Description Ingredients & Technical Information Formulation and Usage Information
Benzoin (Styrax benzoin) is a species of tree native to Sumatra in Indonesia. Common names for the tree include gum benjamin tree, loban(in Arabic), kemenyan(in Indonesia and Malaysia), onycha, and Sumatra benzoin tree. It is cultivated as a main source of benzoin resin in Indonesia. It is also grown as an ornamental tree for shade in West Africa. Deep incisions are made in the trunk of the tree, from which the grayish colored sap exudes. When the resinous lump becomes hard and brittle, it is collected from the bark.

Benzoin oil is extracted from the resin of a seven years and older tree by solvent extraction and yields about 65-85 % oil. Chemical composition Benzoin oil's main chemical components are benzoic, cinnamic acids, benzyl benzoate, benzoic aldehyde, vanillin and coniferyl benzoate.

Benzoin oil has a sweet, warm and vanilla-like aroma and is golden brown in color, with a treacle-like viscosity.

Benzoin oil can provide the skin a general boost by increasing elasticity, reducing redness, irritation and itchiness, while helping wound healing. Blended in a cream, Benzoin oil is a good remedy for dry, cracked skin, cuts and wounds, as well as for acne and irritable and itching skin, while at the same time improving elasticity.

Benzoin oil blends well with bergamot, coriander, frankincense, juniper, lavender, lemon, myrrh, orange, petitgrain, rose and sandalwood. It is also used as a fixative in the perfume industry.
