    I am wondering if Benzoin Absolute would be ok to use in shave soap made with tallow, would it help with preserving as well?

    Hi Brenda
    Indeed it would and as it is a brown like color may discolor your soap. Usually tallow soap does not need preserving however the benzoin does also lend to preserving.
