Bilberry Seed Oil
Our organically crafted Bilberry Seed Oil is cold pressed from the seeds of Vaccinium myrtillus, also called European Blueberry and Blue Whortleberry, native to the northern Europe. Bilberry Seed Oil is used in the skincare industry as skin conditioning and anti-aging agent because of its powerful regenerative and restorative qualities.
Bilberries are type of edible wild berries that Bilberries are smaller and darker than their cousin, Blueberries, and have been used for centuries both medicinally and as a food. They are key part of the traditional European medicine and have been widely used for gastrointestinal and vision related problems, as well as diabetes and high cholesterol.
REPORTED BENEFITS AND USES
Bilberry Seed Oil has a high content of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids and powerful antioxidants (in particular anthocyanins). Additionally, Bilberry Seed Oil has an exceptional fatty acid profile with an optimal Omega 3 : Omega 6 ratio - which is extremely helpful when it comes to restoring the lipid barrier of the skin and its integrity. Since the antioxidant content of Vaccinium Myrtillus Seed Oil is very high (especially, tocopherols and carotenoids), when applied to the skin it has the potential to neutralize the free radicals, thus reducing the damage and slowing down the aging process. With its light texture and mild aroma, Bilberry Seed Oil is absorbed into the skin pretty quickly, which makes it ideal for acne prone skin.
Used in haircare, Bilberry Seed Oil conditions and thus contributes softness, shine, and silkiness to dry, damaged, and brittle strands, thereby enhancing the hair's natural gloss and smoothness. It soothes irritation and calms problems of the scalp, especially on scalps that suffer from uncomfortable symptoms associated with dandruff, psoriasis, or eczema.
