Cresylic acid [ CAS 1319-77-3 ], also known as tricresol or simply, cresol, refers to a number of blends of three cresols (o-cresol, m-cresol, and p-cresol) and phenols, chemicals derived from coal tar, petroleum and wood tar. This chemical has applications as a disinfectant, antiseptic, fungicide and preservativeFor example, it is used to make carbolic soap, which functions as a cleaning agent, detergent, limited-use deodorant, and insect and deer repellent. 

Cresylic acid appears as an amber-red liquid with a medicinal odor, congealing at 32-35 degrees Celsius into a crystalline solid. Cresylic acid is a known irritant and toxic in high concentrations, requiring strict adherence to safety standards in packaging and transport.
