WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ALCOHOL IN COSMETICS
WHY DOES ALCOHOL COME IN COSMETIC PRODUCTSAT ALLPURE?
There are two reasons for this. There is hardly any other ingredient that kills bacteria absolutely reliably and dissolves fat at the same time. The fat-dissolving effect in particular is necessary for herbal active ingredients that are not water-soluble. In this case, alcohol is the most commonly used extraction agent for natural extracts, or to put it more simply: alcohol elicits the active ingredients. It sounds logishish and somehow natural, but what's the problem then?
THE TYPE OF ALCOHOL MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
"GOOD" AND "BAD" ALCOHOLS AT A GLANCE
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT "BAD" ALCOHOLS
Sometimes the use of "bad" alcohols in cosmetic products cannot be avoided. This applies in particular to certain product types from the medical sector or products that can only be manufactured with "bad" alcohols due to a recipe based on certain plants. In these cases, however, the concentration is the lowest possible in order to protect the skin as much as possible.
