Our Poppy Seed Oil from Papaver somniferum is first organically grown in Turkey, and then organically cold-pressed in Hungary to yield a virgin, pure Poppy seed oil. The aroma is mostly bland with a faint nuttiness that becomes undetectable on the dry down. Poppy Seed oil is remarkably rich in linoleic acid (71%) which gives it a highly moisturizing feel that fully absorbs, which is ideal for all skin types even oily and sensitive. Mature and dry skin types will appreciate Poppy Seed Oil’s ability to reduce trans-epidermal water loss, which locks in moisture and prevents it from evaporating. Naturally occurring plant phytosterols coupled with a generous amount of antioxidant Vitamin E, makes Poppy Seed oil an ideal component to restore skin’s moisture barrier and to prevent inflammation and dehydration. It has also been shown to revitalize dull, lackluster skin by improving elasticity and cellular regeneration. Despite the intense moisture that Poppy Seed oil provides, it has a light texture and silky finish. Poppy Seed oil makes a superb ingredient for a cream or balm to soothe and calm dry, damaged skin and lips without heaviness.
Poppy seed oil is well known for haircare as much as skincare. The natural emollience of Poppy Seed oil softens and conditions unruly strands of hair whilst retaining moisture and revitalizing hair health — all with a non-greasy brilliance. The large amount of Linoleic acid (Omega-6), with moderate amount of Oleic acid (Omega-9) and Palmitic acids provide an suitable composition for an excellent hair mask or leave-in treatment.
