Blood Orange Extract
What Is Citrus sinensis (Blood Orange) Extract?
Citrus sinensis (blood orange) extract is derived from a type of orange that contains high levels of anthocyanins, which give it a deep, red color. Sicilian farmers began cultivating these oranges hundreds of years ago along the slopes of the Mount Etna volcano, and they remained popular for hundreds of years throughout Spain and Italy. Through a unique ecological combination of the area’s coastal breezes, nutrient-rich volcanic soil, and warm sun, the blood orange is loaded with a unique mix of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
