Isopropyl alcohol is mixed with water for use as a rubbing-alcohol antiseptic. It is also used in aftershave lotions, hand lotions, and other cosmetics. In industry it is used as an inexpensive solvent for cosmetics, drugs, shellacs, and gums, as well as for denaturing ethanol (ethyl alcohol)
For years, doctors and parents sponged rubbing alcohol onto kids' skin to treat fevers. It does make skin cooler to the touch, but today, science shows that alcohol is dangerous because it can soak into the skin and cause alcohol poisoning, coma, and even death, especially for babies and small children.
Isopropyl alcohol is readily absorbed through the skin, so spilling large amounts of IPA on the skin may cause accidental poisoning. Small amounts of IPA on the skin is generally not dangerous, but repeated skin exposure can cause itching, redness, rash, drying, and cracking.
It has multiple application. Some like as below -
- Nitrocellulose lacquers and thinners
- Coupling agent in cleaners and polishes
- Dehydrating agent
- Cosmetics and toiletries
- Rubbing compounds
- Lithographic printing
- Chemical intermediate
- General purpose cleaners
