As long as the towelette isn't drenched in methanol alcohol or benzene, you should be fine. Isopropyl alcohol might dry out your skin, but is otherwise safe. I use wipes after a workout with cold...

You went 6.68 miles averaging 15.6 MPH and burned up 189 cals. The cals seems low for the speed/distance/weight. It seems it should be closer to 48 cals/mile. Just my $2 worth.
