Benzyl benzoate is clear, colourless and has a faint balsamic odour.
It occurs naturally in essential oils, and is found in ylang ylang, rosewood, cinnamon and benzoin.
By law, we are required to display which fragrance materials we use in products. Benzyl benzoate, for example, must be listed whether it is a naturally occurring constituent of an essential oil, or added as an ingredient itself. This allows people with allergies to make informed choices with our products.
Benzyl benzoate has excellent solvent properties, and can be used to dissolve other perfume materials.
