Concord Grape Fruit Essence
Concord Grape Fruit Essence (aka Distillate Water) is the highly aromatic water recovered at the pre-heater stage of the evaporator during the fruit juice concentration process. Capturing the volatile aromas and flavors of fresh fruits, our Fruit Essences will make your summer body spritzers sing!
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 Leucidal Liquid, a mild preservative.
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. They are for external use only.
