I emailed Simple for a face cream, it has three extracts and I asked them about their extracting solvent if it was alcohol and their reply as follows:

Hello from Simple,
Thank you for your recent email in regards to alcohol in our products. 

These ingredients are not used in Simple products with the exception of Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Anti-perspirant as without this ingredient, it would not dry.

Alternatively, you can contact our Consumer Engagement Centre on our free phone

Once again thank you for contacting us at Simple about your experience and I look forward to hearing from you shortly.
Yours sincerely,

Consumer Engagement Advisor

Product ingredients are as follows:

Aqua, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Glyceryl Stearate, Glycerin, 4-Methylbenzylidene Camphor, Isohexadecane, Butylene Glycol, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Fomes Officinalis Extract, Cetyl Palmitate, Ethylhexyl Triazone, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Carbomer, PEG-100 Stearate, Panthenol, Camellia Sinensis Extract, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Hydroxide, Methylparaben, Allantoin, Disodium EDTA, Tocopheryl Acetate, 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1,3-Diol, Phenoxyethanol, Avena Sativa Kernel Extract, Sodium Benzoate, BHT, Chlorphenesin, Potassium Sorbate, Sorbic Acid, Pantolactone

On their website in FAQs section they have asked the following:

Do any of your products contain alcohol?
Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Anti-perspirant as without this ingredient, it would not dry.
The term 'alcohol' means only that the ingredient has been distilled during its manufacture. Ingredients like 'Cetyl Alcohol' are not connected with the drinking beverage alcohol. However, this alcohol is used in cosmetic products but will be specifically listed as 'Alcohol', 'Alcohol Denat' or 'Ethyl Alcohol' on the product label.

They don't use any animal derived ingredients in their products so can I use it?

thank you

They did not answer the name of extracting solvent, It also has fat based Glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate ingredients which source is known to manufacture.

Since they did not answer your question, I will not recommend this product.
