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?

Dr. Keith Goldstein

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

How long does alcohol stay in your system and how does a etg urine test work?

Generally an : Hour for every drink you drink. So if you don't have the time to wait in a safe place after drinking or use dd.The etg test can still be positive 3-5 days after intake because it tests for longer acting metabolites. Be really careful, if you are trying to stay a step ahead of the law. Testing gets better quickly. A woman should only drink 1 drink/day, and only if your apo e is not a 3/4 or 4/4. ...Read more
