Oranges, who would think an Orange becomes so many useful products? Oranges can become Juicy Fruit, Orange Juice, Sweet Orange Essential Oil, a light weight liquid wax used in polishes, and finally, this cosmetic ingredient of this post, a heavy firm wax that is great in skincare products.

Why Orange Peel Wax?

Our Featured Ingredient of the week, Orange Peel Wax is a semi firm soft orange fruit wax, with a delicious scent of orange. Its extracted from the peel of the orange. Orange Peel Wax keeps the peel and the orange fresh, maintaining essential water balance, resists bacteria and fungus. At the same time, it allows the orange to breath. The peel of the orange is the source of 2 waxes and other natural ingredients. All of those orange peels from orange juice get used in making these fine ingredients.

Orange Peel Wax is an emollient with excellent skin feel. Orange Wax has anti-inflammatory properties, used as a lanolin substitute, is a free radical scavenger, offers mild anti-microbial activity, and is non-phototoxic. Some people are allergic to Wool, because of the lanolin. Thankfully, Orange Peel Wax does not have the allergic response. Orange Peel Wax is vegan. The lambies are safe!! (and cute).

How Soap Alchemy uses Orange Peel Wax

We put it in our Lip Balm and our Cuticle & Callous Cream. Percentage-wise, Orange Peel wax would normally make up 1-5 percent of a formulation. Yet, it is much higher in our Cuticle & Callous Cream. You can apply it directly to your feet for baby soft feet.

Last Notes

Orange Peel Wax, Featured Ingredient of the week, because it is all natural, has a delicious scent and is great in products for your skin, keeping you hydrated and moisturized. Stop in and check out our Lip Balm and Cuticle & Callous Cream.

Tiny Bubbles linked to Pure Olive Oil Found in Soap Alchemy Pure Castile Soaps

Customer used to thick, rich lather from their heavily fragranced bars of commercially processed soaps were slightly alarmed when their usual soaps were replaced with a bar of Soap Alchemy Pure Castile Soap.  Instead of the typical mound of big, fat, fluffy bubbles, of they were accustomed, they were greeted with a smooth layer of tiny bubbles.

They were amazed to discover, however, that when they rinsed, they felt moisturized, refreshed and squeaky clean! It just goes to prove that size really does not matter! Small can be just as good, if not better!  But seriously, the thickness of the lather created is not necessarily a measure of how well it cleans, and this line if Soap Alchemy Soap proves just that!

The Soap Alchemist at Soap Alchemy uses only pure Olive Oil in his Pure Castile Soap Alchemy Soap and offers this great, Vegan Certified formula in two varieties: Unscented and Rose.
