We manufacture our essential waters, such as our Mandarin Red EO Water, with the formulator in mind. Purposefully designed as an unfinished product, EO waters act as a scented ingredient to add soaps, lotions, or other cosmetic recipes.
For the most part, our essential waters are clear to nearly transparent, which is a benefit for those recipes where your finished product needs that type of presentation.
Customers often ask us the difference between our essential waters and our hydrosol waters. Here’s the breakdown:
- Compared to the shelf life of hydrosol waters, EO Waters hold a slightly longer shelf life.
- EO Waters are significantly cheaper per pound than hydrosol waters.
- The scent of essential oil often smells truer in EO Waters than hydrosol waters.
- EO Waters are not a finished product. They are concentrated and should be diluted into formulations. Hydrosol waters are mild and can be applied directly to the skin.
- Hydrosol waters are organically certified, whereas our EO waters are not.
- EO Waters are not steam distilled, but hydrosol waters are.
Mandarin Red EO Water smells of fresh mandarin oranges – very similar to sweet orange but with a hint more sweetness. It is uplifting and makes a great scent in lotion or body washes. Since mandarins are of the citrus fruit family, they are also cleansing and anti-bacterial.
INCI: water, decyl glucoside, (and) Citrus reticulata (mandarin red) essential oil
External Use Only.
