  • Description

    Eugenol USP is a clear to pale yellow liquid extracted from clove oil by fractional distillation under vacuum. Other sources of eugenol include nutmeg, cinnamon, basil and bay leaf. Clove oil is made up of between 80 to 95 percent eugenol.

You will also find it in products such as mouthwashes, toothpastes, soaps and insect repellents. It is also increasingly used in the animal feed industry as it's proven to improve the immunity in animals including cattle, chickens and pigs.
