Why does my toner have alcohol in it? Red Lotus in Portland, Oregon talks about why you should be cautious when using daily skincare products that contain alcohol.
Why is there alcohol in your skin care products? They're used to help ingredients mix together to form a finished product, act as preservatives, and temporarily shrink your pores.
Why don’t you want them there? Some alcohols used in skin care are drying, irritating, and damaging to your skin, and many contain petroleum-derived additives that you definitely don’t want on your face.
Even the types of alcohols that are pretty much harmless aren’t doing anything good for your skin, but if you replaced the alcohol with healing aloe juice, your skin would be singing joyful noises (or dancing or painting or doing whatever your skin does when it wants to express itself).
All we’re saying is, be choosy when it comes to the ingredients in your skin care. There are so many plant-based ingredients out there that your skin loves, so there’s no need to settle for skin-drying alcohols. All of our skincare products that we carry contain no alcohol or drying ingredients.
