formulations,including oral and parenteral preparations,at concentrations up to 2.0% v/v. In cosmetics,concentrationsup to 3.0% v/v may be used as a preservative. Concentrationsof 5% v/v or more are employed as a solubilizer, while a 10%v/v solution is used as a disinfectant.Benzyl alcohol 10% v/v solutions also have some localanesthetic properties, which are exploited in some parenterals,cough products, ophthalmicsolutions, ointments, and dermatologicalaerosol sprays.Although widely used as an antimicrobialpreservative,benzyl alcohol has been associated with some fatal adversereactions when administered toneonates.
