* Denatured alcohol (meaning a small amount of denaturant added to ethyl alcohol to make it taste bad.)
Has a variety of purposes in cosmetics. It acts as an anti-foaming agent, astringent, antimicrobial agent, and a solvent. It also helps deliver the active ingredients of a product. Almost every type of skincare product lists it as an ingredient, particularly those specifically designed to treat acne.
Safety Measures/Side Effects:
The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel has ruled it safe, claiming that the dermal application of skin products would not produce harmful exposure to ethyl alcohol. However, those with dry skin may want to avoid using this ingredient, as alcohol does have a tendency to strip the skin of its natural oils. With that in mind, it may be very useful for anyone wishing to treat acne or oily skin.
