Aroma: Strong earthy herbal; characteristic of unrefined Meadowfoam
Meadowfoam seed oil is amazingly stable, highly emollient, and quickly penetrates the epidermis leaving skin with a silky smooth feel. It is also taken up by hair cuticles to encourage shiny healthy hair when added to hair care products.
There are two types of Meadowfoam oil, this unrefined cold pressed, and our expeller pressed/filtered
. Because this cold pressed oil has a strong aroma we now offer the filtered version for those wanting all the benefits of this oil without aroma. If you are unfamiliar with this cold pressed meadowfoam oil please order a sample first.
The distinctive molecular structure unique to Meadowfoam seed oil in the form of naturally occurring Tocopherols (Vit E) with 98% long chain fatty acids (C20 and C22) containing over 20 carbon atoms make it extremely suitable for cosmetic use in a plethora of skin and hair care formulas. Its ability to prevent loss of moisture renders it a choice ingredient in anti-aging blends. Cold pressed unrefined Meadowfoam Seed oil is highly resistant to heat and oxidation. Consider adding a small amount to other fragile carrier/base oils to help prevent rancidity and extend longevity.
We bottle our Meadowfoam in dark amber glass bottles up to 16 oz size the same way we do for all our fine oils.
