Natural orange powder is commonly used in production of handmade soap, shampoo, bath bombs, face masks and scrubs. This US sourced all natural vegetable based fruit powder produces a natural pale to deep yellow color, natural orange peel aroma and serves as an mild exfoliate due to the light grit of the finely textured granules.
Orange peel powder is rich in vitamin C and other fruit acids that are thought to benefit skin by increasing the production of collagen and stimulating circulation. Listing is for 2 oz by weight measure, approximate dry measure is 0.44 cups (7 tablespoons).
General guidelines for use are 1/2% - 3% of total formulation. We use in soap by blending with an equal portion of carrier oil to make a thin paste, then blending thoroughly to the batch. Add at the end of your process to avoid cooking the fruit. Color may migrate producing unique speckles that will fade in shade with time.
IMPORTANT Cold and hot process soap makers should expect end results of shades ranging from pale to deep yellow depending on the base and fragrance oils used. Melt and pour soap colors will range from deep yellow to orange. Your base and essential or fragrance oils will impact the end result color.
