Thymol is a phenol that is a natural monoterpene derivative of cymene. It is obtained from thyme oil or other volatile oils. Thymol is used as a stabilizer in pharmaceutical preparations and as an antiseptic (antibacterial or antifungal) agent, for example to help reduce and prevent plaque and gingivitis. Thymol also is used in perfumes, food flavorings, pesticides, animal repellents, fungicides/fungistats, medical disinfectants, tuberculocides, virucides, cosmetics, mouthwashes, and in human medicine for topical treatments and for inhalation in respiratory disorders. Oil of thyme and thymol have been proposed for use as a skin penetration enhancer for transdermal drug delivery.
