Citrus Seed Application Increasing in Personal Care and Cosmetics Sector amid Rising Demand for Plant-based Ingredients

The global citrus seed market is forecast to expand at 6.3% CAGR between 2021 and 2031, projects ESOMAR-certified consulting firm Future Market Insights (FMI).

Citrus seed is becoming popular among the vegan population as it is plant based and has high amount of vitamin C and vitamin K, which are immunity boosters. Citrus seed also contains vitamin B12 group and magnesium which help in faster recovery from any infection.

A surge in demand is seen from cosmetic and personal care sector owing to collagen boosting properties of citrus seed extracts and increasing customer preference towards organic and natural skincare products.

Citrus seed is considered a rich source of folic acid and ascorbic acid along with no cholesterol, no sodium and no fat. Such healthy properties of extracts have made citrus seed oil extremely popular among fitness enthusiasts.

According to report published in 2016 by Food and Drug Administration, a GRAS notice was passed stating that glycerin citrus extract is safe for human consumption. Increasing participation among market players towards researching and developing new citrus extracts will further fuel the market growth.

“Research has indicated that the citrus seed oil is beneficial for cardiovascular complications and skin lubrication as it has low sugar and fat content. Increasing demand of citrus seed oil in medication and cooking purpose will give tailwinds to the demand registered in the market,” says the FMI analyst
