Orange Peel Wax

Orange Peel Wax
Orange Peel Wax is an all natural semi-solid wax derived from the rind of the orange. Orange Peel Wax is obtained through physical processing (no chemical reactions or solvent extraction).

The wax in the peel of the fruit protects the fruit against the environment while at the same time allowing the orange to breathe and maintain its essential water balance. This wax offers similar protection to the skin. Orange Peel Wax is an emollient with an excellent skin feel. The phytosterols in Orange Peel Wax are good for skin and can also help to stabilize emulsions. The color and fragrance are distinctive of the fruit.

Orange Peel Wax can be used in skin care balms, ointments, creams, lipsticks as an emollient. Orange Peel Wax offers limited antimicrobial activity and can also serve as an anti-inflammatory agent. In some formulas, Orange Peel Wax can be substituted for lanolin. Orange Peel Wax can also be used in hair care conditioners and styling aids.
