Benzyl Salicylate As a Naturally Occurring Component
Q.) Why does benzyl salicylate appear at the bottom of some ingredient lists? It this a safe ingredient for pregnant or breastfeeding women?
A.) Benzyl salicylate is listed individually on some product packaging in order to comply with European Union regulations. These regulations are about specifically identifying certain potential allergens that may be present in trace amounts. Benzyl salicylate is never added as an ingredient in Josh Rosebrook products. Rather, it is a naturally occurring component of some essential oils and plant extracts such as ylang ylang and primrose. It's naturally part of the plant!
