SD Alcohol Free

In the hair care industry, the claim "Alcohol-Free" refers to products that do not contain "Ethel Alcohol" or "Denatured Alcohol", listed as SD Alcohol or Alcohol Dent. on labels. These alcohols, which are basically rubbing alcohol, can be very drying. Other ingredients may contain the term "alcohol" such as, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol and Cetearyl Alcohol, among others. These alcohols are known as "fatty alcohols" and are not drying but rather are conditioning and good for hair.
