Skin Care

Salicylic acid and Methyl Salicylate are both widely used in the formulation of many cosmetic products. 


Oral Care

Thanks to its disinfectant and antiseptic properties, Methyl Salicylate will disinfect the bacteria causing gingivitis and plaque buildup. It is used in mouthwashes & toothpastes where its strong typical taste is very popular.

Our premium plus and pharma grades Methyl Salicylate are Kösher and Halal certified, FDA registered and compliant with HACCP, USP and European Pharmacopoeia.


Home Care

Salicylic acid is used as synthesis intermediate to make key salicylate esters by esterification. Quality and purity of salicylic acid can have a direct impact on the odor and the chemical purity of the final ester.

Fragrance ingredients produced from salicylic acid can be :Benzyl salicylate, Hexyl Salicylate, Amyl Salicylate, Cyclohexyl Salicylate, Ethyl Salicylate.

Methyl salicylate is used as a fragrance ingredient in perfume compositions.

Odor and product stability must be perfect in order to stabilize the overall composition made with other fragrance agents.

Methyl salicylate is also used as synthesis intermediate to make salicylate esters by transesterification. Salicylate esters can be also manufactured with salicylic acid, but methyl salicylate allows a straight-forward reaction, with higher yield.

As a liquid methyl salicylate is easier to transfer.
