Ingredients: Denatured Alcohol (Ethanol)

Ethanol, also called alcohol, ethyl alcohol and grain alcohol, is a clear, colorless liquid and the principle ingredient in alcoholic beverages like beer, wine or brandy. Because it can readily dissolve in water and other organic compounds, ethanol also is an ingredient in a range of products, from personal care and beauty products to paints and varnishes to fuel.

Ethyl alcohol must be made unfit for drinking before it can be used in cosmetics. Various substances such as denatnium benzoate are added to the alcohol to make it malodorous and obnoxious in order to completely prevent its use for drinking.

Commonly used in cosmetic ingredients as an astringent and as a preservative in lotions and can even help hairspray adhere to the hair.

Ethanol is also effective in killing microorganisms like bacteria, fungi and viruses, therefore is popular for the use of hand sanitsers and cleaning products.

Flammable Ethanol Uses:

Ethanol is a very versatile product and can be used in a variety of applications. It is an effective solvent in the paints, lacquers and varnish industry.

Ethanol 99% vs. Ethanol 70%

Ethanol 99% is more suited to cleaning type applications when a quick evaporation rate is required. Where as ethanol 70% is also known as rubbing alcohol, that can be used on the skin to disinfect and kill bacteria. The difference is the moisture content and the strength of the alcohol. The higher the strength the more it will flash off but in the circumstance when you need to kill bacteria, sometimes the 70% works better as it has longer surface time, therefore, more time to kill the germs.

If you are looking for a quick surface disinfectant and equipment cleaner then our 70% Ethanol would be suitable. Can also be used as it comes directly on the skin as a sanitiser but may over time cause dryness. If you are looking to use on the skin we suggest purchasing 99% ethanol to use in your formula or purchasing our ready made hand sanitiser.
