Does Alcohol Have Any Benefit To Acne?

Recommended Posts

I think it's put in products to stop the ingredients going off and to stop mould etc. in the water perhaps.

Its mostly just drying. A lot of the products use it becuase it evaporates quickly which means it feels cooling, leaves no residue and forces you to use more than you need, but all it does is dry out your skin. Very irritating if high on the ingredient list.

Really drying for the skin and irritating most alcohols include SD Alcohol, Alcohol Denate, and IrosPhyll (I heard this one helped some people though)

Yeah, I guess it can be an antibacterial too, many product to disinfect (sorry...sp wrong..) do contain it.
