Organic Sacha Inchi Oil easily penetrates the skin and is highly moisturizing. It is rich in tocopherols (Vitamin E) and other antioxidants. Sacha Inchi Oil possesses a unique balance of Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids not found in other vegetable oils. It can aid in the relief of itchy, scaly, irritated skin. Containing Vitamin A, Sacha Inchi is a good choice for inclusion within blends intended for acne or blemished skin. It is a natural anti-oxidant, restores moisture balance, improves the complexion and reduces the appearance of tiny age lines. It is also a choice ingredient for inclusion in hair care formulations intended to heal, strengthen and moisturize the hair and scalp.

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 it has been cultivated by indigenous people for centuries. The uniquely shaped fruits of this Amazonian wonder are home to seeds that are extraordinarily rich in protein and essential fatty acids. Sacha Inchi Oil contains over 47% Omega-3 essential fatty acids and over 38% Omega-6 essential fatty acids. It is regarded as one of the most concentrated sources of plant-based Omega-3 essential fatty acids available. A rich source of antioxidants and Vitamins A (retinol) and E (alpha-tocopherol), Organic Sacha Inchi Oil is ideal for inclusion in a wide range of personal care formulations.

Comments: I make a day serum for my face. This oil is one of the main ingredients and it is wonderful. Its a tiny bit heavy at first but melts into the skin quickly and moisturizes beautifully.
