bitter orangeflower water absolute
During the production of neroli oil by water distillation of flowers from the bitter orange tree, significant amounts of essential oil dissolve in the distillation waters, or form a suspension in this water. It is generally estimated that about 25% of the distillable essential oil in the flowers remains dissolved or dispersed in the distillation waters, while about 75% of the distillable oil separates as Neroli Oil.

Orange blossom water Tunisia
Odor: floral herbaceous and fruity notes
Use: Orange blossom floral water is obtained by distillation of the blossom of the bitter orange, also known as Seville orange. The shrub was imported into the Mediterranean region by the Arabs in the 9th century. This member of the citrus family was originally from Asia. For a long time it was a specialty of Vallauris in France, but today bitter orange blossom comes mainly from Tunisia, the leading producer in the world. This small tree needs good exposure to sunlight and regular watering. Bitter orange is very popular for its fruit, used to produce bitter orange essential oil, but also for its magnificent fleshy white flowers with their intoxicating fragrance. The flowers are clustered in the leaf axils and contain small glands of the characteristic bitter orange blossom fragrance. Orange floral water, also known as a hydrosol, is a co-product of neroli essential oil. The distillate obtained from the flowers is recondensed to produce the celebrated orange blossom floral water. It has a very pronounced floral character due to the presence of linalool, followed by herbaceous and fruity notes. Orange blossom floral water is a popular ingredient in cooking. It is used in many cakes and as a flavoring for fruit salads. Orange blossom floral water also has a number of therapeutic properties, said to be calming and to aid digestion. The fruit of the bitter orange is used to make the famous marmalade, and the orange’s pulp is found in a number of liqueurs, such as Cointreau and Grand Marnier. Bitter orange blossom is very delicate. It is harvested by hand, very early in the morning, when the fragrance is highly concentrated. The flowers must be processed the same day to obtain quality products.

IFRA Critical Effect:Phototoxicity
IFRA fragrance material specification:
 Where the bergapten (5-methoxypsoralen) content of all relevant oils present in a compound has been determined, it is recommended that for applications on areas of skin exposed to sunshine, excluding bath preparations, soaps and other products which are washed off the skin, the total level of bergapten in the consumer products should not exceed 0.0015% (15 ppm). This is equivalent to 0.0075% (75 ppm) in a fragrance compound used at 20% in the consumer product. Where the level of bergapten has not been determined by appropriate methods, the limits specified in the guidelines on individual oils should apply. In those cases, where such oils are used in combination with other phototoxic ingredients, the additive effect has to be taken into consideration and the use levels have to be reduced accordingly. The sum of the concentrations of all phototoxic fragrance ingredients, expressed in % of their recommended maximum level in the consumer product, shall not exceed 100.
