Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Extract

Orange peel extract is a botanical ingredient derived from the peel of the orange (Citrus x aurantium). We use this to add a zesty citrus fragrance to some of our products.

Oranges (Citrus x aurantium) are a group of several species of citrus tree grown around the world for their antioxidant, vitamin C and flavour-rich fruit. There are many varieties of oranges, some known for their bitter fruit, while others are prized for their sweetness. Primarily grown for fresh consumption or use in fruit juices, oranges and orange-derived ingredients are also used in traditional medicines, personal care products and fragrances. Orange peels typically represent 50% of the weight of waste from orange juice production, and different methods can be used to make use of this waste product.

Orange peel extract is produced by drying and grinding the peel into a powder, followed by a process of soaking in alcohol solvents. The remaining extract is rich in antioxidant compounds, and also contains trace amounts of essential oil from the peel, giving it a citrus aroma.
