Aroma Ingredient Usage Statistics
CAS Number: 100-51-6
The statistical data we collected from 55 public perfume formulas suggests that the mean dose for benzyl alcohol is 5.0%. The typical lower limit is 2.5%, and the usual higher limit is 9.5%. The highest amount of benzyl alcohol we encountered in any single formula is 36%, and the lowest was 0.31%.
Please note that according to the IFRA Standard Category 4, the level of benzyl alcohol should not exceed 2.5% of the final product. Assuming that you will be using your formula for an alcoholic perfume at a 10% dilution, this means you should only use benzyl alcohol at 25% or less of the formula.
