naturally derived a light clear liquid. Weve found it useful with a SLIGHT strawberry odour in a number of products weve blended.This Essence aka Distillate Water is the aromatic water recovered at the preheater stage of the evaporator during the fruit juice concentration process. Capturing the volatile aromas and flavors of fresh fruits. All Fruit Essences contain a varying percentage of naturally occurring alcohol, due to the fruit juice concentration process. This is not enough, however, to adequately preserve them. They have been preserved for cosmetic use with Cosmocil CQ, a mild, cationic preservative. Due to the cationic nature of this preservative, there may be some incompatibilities with strongly anionic ingredients.
Fruit Essences can be used directly on the skin. They can also be used as part or all of the water phase for nonionic or cationic creams and lotions, as well as in room and body sprays.
