Natural Sourcing Adds On to Organic Oils

February 13, 2014

Brazil nut, sacha inchi now available.

Organic Brazil Nut Oil is a sought-after ingredient for spa, cosmetic and personal care formulations. According to supplier Natural Sourcing, its nourishing, deeply hydrating nutrient profile—which includes fat-soluble vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids—is ideal for a wide range of applications.

At Natural Sourcing, this oil is cold pressed from the nuts of the Brazil nut tree and then meticulously packaged and stored to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties, it contends. The nut oil is rich in nutrients, including vitamins A (retinol), B, C and E.

Due to its rapid absorption by the skin, it is especially suited for use in anti-aging creams, dry skin formulations, sensitive skin care, dry/damaged hair products, and lip balms.

The company also recently rolled out a sacha inchi oil, one of the most concentrated sources of plant-based Omega 3 essential fatty acids available, it says.

Organic Sacha Inchi Oil is pressed from the seeds of the Plukenetia Volubilis bush. The plant is native to the tropical rain forests of Central and South America, where indigenous people have cultivated it for centuries. It is especially suited for use in anti-aging creams, dry skin formulations, sensitive skin care, acne treatments, dry/damaged hair and scalp products, and nail and lip care.
