In cosmetic preparations, Biochemica® Orange Butter provides a clean and refreshing scent and exhibits excellent spreadability on the skin, making it ideal as a massage butter or as a carrier for treatment products. It adds moisturizing attributes to creams, lotions and bar soaps and may be used in cosmetics, toiletries, soaps, massage oils and balms, hair care and sun care preparations.
