Benzyl Alcohol

I’m usually added to formulas as a preservative, but sometimes I’m just a naturally occurring chemical compound in certain essential oils & absolutes: in that case, I’m called out so you know I’m there, just in case you might be sensitive to me in particular.

Technical Term
Benzyl Alcohol
Ingredient Class
Supportive ingredient

I help make formulations their best and most effective

How I work

I’m a preservative that makes sure Allkinds products last as long as they’re supposed to: I help to protect them from bacterial contamination. I'm also a naturally occurring part of essential oils and absolutes that help make sure Allkinds products smell awesome—if you’re particularly sensitive to me, you can avoid products that have me on their ingredients list. You can usually find me in oils with sweet, floral scents, like jasmine and hyacinth.
