Uses of ethanol in the pharmaceutical industry

Ethanol is most commonly used in the pharmaceutical industry as a preservative and solvent. Additionally, alcohol can enhance the absorption of ointments and gels, and has sedative, cooling, antipyretic and disinfectant qualities. These pharmacological characteristics of ethanol are however strongly dependent on the concentration of the product.
