Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract

Lemon fruit extract is a botanical ingredient derived from the fruit of the lemon tree (Citrus x limon).

Citrus limon is a species of small evergreen citrus tree native to South Asia and cultivated around the world for its tangy fruit. Trees come in several varieties and grow to around 3 meters tall, with thorny branches and sparse foliage. The flesh, juice and rind of the yellow fruit (botanists refer to it as a berry) can all be used for their fragrance and flavour. Many cuisines favour lemon juice and peel for its tart citrus flavour. The flowers, twigs and fruit can be cold-pressed or steam-distilled to produce lemon essential oil. Lemon is known for its high content of vitamin C and citric acid, as well as numerous other phytochemicals.

Lemon fruit extract contains antioxidants such as vitamin C, which can be used in hair care products to help condition hair and protect against free radical damage. Its occlusive properties can help to retain moisture, and it can also contain small amounts of essential oil from the rind, which imparts fresh lemon notes to the fragrance.
