Checked the ingredients, what is sugar cane ethanol? An alcohol? something used for fuel? Here's something I found

Here is what I found on their site about the sugar cane:

By-product of organic sugar production. Sugar Cane Ethanol, is a natural solvent for organic herbal extracts.

Their site is interesting - gives a breakdown of the ingrediants and what they are in the product for.

Ethanol is a drying alcohol (no matter what it's derived from).

Yes, ethanol (of any kind) can be used to extract botanical essences. What has an impact is how much of it is in a formulation. If it's near the bottom of an ingredient list, then not worrisome.

I did notice it was the second ingredient in the gel, after the aloe. That would make me hesitate.
