Chia Seed Oil
Our organically crafted Chia Seed Oil is cold pressed from the edible seeds of Salvia hispanica, a flowering plant in the mint family (Lamiaceae) native to Central America. Chia seeds are hydrophilic, which means they can easily be mixed with water and can soak up to twelve times their weight in liquid developing a mucilaginous coating that gives chia-based foods and beverages a distinctive gel texture.
Chia Seed Oil also contains high amounts of the skin-loving omega-3 essential fatty acid : Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA). This essential omega-3 fatty acid is known to help build collagen, that soothes, repairs and provides powerful antioxidant protection for mature and aging skin. Chia Seed Oil is also a great source of vitamin B3 and zinc which give oily skin a gorgeous glow. It is also highly prized for its antioxidants, including chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid, as well as myricetin, quercetin, and kaempferol flavonoids.
