Chia Seed, Organic CO2 Extract, 5 ml.

$6.35

Origin: Mexico

Super critical or CO2 extraction utilizes a process that leaves no residues or heavy metals.  The oil is extracted by a combination of pressure and liquification.  Then, the pressure is released.

Chia seeds offer a unique source of omega-3 (60%) and omega-6 (15-21%) that is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.  Because chia also has antioxidants, it has a rather long shelf life, at least two years with proper storage.  The oil is liquid at room temperature.

The typical use of chia extractions is as an ingredient in hair care products and moisturizing creams.  It does not clog pores but helps to restore elasticity of the skin, relieve irritation, reduce wrinkles, and mitigate the ravages of aging!

This extract belongs somewhat to the do-it-yourself category.  Normally, you would mix a few drops with a carrier like Almond, Apricot Kernel, or Jojoba Oil.  However, if you have severely irritated skin, think about Tamanu Oil instead.  If your goal is to enhance the soap you are using in a way that gradually improves your skin, try the Black Seed Liquid Soap as a base.  You can also add a few drops to your shampoo, about 1-2 drops per ounce of shampoo.

Contains: CO2 extract of organic Salvia hispanica seeds.
