Some may contain ethanol, but primarily the alcohol for (non-drinking) use is isopropanol. It is much cheaper and manufactured. Furthermore, unlike ethanol-containing products, there's no danger of anyone (in different times) using it for a beverage (directly or by re distillation) without rapid and unpleasant consequences.

Generally sold as 70% and 91% solutions with water, but some more dilute concoctions are available either as witch hazel or in cheap-junk stores that give you the idea you're getting a bargain unless you notice it's 50%.

An added plus for ispropanol (i.e., normal rubbing alcohol) is that it's less volatile than ethanol.

Methanol, another very cheap manufactured alcohol is extremely toxic and can be absorbed through the skin with serious consequences. It generally only shows up in things like car wiper fluid.
