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?

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?

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
