Ethanol is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as a disinfectant. Alcohol is an indispensable basic product to get started making cosmetics. Always properly clean and disinfect work surfaces, tools and containers to prevent contamination and bacterial growth.
Alcohol can be found in many categories of hair, cosmetic and hygiene products, such as hair styling products, foundations, perfumes and deodorants. Alcohol is used in cosmetics because of its high volatility (it disappears immediately after application), its drying, refreshing and antimicrobial properties. It facilitates the penetration of active ingredients into the superficial layers of the skin and promotes the deposition of ingredients on the skin or hair. In makeup, for example, it improves the deposition of foundation pigments on the skin. It is a very useful hydrolyzing agent that helps dissolve certain ingredients.
