Description

Pure Benzyl Alcohol – 100ml

AROMATIC BASE – PRESERVATIVE – SOLVENT – IMPROVES FLUIDITY

Flower Tales Benzyl Alcohol is a multi-purpose ingredient: it is used as a preservative in cosmetic preparations, a fluidifying agent for emulsions, a solvent and an aromatic base in perfumes. It is naturally contained in many Essential Oils.

FLOWER TALES QUALITY: Benzyl Alcohol can be natural or synthetic. Flower Tales Benzyl Alcohol is particularly precious thanks to its 100% natural extraction process that guarantees superior quality. Flower Tales Benzyl Alcohol respects the strict quality standards of European Pharmacopoeia.
