ALCOHOL: Alcohol is one of the most misunderstood ingredients in skincare. Alcohol has become an extremely unpopular skin-care ingredient despite the fact that it can be extremely helpful. There are many different kinds of alcohol.
There are three primary types of alcohols:
Simple alcohols. Simple alcohols include substances such as methanol, ethanol, propanol and denatured alcohol and are primarily used in skincare for their antibacterial properties. They may also be added to act as solvents for other ingredients in the formula. Although these alcohols can dry out the skin if applied alone or in large enough concentrations, when combined with the right ingredients in the proper ratios, these alcohols shouldn’t negatively affect the skin and may aid in ingredient delivery, according to cosmetic chemist Perry Romanowski.
Fatty alcohols. Some of the most common examples of fatty alcohols used in skincare products include cetearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol and isostearyl alcohol. Unlike simple alcohols, fatty alcohols have emollient and occlusive characteristics. These ingredients can actually help to keep the skin hydrated, making them beneficial in many types of topical products.
Aromatic alcohols. Skincare products that contain fragrances may utilize aromatic alcohols such as benzyl alcohol or components of essential oil concentrations. These ingredients may cause skin irritation or dryness, especially for those with sensitive skin. To avoid this type of alcohol, choose fragrance-free products.
Fatty alcohols are absolutely non-irritating and can be exceptionally beneficial for skin. Examples you’ll see on ingredient labels include cetyl, stearyl, and cetearyl alcohol. All of these are good ingredients for dry skin, and in small amounts fine for any skin type as they give a pleasing texture and help keep ingredients stable in products. It’s important to discern these skin-friendly forms of alcohol from the problematic types of alcohol.
In the entire Skincare line of CrystalhealthGoddess only one or two products contain alcohol and it is the #2 Fatty Alcohol so you have nothing to worry about.
