Ingredients Lists: Alcohol

We’re careful about the ingredient lists of what we eat, but what about our beauty products? Let’s start reading their ingredients with understanding alcohols first. As I explain in the video, alcohols can be seperated into three groups. I name them as Simple, Good and Perfumed alcohols. (That’s just what makes the most sense in my head) You can see these on the ingredients lists as listed below:

Simple: SD alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, alcohol denat.

Good: cetyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol

Perfumed: benzyl alcohol

Happy conscious shopping!
