Bad VS. Good Alcohols

The bad alcohols like Alcohol, Alcohol denat, Ethanol etc. will irritate some skin types. These bad alcohols can weaken and strip your skin out of its natural protective oils, so it becomes dry, vulnerable to bacteria (yes, the kind that causes acne and irritation), and accelerate skin ageing.

Please avoid these kind of alcohols when you want to buy some skincare products.
