Meadowfoam Seed Oil
Meadowfoam Seed Oil is cold pressed from the tiny seeds of Limnanthes alba, which produces an oil with superb anti-oxidant properties and skin softening benefits.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil is one of the most popular oils in the Aromatherapy Industry due to it's excellent oxidative stability. Thanks to the long chain fatty acid structure of Meadowfoam Seed Oil it delivers good barrier formation and helps to lock fragrance onto the skin while also helping to prevent the rapid absorption of natural creams and lotions that is sometimes perceived as drying.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil is a waxy oil, similar to Jojoba. It's rich texture makes it the perfect choice for salves, balms, and ointments, where it offers substantivity, along with barrier formation, to lock in skins natural moisture to help prevent dryness and soften the skin.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil is so superior as an anti-oxidant that it may be used to extend the shelf life of other more fragile oils and oil blends.
