Sunkist citrus

I was just Googling around about citrus (we have a fast-growing plant in our yard that might be a rogue citrus tree/bush/plant) and discovered the following page on the Sunkist website that states
"The fruit's natural wax, removed during the washing phase, is replaced by a food grade, non-animal source wax to restrict moisture loss and extend shelf life"
I've always been annoyed by the waxing of fruit and the fact that most of the time it isn't possible to tell if it's animal or vegetable origin, but apparently for Sunkist it's non-animal, hurray!

Here's the page:
