Resorcinol is used topically as an antiseptic agent and disinfectant for the prevention of different skin problems, such as acne, scabies, warts, and corns. It helps to get rid of hard, scaly, or rough skin and produces a soothing effect. It is an isomer of Benzenediol and appears as a white crystalline solid/flakes or powder at room temperature. Upon exposure to air, it turns light pink and is soluble in water with the solution having a bitter taste. Our premium quality Resorcinol Crystals are recommended for a wide variety of applications due to their high purity.
Resorcinol is an organic compound with the formula C₆H₄(OH)₂. It is one of three isomeric benzenediols, the 1,3-isomer. It is a white, water-soluble solid.

Resorcinol (or resorcin) is an organic compound with the formula C6H4(OH)2. It is a white, water-soluble solid. Resorcinol appears as white needles, plates, crystals, flakes or powder. It has a faint odor and a sweet, followed by a bitter taste. Resorcinol dissolves in water. USE: Resorcinol is used to make other chemicals and pharmaceuticals such as acne creams, hair dyes and sun tan lotions. Resorcinol crystallizes from benzene as colorless needles that are readily soluble in water, alcohol, and ether, but insoluble in chloroform and carbon disulfide. Resorcinol is used to manufacture personal care products.
Resorcinol is used n tanning, photography; manuf of resins, resin adhesives, hexylresorcinol, p-aminosalicylic acid, explosives, dyes, tires, rubber products; in cosmetics; dyeing and printing textiles; as a reagent for zinc. Resorcinol is used primarily in the rubber industry for tires & reinforced rubber products (conveyer belts, driving belts) and in high-quality wood adhesives. It is also used in the preparation of dyes & pharmaceuticals, as a cross-linking agent for neoprene & a rubber tackifier and in cosmetics.
Resorcinol is a chemical intermediate for production of m-aminophenol, production of light stabilizers for plastics, production of sunscreen preparations for the skin, production of dyes (fluorescein, eosin), manufacture of special pharmaceuticals (e.g. acne preparations). Resorcinol (1,3 benzenediol; m-dihydroxybenzene: resorcin) is a pharmaceutical agent used topically in dermatological treatments such as acne and related skin conditions. It could also be used in combination with the other acne treatment agents such as sulphur. Resorcinol is a chemical intermediate used in oxidation of hair dyes.
In cosmetics and personal care products, both Resorcinol and 2-Methylresorcinol are typically used in the formulation of hair dyes and colors. Resorcinol is also used in other hair and skin care products. Resorcinol and 2-Methylresorcinol help impart color to hair. Resorcinol is a white crystalline solid with a sweet taste. 2-Methylresorcinol is a slightly yellow crystalline powder. In cosmetics and personal care products, both Resorcinol and 2-Methylresorcinol are typically used in the formulation of hair dyes and colors. Resorcinol is also used in other hair and skin care products. Resorcinol is used for skin whitening.
Resorcinol topical (for the skin) is used to treat pain and itching caused by minor cuts and scrapes, burns, insect bites, poison ivy, sunburn, or other skin irritations. Resorcinol topical is also used to treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, seborrhea, corns, calluses, warts, and other skin disorders.
Resorcinol is present in over-the-counter topical acne treatments at 2% or less concentration, and in prescription treatments at higher concentrations. Resorcinol is one of the active ingredients in products such as Resinol, Vagisil, and Clearasil. 4-Hexylresorcinol is an anesthetic found in throat lozenges.
Resorcinol is also used as a chemical intermediate for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals and other organic compounds. It is used in the production of diazo dyes and plasticizers and as a UV absorber in resins.
Resorcinol is an analytical reagent for the qualitative determination of ketoses (Seliwanoff's test). Resorcinol is the starting material for resorcinarene molecules and the initiating explosive lead styphnate. Resorcinol reacts with formaldehyde to form a thermoset resin which can form the basis of an aerogel.
Phenylethyl Resorcinol is a whitening agent Resorcinol. It is also known as SymWhite 377. It was developed by Symrise researchers to serve as a lightening and brightening ingredient in skin care products, hair lightening products, and cosmetics.
Phenylethyl resorcinol (4-(1-phenylethyl)1,3-benzenediol) (PR) is a new whitening agent that has been found to have the ability to inhibit tyrosinase activity.
It is an antioxidant that is considered effective in influencing the formation of pigmentation, and therefore able to lighten the skin, according to research. It is a synthetic compound that is partially derived from natural lightening compounds found in scotch pine bark, and is considered a reliable whitening agent.
