Citrus Aurantium Dulcis
Citrus aurantium dulcis, also known as bitter orange or Seville orange, is a hybrid of the pomelo and mandarin, and is often used for its essential oil. In its raw form as well as its essential oil form, it can be found in various foods as well as medicinal applications. This is because it has an intense (and delicious) orange flavor, but also is power-packed with nutrients. It is rich in vitamin A and C, flavonoids and antioxidants that work well with our skin when combined in certain formulas. As it applies to skin, citrus aurantium dulcis has two primary benefits. First, its antiseptic and antibacterial properties help fight skin blemishes and acne conditions by helping clear away excess oil and debris. Second, it also works to condition the skin and infuse it with antioxidants.
