I am investigating safer mascaras with fewer chemicals. I found a company called Dr. Hauschka. They have some ingredients that are okay, but the mascara has sorbitol in it. I am guessing this might be a concern, can anyone confirm this for me?

Sorbitol, also known as glucitol, is a sugar alcohol that the human body metabolizes slowly-wiki.

It shouldn`t be a problem as long as you don`t ingest it.

My body does not tolerate any sugar alcohols or fake sugars (luckily). I have been wanting to buy some natural brands of liquid eyeliners... but they ALL contain sorbitol. I don't use any personal care products that contain free glutamate... so I thought why would I use anything containing another ingredient my body doesn't like? But maybe I'll give it a go... because the natural liquid eyeliner (Jane Iredale--the only one I could find without sorbitol) really does not compare to the drugstore brands.
