So, what is benzyl salicylate?

Benzyl salicylate is a colorless to pale yellow liquid with a sweet floral aroma commonly used in the fragrance industry. It occurs naturally in some essential oils like ylang-ylang, jasmine, and hyacinth. In the food industry, it's used as a flavoring agent, particularly in baked goods, candies, and chewing gum. Benzyl salicylate also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it a common ingredient in skin care products like lotions, creams, and sunscreens. However, it can be a potential allergen for some individuals, so it's important to check product labels for its presence.
