Our Helio Carrot Root CO2 Total Extract is produced by utilizing CO2 supercritical extraction to naturally extract all of the CO2-soluble lipophilic constituents from the dried roots of Daucus carota, also known as Wild Carrot or Queen Anne's Lace.
Helio Carrot Root CO2 Total Extract is ideally suited for a wide array of nourishing and moisturizing formulations intended for mature, dry, itchy, damaged or severely problematic skin. Unlike typical carrot root infused oils, our Helio Carrot Root CO2 Total Extract is highly concentrated and a little goes a long way. It is well suited for the finest cosmetic, beauty, spa and aromatherapy applications.
After the Helio Carrot Root Total is obtained via supercritical extraction, it is standardized in Jojoba Oil. To help protect this highly nutritive extract, Rosemary Leaf Extract is added at 0.1%.
The composition includes Provitamin A, alpha-cartone, beta-cartone, gamma-cartone, delta-cartone and epsilon-carotene, lycopine, flavones, essential oil and fatty acids. The total cartoene content is between 0.15-0.21%.
It is red in color and possesses a faint, sweet characteristic carrot aroma. It is fluid at room temperature, but does thicken and solidify at cooler temperatures.
