Why Does Mamma Keep Her Products Alcohol Free?

Homeopathic mamaMamma has always been able to detect alcohol in products. Anytime she would buy lotion products for her skin, she would immediately know that there was alcohol in the product.  When Mamma would rub the lotion on her skin it would seem to absorb rapidly and then her skin would feel somewhat raw.  After a lot of trial and error to find a good product, Mamma realized that the alcohol in the product she had used had actually been creating more of a problem than helping her skin.  

Alcohol is in many skin care products.  Some people have reactions to alcohol and others don't.  Alcohol actually acts as a pathway to open the skin and deliver the product to the underlying layers of the skin.  In a sense, it abrades the skin.  Whenever you abrade the skin you are traumatizing it.  You can read more about alcohol in skin care products at www.bubbleandbee.com and www.paulaschoice.com  Alcohol has many different applications in products that are helpful, but Mamma doesn't like it on her skin.  She likes a more natural way.  

This is the reason that Mamma developed OliveMe Creme, OliveMe Lotion and Aloe Jelly Jiggle, so that she could have topical moisturizers that would be more gentle on her skin.  

Many of us get very concerned about what we should use and how we should look.  A lot of advertising is geared this way.  Really, we should all be our own best advocate for what works best for our own skin and what is safe for us.  Have you had a reaction to alcohol?  What products do you like that are alcohol free?  Talk to Mamma and let her know!

I’d genuinely appreciate it.

Thank you for your question on Talk to Mamma! In general, "alcohols", are categorized by how they are derived. Ethyl alcohols ~ ethyl alcohol, ethanol, alcohol denat, are petroleum derived. They are sometimes used as preservatives in skincare products and "fixing agents" in fragrances. If you use a product that has these alcohols present, you should try to determine the concentration. You can contact the company, but as a general rule if you look at the listing of ingredients on the product label you can tell if the concentration of alcohol is lower or higher. The ingredients listed first are the highest concentration in descending order to the lowest concentration of ingredient. Ethyl alcohols are generally drying , especially to people with dry and sensitive skin. If the alcohol concentration in a product is low, however, it may not have as much as of a drying effect. When the skin is dried, irritated, or abraded, you can develop a rash or "topical inflammation". This has happened to me many times since I have very dry and sensitive skin. I have to stay away from these alcohols. Many people do not have a topical reaction to these alcohols, which is why you need to be your own best advocate and find what works for you. Another category of alcohols, is the "fatty alcohols". These are listed as Cetearyl Alcohol or Stearyl Alcohol on product labels. These are usually naturally derived from vegetable sources or coconut. These alcohols are actually moisturizing to the skin and can also be emulsifiers. These alcohols would be less likely to cause skin irritation , especially if you have dry and sensitive skin. As a reference for you, I would suggest you visit the Environmental Working Group Site. They are an independent advocacy group that categorizes products and ingredients. They have a Cosmetic Safety Database and for simplicity visit www.ewg.org and in the search bar enter alcohol. It will list many different types of alcohol , their chemical structure and their hazard rating. This information will help you better select the products that may be a healthier fit for you. Mamma wants you to feel good !!
