Benzyl Alcohol

Benzyl alcohol has a sweet odor.

It is a natural constituent of several essential oils, including ylang ylang, jasmine and styrax.

It is a preservative approved by The Soil Association for use in organic cosmetics.

We often use it as a fragrance element.

It has antibacterial and antiseptic properties.

It occurs naturally in our Flying Fox shower gel as a natural constituent of jasmine absolute and ylang ylang oil.

We use benzyl alcohol in our Daddy-O shampoo as a natural preservative.
