What is Benzoic acid?

Use & Benefits:

Benzoic acid is commonly used as a preservative. Sometimes as its sodium salt. It also does not let skin surface loose moisture thus it retains moisture. Benzoic acid and its derivatives also act as free radical scavengers and thus help with inhibition of skin damage by free radicals.
