Lemma 10.44.6. Let $k$ be a perfect field. Any reduced $k$ algebra is geometrically reduced over $k$. Let $R$, $S$ be $k$-algebras. Assume both $R$ and $S$ are reduced. Then the $k$-algebra $R \otimes _ k S$ is reduced.
The first statement follows from Lemma 10.43.3. For the second statement use the first statement and Lemma 10.42.5.
