Karanja Oil New at Natural Sourcing

November 4, 2013

Natural Sourcing rolled out karanja oil [INCI: pongamia glabra (karanja) seed oil] within its growing line of specialty oils for use in innovative personal care product formulations. Native to India, karanja oil is pressed from the seeds of the Pongam tree. The Pongam is a fragrant, flowering tree that is considered a cousin to neem.   According to the company, this oil offers an array of similar therapeutic benefits to that of its pungent relative while having a milder, pleasant aroma that is much more versatile for use in cosmeceutical applications. It is ideal for aging skin, lip care, pet care or even insect repellents.
