The Benzoin tree originates in java, Sumatra and Thailand where it can grow up to 8 meters (20 feet). Deep incisions are made in the trunk of the tree from which the grayish-colored sap exudes. When the resinous lump become hard and brittle, it is collected from the bark. It is then cleaned and processed by solvent extraction to produce the thick, resinous oil. Also known as Gum Benjamin, It is recommended placing the bottle in very hot water bath, changing the water frequently and once it is back to the liquid state, gently agitate before use.   

Benzoin was first reported in 1832 by Justus von Liebig and Friedrich Woehler during their research on oil of bitter almond which is benzaldehyde with traces of hydrocyanic acid. The catalytic synthesis by the benzoin condensation was improved by Nikolay Zinin during his time with Liebig.

Benzoin resinoid is a sticky solid. To render it pourable, it is diluted to 50% in benzyl alcohol, benzyl benzoate, di propylene glycol, or other solvent. Diethyl phthalate is less commonly used today as a diluent due to toxicity concerns. Small amount of benzoic acid, benzyl cinnamate, ethyl cinnamate and vanillin may be added as odorous adulterants 



Safety summary

·        Hazards: Skin sensitization (low risk).

·        Caution (dermal): Hypersensitive, diseased or damaged skin, children under 2 years of age.

·        Maximum adult daily oral dose: 368 mg

·        Maximum dermal use level: 2%

Safety advice:

Our oral maximum is based on a limit of 5 mg/kg for ‘benzoic acid equivalents’, which constitute up to 95% of benzoin. Our dermal maximum is a best- practice estimate for skin safety. 

Organ-specific effects

·        Adverse skin reactions:  In a modified Draize produce on guinea pigs, benzoin ‘oil’ was skin sensitizing when used at 10%in the challenge phase. Benzoic acid and cinnamic acid have produce some allergy reactions. Benzyl benzoate and benzyl alcohol are listed in the EU as allergens, but the risk of allergy from either is negligible. In patch tested of 477 dermatitis patients, 45 had a positive reaction to compound tincture of benzoin Of the 45,14 had a strong positive reactions, and 28 had cross-reactions to similar allergens. Up to 80% of patients sensitive to peru balsam reacted positively to siamese benzoin. Since both row materials contain coniferyl benzoate this may be responsible, but it is known to be present in benzoin resinoids.     

·        Reproductive toxicity: The reproductive toxicity data for benzyl benzoate, benzyl alcohol, benzoic acid and cinnamic acid do not suggest any restrictions in the use of benzoin in pregnancy beyond those outlined above.

Systematic effects

·        Acute toxicity: No information found for benzoin. Benzyl alcohol and benzyl benzoate possess low acute toxicity. 

·        Carcinogenic/ anticarcinogenic potential: Gum benzoin was mutagenic in a mouse lymphoma assay, but not in Chinese hamster ovary cells. Gum benzoin produced CA in Chinese hamster lung cells, but was not genotoxic in a mouse micronucleus test on in the S. typhimurium TA135/Psk1002 umu test. It was not carcinogenic when fed to male rats at 125 or 250 ppm, to female rats at 250 or 500 ppm, and the male and female mice at 2,500 0r 5,000 ppm for 104 weeks. The resinoid contains known carcinogens, and the MLA and CHL result ae false positives. 


·        Benzene and its derivatives, despite being highly aromatic, are toxic in nature. Therefore, ingestion or inhalation of excessive quantities can cause nausea, vomiting, headache, and lack of oxygen in the blood so it should be avoided.  


·        Ecotoxicity: very toxic to aquatic environment.

·        Bioaccumulation: Bioaccumulation unlikely

·        Mobility in soil: No data available

·        Persistence and degradability: No data available

·        Biodegradation: expected

·        PBT and vPvB assessment: No data available
