Since Grecian times the fruit extract of the Black Elderberry has been praised for its health giving properties; it has been used to treat a variety of ailments including colds, flu, fever and burns. More recent research has discovered that the fruit is rich in anthocyanins, a group of flavonoids that act as natural antioxidants which are believed to help protect cells from free radicals and support the body’s immune system.

Black elderberries have almost 5 times as many anthocyanins as blueberries and twice the overall antioxidant capability of cranberries. Recent clinical studies have demonstrated that elderberry extract may help improve the immune system and reduce the onset of flu symptoms. The byproduct of this nutrient rich extract is the seed, which is the source of the nutrient rich oil.

Elderberry oil is composed of the key fatty acids which support healthy skin condition; in addition it contains elevated levels of natural lipid-soluble antioxidants, making it an excellent choice for skin care formulations.

Elderberry oil has a rich, silky skin feel and is readily absorbed and not too greasy.
Clinical studies demonstrate that elderberry oil provides excellent natural emollience; it increases skin smoothness and elasticity and improves the skin barrier function by reducing trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL).
