Panhandle Goodness::What's In It? Series

Orange Butter

This product is obtain by cold pressing the orange peel, extracting the oil and wax.   Both the natural oil and wax possess outstanding, skin benefits.  The natural oil contains Limonene which is very effective in slowing down the aging process.  The peel's wax contains Bioflavonoids.... Not familiar with those?  Bioflavonoids are found to have anti-cellulite and anti-inflammatory properties.  Eczema, Psoriasis, and dandruff are listed as inflammatory skin diseases.  Check out FitDay for 9 foods high in Bioflavonoids.  I faithfully eat all of those foods, except #5.  Blah.  *Covering mouth, shaking head with eyes closed, like a 5-yo*

Why we use it:

  • High in vitamin C.  Vitamin C firms and strengthens the skin.  Also, it helps the skin to look youthful by combating dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. #AntioxidantPower  Lastly, it's a protective barrier between the skin and the sun, thus suppressing hyperpigmentation.
  • Our Orange Butter contains Palm Oil.  Verrrry effective in treating dark spots due to pregnancy, hormonal changes, aging, and the sun.  Palm Oil is found to be more potent than any form of vitamin E.  It also plays a protective role in cellular aging. 
Limonene + Bioflavonoids + Vitamin C + Palm Oil = One Super Duper Product 

This citrus goodness can be found in our Tantouchthis Spread.

Admittedly, Orange Butter makes my tongue take on a mind of its own.  When I open the container, it takes a good bit of control not to thrust my tongue into it.  The Olfactory and Salivary kick in...... Yes, it smells that scrumptious.  See, more and more I am allowing you to see my silly/quirky side.  I need to stop sharing.....LOL.

It's good to know what's in your stuff, but better yet, why.  Are the ingredients benefiting you or is it just label appeal?!
