Lemma 10.43.2. Elementary properties of geometrically reduced algebras. Let $k$ be a field. Let $S$ be a $k$-algebra.

If $S$ is geometrically reduced over $k$ so is every $k$-subalgebra.

If all finitely generated $k$-subalgebras of $S$ are geometrically reduced, then $S$ is geometrically reduced.

A directed colimit of geometrically reduced $k$-algebras is geometrically reduced.

If $S$ is geometrically reduced over $k$, then any localization of $S$ is geometrically reduced over $k$.
