A natural, certified organic oil obtained from the seeds of the sacha inchi plant from Peru.

Said to be a regenerative and antioxidant rich plant oil, containing high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids omega 3 and omega 6, in fact it has an ideal balance of omega 3 and omega 6 (1.4 to 1), most oils have more omega 6 than omega 3. It also contains omega 9 and a high concentration of tocopherols, these nutrients can help even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of scarring, fine lines and wrinkles.

Sacha inchi oil can help regenerate the structure of skin and reduce trans epidermal water loss. It is suitable for sensitive skin and has a low comedogenic rating, which means it won’t clog pores. It can also help balance skin’s natural oil production, making it a great addition to any day time or night-time product.

The oil is extracted without the use of chemicals or solvents at low temperatures preserving the essential fatty acids, vitamins and nutritional properties. The oil is then filtered, leaving a bright golden yellow coloured liquid with a characteristic aroma.
