ORANGE GROVE INGREDIENTS WE USE
Our bright and fun colours are made using Mica powder. Mica is a natural occurring mineral. These can be naturally mined or created as "nature identical" in a lab. We have chosen to use the nature identical mica as a safe synthetic due to some unethical sourcing of some natural Mica. We also use iron oxides as colour which can also be natural or nature identical.
Behentrimonium Methosulfate / BTMS 25% is a natural, conditioning emulsifier typically used in high quality hair and skin care formulations. BTMS is naturally derived from Colza oil, and is gentle on skin and hair.
Also known as baking soda, and is our main ingredient in our bath bombs. Baking soda will leave your skin feeling silky and relaxed.
Citric acid is the second main ingredient in our bath bombs, and it's what makes the bath bomb fizz once mixed with the baking soda and water. Citric acid occurs naturally in citrus fruits such as lemons and limes.
Also known as sodium hydroxide, and is one of the main ingredients used to create soap. When oils and lye mix a reaction called saponification happens and soap is made.
We are well known for having amazing smelling products. To create our unique blend of scents we use a mixture of essential oils, naturally derived fragrance oils and safe synthetic fragrance oils. All the fragrance oils we use are certified phalate free.Sodium Coco Sulphate
Sodium Coco Sulfate is our milder and safer alternative to SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate). It is a surfactant, and is what creates our rich lather in our shampoo bars. It is derived from coconut.
We use coconut oil in pretty much all our products. Its a fantastic product. Coconut oil is a great natural moisturiser as well as having antimicrobial properties which helps protect skin from harmful bacteria.
Potassium sorbate is a safe preservative that we use in our shampoo bars. It can be naturally derived from fruits such as berries or it can be created "nature identical" in a lab.
We use oatmeal in quite a few of our products and I personally love it.
Oatmeal, an ancient grain, is high in protein and carbohydrates and is packed full of vitamins, minerals, and lipids. A true "feast for the body", these nutrients are not only healthy for your insides but also very beneficial for your skin.
