Botanical Name:Carica Papaya
Appearance: Yellow to brown colored powder.
Papaya Powder is gently refreshing with a sweet, summery fragrance. It is excellent for balancing the oiliness of the skin & working as an exfoliant on dry areas. Papaya also is often used in skin care products to give a rejuvenated look to the skin. Papaya contains Vitamin A, which helps to reveal the next layer of the skin and exposes a radiant complexion. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant with wonderful qualities that helps to smooth and soften the skin.
Recommended Usage: The maximum quantity of powdered fruit extract should not exceed 0.5% of the total product, while in tincture form the maximum amount of fruit extract must not exceed 5%. Please be aware that there may be small bits of dark particles in this extract. These particles are part of the papaya fruit that has solidified and they will dissolve in liquid.
Note: The fruit extracts possess all the nutrients and beneficial properties of the fruit, but may or may not have the aroma of the actual fruit. Fruit extracts are meant for adding nourishing properties to the formulation and not for scenting the products.deooragnic.com
MAKE A TINCTURE USING FRUIT EXTRACTS
Fruit extracts are most easily added to formulations by first dissolving the extract in a suitable solvent such as alcohol (vodka or another grain alcohol with less scent), water, glycerin or mixture of solvent (water: alcohol or water: glycerin) and adding this tincture to your product. Not all extracts are completely soluble, so you may see some residue after it has been blended and if necessary, this can be removed using a filter. The MSDS information will indicate if an extract is only partially soluble.
Unlike herbal plant tinctures, there is no need to let the tincture sit and leech out the constituents of the plant material. This has already been done during the extraction process and the aim is to simply liquefy the powder so that it can evenly blend into your product. So once the fruit extract moistened with the solvent, it can be used right away.
Normally, a 100 ml tincture should be equivalent to 20 g of the raw plant. For example, Apple powder has an extract ratio of 12:1 meaning 12 Kg of Apple extract is used to produce 1 Kg of extract. Since you want the 100 mL tincture to contain 20 g of the raw fruit, you should add 1.6 g (refer to the table above) of extract to 100 ml of suitable solvent.
Amount needed for 100 ml Tincture (Alcohol/Water/Glycerine)
Remember that with the tincture, once they are moistened, they must be used right away unless a proper preservative is used.
