Used in cosmetics

Low molecular weight alcohols, acids and esters are widely used in cosmetics. For example, batyl alcohol, derived from glycerin is a non-drying fatty alcohol used as a stabilizing and skin-conditioning ingredient in skin care products; salicylic acid has been found to exfoliate, degrease the skin, reduce inflammation and improve the appearance of pores, and it is increasingly being used as a staple ingredient in acne-related skin care products; Parabens are a family of related chemicals that are commonly used as preservatives in cosmetic products to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and mold.
