The seeds of Daucus carota sativa (also known as Wild Carrot or Queen Anne’s Lace) are responsible for producing a remarkably nourishing and rejuvenating oil ideally suited for the finest moisturizers and personal care applications.
Although their names are similar, Virgin Carrot Seed Oil is not pressed from the orange root vegetable that we commonly call a carrot.
This beautiful virgin cold pressed oil should not be confused with steam distilled carrot seed essential oils or macerated (infused) carrot seed oils. Unlike many carrot seed oils that are derived by macerating carrot seeds in sunflower or another vegetable oil, our Virgin Carrot Seed Oil is a true, 100% pure cold pressed oil.
Our superior quality Virgin Carrot Seed Oil is carefully sourced and packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this remarkably nutritive oil.
