Description

Description

Alcohol is used since the 14th century in perfumes. Before that, fragrances were diluted in oils.

Alcohol (or Ethanol) is a colourless liquid derived from sugar. It is a very good base for perfumes because it dilutes and enhance the fragrance, making it last longer on the skin. Alcohol is very volatile, so it disappears almost instantly when applied, living a fresh sensation on the skin.

As it is very dangerous for health to drink alcohol in pure high concentration and also because alcohol trade is highly taxed, Alcohol must be denatured in the cosmetic industry, to be unsuitable for consuming. The ethanol molecule is not changed but substances are added to make it undrinkable.

The alcohol you can find in our perfumes is made out of beets in Europe with a super bitter flavouring ingredient, it is safe for the skin but you will regret if you try to drink it!
