Product Rating: 4.8/5 (As per 21 Customer Reviews)
Orange Wax is 100% natural and is a by-product of the food industry. It is extracted from orange peels with the use of mechanical presses and is further processed to produce the wax.
INCI: Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Wax.
Appearance: Dark orange liquid to semi-solid wax with a strong orange oil scent.
Uses: Orange Wax is a favourite additive with candle-makers because of its warm scent and colourant properties.
Cosmetic formulators find natural Orange Wax to have excellent emollient properties. Similar to the chemical structure of lanolin in the same way that jojoba is similar to human sebum, it can provide a barrier property in a cream. Orange Wax also possesses preservative properties, and could be used in salves, balms, lotions, creams, lip balms, shampoos, and conditioners, but in small amounts only as this may stain the skin. Because Orange wax is a by-product of the cold-pressed oil, it will likely have some of the oil's photo-sensitizing properties. Hence, it is best to use Orange wax in products such as night creams, so to avoid exposure to sunlight after application.
Please note that though it contains phytosterols that act as co-emulsifiers for stabilizing formulations, and will thicken an emulsified product, of itself Orange Wax will not emulsify a cream or thicken an oil.
Caution: Too much Orange Wax in any formulation may stain the skin. Orange wax has photo-toxic properties and as such sunlight should be avoided immediately after use or sun blocks should be used.
Note: The appearance and scent of this product may vary from batch to batch due to natural ingredients present in this product.

Rating: Lovely orange scent! It does stain the skin so it needs to be used sparingly. Feels amazing on the skin though!

Rating: It took a while to try the orange was, as I couldn't find much information on its use. It is more like a heavy carrier oil and has the most fantastic citrus smell, not so sweet, and not surprisingly lust like orange peel. It's very potent and a few drops in a body butter or lip balm go a long way, adding a vibrant and refreshing note. In fact you have to be careful not to use too much!
I'm looking forward to incorporating this into wood polish, my next project. I have to find uses for it; it's a big bottle and will last forever!

Rating: Smells like the orange skin, fresh.
I tried using this with soy/parafin wax and the wick also from NDA. The orange wax does not burn.
By itself, it's liquid. i mixed about 15-20% of it with soy/parafin wax that's melted and then mix. It harden no problem but the flame is tiny and eventually die in a few minutes.
I've tried doubling up the wick but its flame still die, just taking longer.

Rating: Other then for the smell I don't know how to use that wax. But does it ever smell like orange!!!
By:Manon, Rawdon, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Jun-2011
Rating: Yes, it smells amazing and the cost is so incredibly low! But... I wish the description was clearer about using it in lip balms, you can NOT use it instead of beeswax, maybe as an addition or something because it did not solidify my lip balms at all. Even days later the mixture is still liquid.

Rating: Smells heavenly! Great in Lip balms and body butters. Even the colour can work to your favour.
By:Farkhanda, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Feb-2010
Rating: This is the truest, strongest orange scent you can find. I have to use very little because it easily becomes overpowering. Very useful as a wax too.
