Unfortunately, propolis is naturally not soluble in water or fat. In order to be able to process it (whether in cosmetics or as a solution), it must therefore first be dissolved in alcohol. We sometimes hear from customers: "Why do all of your products contain alcohol?" and that is exactly the reason. There is NO propolis without alcohol. The alcohol we use (ethanol) is of natural and vegetable origin, which is very important to us.
"Alcohol-free" propolis tinctures can also be found online or in markets. Unfortunately, this is only half the story. The product does not contain the drinking alcohol (ethanol) we know, but in most cases propylene glycol, a polyhydric alcohol, is the main ingredient. This is synthetically made and considered for the skin questionable classified. Unfortunately, this is a substance that we do not want to use, neither in our cosmetics nor in foods such as propolis drops, and therefore we prefer to stick with the classic propolis tincture with real alcohol, which grandmother already used :-)
Even if we have to give you a clear "no" to this question, we hope you understand our reasoning behind it. Propolis is such a great substance from nature that we do not want to mix it with synthetically produced questionable alcohols and then want to make eyewash with the word "alcohol-free".
