ETG test: Is there a list of pers. care ingredients that cause/yield incidental exposure to alcohol or its breakdown products? Is Phenoxyethanol one?

ETG test: Is there a list of pers. care ingredients  that cause/yield incidental exposure to alcohol or its breakdown products? Is Phenoxyethanol one?

Don't know of a list: but phenoxyethanol would not be on it in any case. Ethanol is NOT absorbed through intact skin, and in this product, the ethanol is complexed with a benzene ring that does not allow it to become free. Only alcohol containing mouthwashes that are swallowed, and skin sanitizers that are inhaled can cause positive ETGs. If a sensible cut-off (250-500 ng/ml) is used, this eliminates most of them. ...Read more

I take a etg test 2x a week.I tested positive for alcohol 1x a week for 3 weeks in a row.Gcms neg. Can cetearyl alcohol cause a positive on a etg test?

False positive ETG: Ethyl gluglucuronide (etg) is a breakdown product of ethyl alcohol. It is a good test used to confirm sobriety because it is present in urine much longer than ethanol. Although it is most sensitive for ethyl alcohol, the test can produce a positive result if sufficient amount of other alcohols are consumed/absorbed which are also broken down by the body into ethanol and then into etg. ...Read more

Will the sugar alcohol found in sugar free gums, sodas, sugar substitutes produce a false positive on an etg test?

Will the sugar alcohol found in sugar free gums, sodas, sugar substitutes produce a false positive on an etg test?

No: There isn't anything in sugar substitutes that will cause the etg (ethyl glucuronide) test to show positive. However, because etg test measures products of metabolism of ethyl alcohol from any source, it is sensitive to small amounts of alcohol. It will detect ingestion or exposure to alcohol in mouthwash, cough syrup and other medicated syrups, and possibly even hand sanitizers. ...Read more
