Benzyl alcohol is produced naturally by many plants and is commonly found in fruits and teas. It is also found in a variety of essential oils including jasmine, hyacinth, and ylang-ylang. Benzyl alcohol is used as a general solvent for inks, paints, lacquers, and epoxy resin coatings. It is also a precursor to a variety of esters, used in the soap, perfume, and flavor industries.

All of our chemicals are originally purchased as USP/NF/Kosher grade; however, because they are purchased in bulk containers and re-bottled, we must sell them as “Technical Grade”. Rest assured, the re-bottling process takes place in a very clean environment, with the utmost care to maintain the product's purity. The re-bottling process does not take place in an FDA certified clean room (at a cost of over $100,000.00), these products are technically no longer USP grade. We guarantee the original potency of all re-bottled products and nothing at all is ever added or diluted.
