Our very first carrier oil from Ukraine is harvested in the wild from non-war torn areas, and then cold-pressed to yield a nutrient dense oil. We could not pass up this oil for two reasons; firstly, it's a premium quality oil, and secondly, we want to support this producer who literally laid his life on the line to wild harvest the berries in order to make this cold pressed oil. Also known as Black Lilac in Europe, Elderberry is a rare and exalted gem within the beauty industry as both its fruit and seed extracts are used to correct many skin and hair ailments. A fast-absorbing oil to soften, soothe, and protect the skin leaving it deeply moisturized. Mature skin types rejoice from the effects of elderberry oil for its intensive nourishing benefits, guarding against fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. When used in haircare applications, expect exceptionally soft hair and a hydrated scalp without oiliness.
As uncommon as it is to find 100% pure elderberry oil on the market, it’s just as uncommon to find an exceptionally balanced essential fatty profile. Equally rich in all of the major omegas, our elderberry oil contains a high dose of 43% linoleic acid, 33% linolenic acid, and 14% oleic acid. Only a few carrier oils exhibit a wonderful profile as this, thus making it a powerful ingredient within a beauty product formula.
Elderberry oil is a deep golden oil with a soft green tint. Its aroma is mild, and reminiscent of fresh cut grass with a sweet fruity note. Elderberry is considered a lightweight oil with a rich emollience, offering spreadability and instant moisture without heaviness. Elderberry oil fits beautifully into any mature skincare formula, as well as any haircare formula targeting repair and scalp dryness.
