Can anyone help with where I can buy this or if it goes by another name in the US?
It's a very high % alcohol that almost absorbs instantly when you paint it on.
Thanks in advance

Isopropyl alcohol is toxic.....yes there are different grades: medical, industrial, etc....Can you use it for what you are doing? Sure, the alcohol evaporates.
But is it toxic. Yes, don't drink it...I believe the lethal amount is about 8oz for the average adult...
You are forming your opinion on your LOCAL knowledge - and you WERE very rude - you jumped in feet first and showed no respect at all - you didn't question the information - just stated is was wrong!! It wasn't !! and YES you are MISTAKEN
I too, am an Australian and know for a fact that the isopropyl alcohol we purchase here through the pharmacist IS what is deemed FOOD-GRADE...... NO you don't drink it - nobody suggested you do. Its main purpose in cake decorating is as a medium to allow dusts to be applied to cakes in a liquid form where it will evaporate off quickly and leave the dusts on the surface. It IS also used to clean stains from cakes, to thin down colours for painting etc.
In Australia - the rose spirit is only added to the isopropyl alcohol to allow it to be sold be cake decorating supply shops WITHOUT the need for them to go through all the government bureacracy associated with a LIQUOR licence.
A sense of humour is a wonderful thing - without laughter, the world is a SUPER boring place
