Organic chia seed oil is an incredible ingredient for use in skincare treatments and recipes. It is the perfect addition to any beauty routine, extracted by cold pressing, this golden-hued oil not only keeps its natural goodness intact but also retains its nutritional content, with benefits for both skin and hair health.
According to a study in 2010 into Chia Seed Oil it was claimed that this oil is “the richest botanical source of 18:3 n-3 fatty acid currently known”.
Rich in omega-3 fatty acids (up to 65%) as well as omega-6 fatty acids (up to 21%), Chia Seed Oil is a powerhouse of nourishment for the skin. Omega 3s have potent anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce inflammation and protect against environmental damage; vitamins A and E offer antioxidant protection while aiding tissue regeneration.
Organic cold pressed Chia Seed Oil is remarkable in that it is considered much more stable than other vegetable oils rich in omega-3 such as flax seed oil – thanks to its natural antioxidant composition. This golden oil can be applied directly onto skin/hair or added to creams, masks and conditioners; its mild scent won’t overpower any other essential oils you may choose to add, making it ideal for adding into customised skin/hair regimes.
Whether you are looking to further nourish already healthy skin/hair or wanting to repair damaged tissue from over exposure to the elements – organic chia seed oil could just be the answer! Give it a try today: trust us – your body will thank you!
