Chia Seed Oil is cold pressed from the seeds and has undergone extensive testing to ensure its high quality. Chia Seed Oil has a light consistency and a subtle nutty aroma.
These tiny black seeds are one of the healthiest foods on the planet. They are loaded with antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids that fight ageing, soothe inflammation, reduce acne scars and keep skin radiant and healthy.
Omega-3 is a natural part of our skin barrier and helps to lock moisture in and keep irritants out. Our bodies don't produce Omega-3, so topical treatments such as Chia Seed Oil can assist in keeping the skin barrier healthy. Chia Seed Oil is also high in Omega-6 (linoleic acid) which can have anti-inflammatory effects. It also contains antioxidants that can keep skin looking healthy.
