Benzyl Alcohol USP, NF, Non-GMO


Formula:  C6H5CH2OH

Benzyl alcohol is used as a local anesthetic and to reduce pain associated with Lidocaine injection. Also, it is used in the manufacture of other benzyl compounds, as a pharmaceutic aid, and in perfumery and flavoring.   It is an organic aromatic alcohol found in many fruits, teas as well as essential oils including Jasmine, Hyacinth and Ylang-Ylang.   Benzyl alcohol is a colorless liquid with a mild pleasant aromatic odor. It is a useful solvent due to its polarity, low toxicity, and low vapor pressure. Benzyl alcohol is partially soluble in water (4 g/100 mL) and forms a homogeneous solution with alcohols and diethyl ether.  Benzyl Alcohol has been used as a solvent for inks, paints, lacquers, and epoxy resin coating. Benzyl alcohol, along with Benzyl Benzoate, are used in a wide variety of cosmetics and personal care products, including baby products, bath products, soap and detergents, makeup including: brushers and eye makeup, cleaning products and other hair, nail and skin products.

  3. A must have to go with sterile vials review by kitsune-san on 2/16/2016

    I've made several purchases of benzyl alcohol from medlabsupply and have not been disappointed. We work with some compounds that are pretty prone to bacterial contamination, but adding a few units of benzyl alcohol to a sterile vial after micron-filtering the solution keeps everything bacteriostatic and in perfect condition for later use if you store it in a sterile vial properly.
