Global Citrus Fiber Market: Growth Drivers

  • Majority of key players operating in the citrus fiber market is emphasizing maintaining a strong focus on ingredient innovation for wider cosmetic and personal care applications to fulfill the increasing consumer demand for nature-derived beauty products.
