There seems to be some confusion about alcohol in skin care products lately. 🤔
We use alcohol in some of our products; food grade, certified organic grain alcohol (Ethanol). This should not be confused with isopropyl or rubbing alcohol - which we know to be drying to skin when used alone in extremely high concentrations, repeatedly.
Ethanol, on the other hand, is an excellent organic, nontoxic way to preserve a product. And when it is formulated with deeply moisturizing ingredients, is not drying to the skin. This is mostly due to ethanol being very volatile compared to plant oils. So, once you dispense your face cleanser into your hand and begin rubbing it on your face, the alcohol has evaporated and what’s left behind is cleansing, moisturizing oils. 💚🌿 Ethanol, derived from the fermentation of starch, sugar, and other carbohydrates, can also be used to extract botanicals. — Have you ever used a tincture? This is the same science. 👨🏻🔬🧪— When ethanol comes in contact with a plant, like Green Tea leaves, the highly beneficial phytochemicals are released into the alcohol - making them active for absorption and use by your cells. If the phytochemicals were not released and activated in this way, then you would essentially be rubbing tea leaves on your face - which doesn’t really do anything. ☺️ So, ethanol is great for organically preserving and activating tea and flower extracts in your skin care products. 💚💚💚
