Bitter Orange (Citrus × aurantium)
Bitter orange has great astringent capabilities. Meaning, it’s able to calm the overproduction of oil on the skin. This balancing effect is perfect for people who are acne-prone or those who suffer from oily skin. Since it’s natural, its astringent capabilities are gentle unlike many other synthetic formulas.
Not only does Bitter Orange reduce the over-secretion of oil, but it’s a great anti-inflammatory and can help to calm redness and irritation.
