Are there any alcohols in the reNEW All-in-One or Moisturizer formulas? If so, what purpose do they serve?
In the reNEW All-in-One there is no form of Alcohol, but in the reNEW Moisturizer there are fatty plant based alcohols that are solid at room temperature.
So, what purpose do they serve? These fatty plant based alcohols are the purest way to use plant oils to bind with other ingredients, creating a safe protective barrier for your skin to prevent it from losing its naturally produced moisture. They also help to retain moisture brought to the skin through humectant, or in other words, ingredients that support in helping the skin obtain moisture from outside of itself.
