Ethyl (or ethanol) Alcohol on the labeling of cosmetic products like Alcohol Denat, according to his official INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients), which corresponds to the abbreviation of "denatured alcohol". Alcohol has been in use since the origin of the cosmetic for maceration, extraction, solutions ... Actually, in the cosmetic sector and not pure alcohol used, but mixed with denaturing agents of very bitter taste, which prevents their use as alcoholic beverage .
In most cosmetics that contain this ingredient is used as solvent of the active or other components of the formula by chemical characteristics that are not soluble in water. In other products is included for its astringent properties (for treatment of oily) or, more sporadic, to modify viscosity of a formulation or enhance the absorption of creams; much also used as a preservative for its biocidal capacity.
Among the cosmetic normally include alcohol in their formulas apart from perfumes and colognes, of course- found fastening products for hair, as lacquers, hair gels or hair mousses; is also normal to appear on products aftershave lotions and acne, dandruff and against hair loss. Many deodorants include denat alcohol in its composition as well, but more specifically, certain emulsions.
