Not everything that contains "alcohol" is really the alcohol you'd expect. They generally refer to "Alcohol-free" as products that do not contain alcohol that irritate the skin.

Yep, there's alcohol like rubbing/SD alcohol which are drying/antibac-in-high-%/penetration-enhancers, and then there are fatty alcohols which are moisturizing/coating, like cetyl and cetearyl alcohol.l
