Alcohols are a bit confusing - there are good alcohols and bad alcohols! What the!?

The types of alcohols to avoid are ethanol type alcohols - they're very drying to your skin, which can lead to all sorts of issues. We would never put these alcohols in our products.

BUT... you might have seen Cetearyl Alcohol in the ingredients list for some of our cream-based products. This is a different type of alcohol altogether and is actually a naturally derived fatty acid which moisturises and protects your skin rather than stripping and drying it. Don't be scared off by its name :)
