Benzyl Alcohol | Frula Beauty | Skincare for glowing skin

What is Benzyl Alcohol in skincare?

It's derived from fruit (usually cranberries and apricots), comes in the form of a colorless liquid, and has a slightly sweet scent. As a multifunctional ingredient, you can spot benzyl alcohol on the ingredient label of many different skincare, cosmetic, and personal products, such as moisturizers, lip balms, face washes, and even makeup.

Benefits of Benzyl Alcohol for Skin

Besides possibly having antioxidant effects in certain formulas, benzyl alcohol doesn't have any specific benefits for your skin itself, but rather helps to optimize skincare formulas so that they can better perform for your skin.

Stabilizes the formula: The ingredient also acts as a stabilizing agent against the oxidative breakdown of the product, which means it allows your products to work more effectively for a longer period.
Has antioxidant activity: It also has antioxidant properties, and antioxidants protect against free-radical damage.
Dissolves ingredients: Benzyl alcohol acts as a solvent and helps to dissolve other ingredients in a product's formula.
Decreases viscosity: Benzyl alcohol also decreases viscosity, which allows products to flow more easily.
