Benzyl Alcohol


Benzyl Alcohol

Benzyl alcohol (and Benzoic acid) are found naturally in many foods such as Apricots, Snap beans, Cocoa, Cranberries, Mushrooms and Honey.

This alcohol is also found in the essential oil of many plants, including Jasmine, Hyacinth and Ylang Ylang.

An approved preservative under the COSMOS Organic Certification criteria. Benzyl alcohol is necessary to keep organic and natural skincare products safe from bacteria.

Considered to be dangerous in high volume only.

It is completely safe for use in skincare and cosmetic products because of the very low amount actually needed ― typically 1% to be effective in the inhibiting of bacterial growth.
