Adding Alcohol


Why are we considering adding mouthwash at home to our Body wrap?

Most mouthwashes you find in drug stores contain a high concentration of alcohol (specifically ethanol).

Alcohol is a skin penetration enhancer and increases absorption rates of the other ingredients—both because it breaks down the skin’s natural barriers, and because it pulls apart chemicals into individual constituents, so that particles are small enough to absorb. Many transdermal patches on the market today for weight loss, motion sickness and pain relief have tested successfully for safety and effectiveness because they contain ethanol that saturates the active ingredients and provides a controlled delivery though the skin.
