Maqui Berry Seed Oil
Our organically crafted, unrefined Maqui Berry Oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the vibrant purple-black berries of Aristotelia chilensis, native to South America in the Valdivian temperate rainforests of Chile. Also popularly known as Chilean Wineberry, these small purple berries have been traditionally used by the Mapuche Indians for its miraculous medicinal properties. Maqui berries are very rich in anthocyanins, which are purple pigments with very high antioxidant activity.
