Phenethyl Alcohol (PEA) is an aromatic alcohol that is used as a fragrance and an antimicrobial preservative in cosmetic formulations. PEA is metabolized to phenyl-acetic acid in mammals. In humans, it is excreted in urine as the conjugate phenylacetylglutamine. The acute oral LD50s of PEA to rats ranged from 2.5 to 3.1 ml/kg, and for mice and guinea pigs was 0.8 to 1.5 g/kg and 0.4 to 0.8 g/kg, respectively. The dermal LD50s for rabbits and guinea pigs were 0.8 g/kg and 5 g/kg, respectively… Expand

Food flavourings and compounds of related structure I. Acute oral toxicity
TLDR
Oral dosages of 107 synthetic and natural flavourings and structurally-related compounds were administered by intubation to the mouse, rat or guinea-pig and the acute oral LD 50 of each compound was determined. Expand
Disposition of topically applied sodium cromoglycate in the albino rabbit eye
TLDR
Tissue uptake was found to be greatest in the conjunctiva, followed by the cornea, the iris‐ciliary body and the aqueous humor, indicating improved drug delivery to these sites, and the addition of 5% PVA produced an elevation in thepeak concentration of sodium cromoglycate and an increase in the time at which the peak concentration was achieved.

Abstract β-Phenylethyl alcohol appears to be nonirritating to the rabbit eye when used in a three tenths per cent aqueous solution and the pure chemical has a low oral toxicity in rats.

Vapour and liquid diffusion of model penetrants through human skin; correlation with thermodynamic activity
TLDR
Investigating vapour and liquid permeation through human skin of model penetrants benzyl alcohol, benzaldehyde, aniline, anisole and 2−phenylethanol applied in model vehicles found that liquid fluxes were membrane controlled, whereas an interfacial effect probably contributed to low vapour permeation.
