Under the name 'Cosmetic Hair Water' we sell a cosmetic product consisting largely of alcohol. It is very suitable for making perfumes, aftershave and other cosmetics with alcohol. It is duty-free, so relatively cheap. It has a very light odour of its own which is rarely a problem when used.

Not intended for use in food, vape liquids or other internal use. Simply: it does not meet the quality requirements for such products, can be harmful with such use.

The name 'Cosmetic Hair Water' (Kosmetisches Haarwasser) is an invention of the German television program Hobbythek. In a legal sense, the product is a cosmetic (intended for cleaning greasy hair), which avoids a lot of problems related to excise duties and other legislation. Because the legislator does not intend to tax alcohol intended for cosmetics, we do not find it a problem to use this construction. This construction may not be accepted everywhere, which is why we only deliver this product in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany!

For the same reason, it can not be used for non-cosmetic applications such as air fresheners.

The product is a cosmetic, not a cosmetic raw material. For that reason, the documentation we have for almost all other raw materials is not available, so it cannot be used to make professional end products.


Use this product as a fragrance carrier for making perfumes. Most fragrance raw materials mix with it. Mix the fragrance raw materials and the Cosmetic Hair Water together and stir briefly. When it does not solve: leaving it for a while sometimes works wonders. Some substances do not mix well with Cosmetic Hair Water. Especially solids such as Musk Ketone can cause problems. By mixing the solids and liquid fragrances in advance and then mixing this mixture with the Cosmetic Hair Water, the problem is usually solved.


Cosmetic Hair Water consists almost entirely of alcohol (± 95%) and water (± 4%). In addition, a little panthenol and a small amount of a light perfume.

In connection with questions we get about this every now and then: whether you make a perfume with pure alcohol, perfumer's alcohol or cosmetic hair water: the end result is in almost all cases the same perfume, of which only an expert with a very good nose can tell the difference between can smell. Here you can read more about perfumer's alcohol.


Although Cosmetic Hair Water is legally a cosmetic and therefore does not fall under the REACH / CLP regulation, we have chosen to label it in accordance with this legislation. That yields the following:

H225 - Highly flammable liquid and vapour.
H319 - Causes serious eye irritation.

An allergic reaction to the perfume used is conceivable, but unlikely.
