    What is it?

    Is it just alcohol and water?

    The label says:

    Active Ingredient - Witch Hazel 86% (that doesn't help)

    Inactive Ingredient - Alcohol 14% by volume.

    I believe it's the active ingredient in hemorhoid medicine.

    Witch Hazel is a plant, and also an astringent extracted from the plant.

    Try here.

    Spectacular!

    Let's review:

    A: Good for hemorhoid (or rather bad for them). If none is available use a rubber band.

    B: It (Witch hazel) is a plant

    C: Use Googoo - it's for smart people.

    Got it.

    Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch hazel)

    Contains
    Tannins, which constrict the area of injury.
    Antiseptics

    No-one says it doesn't work.
    Probably not greatly promoted because not patentable

    It's crushed up extract of witches. They make it after they try to drown a woman and she doesn't sink. I learned that in Biology class.
