The Benefits of Meadowfoam Seed Oil

Meadowfoam Oil is pressed from the seeds of Meadowfoam (Limnanthes alba), a plant which received its name because of its resemblance while in bloom to the white foam blowing on the ocean. Meadowfoam is native to northern California, southern Oregon, Vancouver Island, and British Columbia. It has proven to be invaluable in the body care and cosmetic industries, and is also being studied for pharmaceutical and industrial use.

Meadowfoam oil contains over 98% long-chain fatty acids, and also has higher quality triglyceride levels when compared to other vegetable oils. In addition, it has three long chain fatty acids that were previously unknown before its discovery. It also has amazing moisturizing and rejuvenating capabilities, is very stable, and may be utilized for many different purposes.

It is widely used in cosmetic and hair care products because it is moisturizing, extremely stable, and capable of adhering and staying on the skin. When applied to the skin, it forms a moisture barrier and will assist the skin with preventing moisture loss.

Meadowfoam oil has these beneficial characteristics:

  • Moisturizes the skin
  • Rejuvenates and adds shine to hair
  • Ultra-violet protection (sunscreen applications)
  • Non-greasy feeling, soaks into the skin easily
  • Reduces wrinkles and signs of aging
  • Adheres well to the skin

We have two products with Meadowfoam seed oil as an ingredient:

Our Potent Green Face Serum and Natural Potent Green Body Moisture Oil.

The Benefits of Carrot Seed Oil

carrot-seed
Carrot seed oil is steam distilled from the dried fruit (seeds). Carrot root oil is obtained by solvent extraction of the red carrot (root) and contains high levels of carotenes.

Respected aromatherapy references suggest that it is useful for the treatment of dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, wrinkles, and that it aids dry skin and revitalises the basal layer.

This oil is a true powerhouse in the anti-aging category! Carrot Seed oil is rich in Vitamins A, B, C, D and E. Vitamins A, C and E all are anti-oxidants that reduce free radicals (from sun damage, environmental toxins) associated with premature aging. Vitamin C also plays a role in stabilizing collagen to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Both Vitamins E and B improve moisture for increased elasticity and smoothness. With these rich properties, Carrot Seed oil stimulates cell growth, moisturizes, tones and increases the skins elasticity.

Carrot Seed oil also is used in hair care as it conditions hair and stimulates growth.

Normal to Dry Face Serum, Mature Face Serum, Potent Green Face Serum and Hair Serum.
