Organic Virgin Sesame Oil

Add to Personalized Shopping List

Our Organic Virgin Sesame Oil is cold pressed and unrefined. Its light color, mild aroma, stable 1-year shelf life and affordability contributes to its suitability as a wonderful oil for skincare and haircare applications.

Comprised of approximately 15% saturated fatty acids and 42% composition of both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, this ratio makes it a moisturizing oil that also helps to soothe and protect the skin.

Although Organic Virgin Sesame Oil may be used as 100% of the vegetable oil composition of your skincare formulations, it is typically blended with lighter oils to achieve a lighter texture and faster absorption into the skin.

Organic Virgin Sesame Seed Oil is well suited for use as a massage oil, hair oil, bath oil, after-sun care oil and as a base oil for use in preparing herbal oil infusions / macerations.

As with all of our organic ingredients, our Organic Virgin Sesame Oil is certified organic by CCOF, a USDA-accredited certifying agency.

“I've been a FNWL customer for years and the company just gets better and BETTER!”

“I've been a FNWL customer for years and the company just gets better and BETTER! Great customer service, feedback is respected, durable packaging, fast delivery, and high quality, extensive product variety. I'm so glad FNWL exists and pleased that it continues to do well. And I like that it's owned by a family and not a big conglomerate. There are many more companies now than when I first began ordering that provide similar products, but I'm very happy with my sure bet. Everyone whom I've recommended FNWL to has remained repeat customers, too.”
