Harakeke seed oil

Phormium tenax
cold pressed, virgin
100% pure
Origin: New Zealand

Common flax, sometimes referred to as New Zealand hemp (Phormium tenax) is found throughout NZ, especially in wetlands.

Harakeke seed oil is rich in linoleic acid/omega 6 fatty acid (a significant 70+% of the free fatty acid profile) as well having a high loading of oleic acid.
Essential fatty acids have a two-fold benefit for acne. They facilitate healthy cell transfer which helps dissolve the fatty deposits that block pores and cause acne, and they also work to repair the skin damaged by pimples and blemishes.

The oil includes smaller contributions from triacyl-glycerols or diacylglycerols; and is also a significant source of phytosterols and anti-oxidants.
Phytosterols have anti-irritation and anti-inflammatory activity. They help to repair damaged skin and to condition both skin and hair.
Phytosterols will also regulate and normalise turnover of skin cells and improve dry skin by reducing trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). It can also help with skin damage produced by radiotherapy, scars and keloids.

Harakeke seed oil is extracted through pressing or supercritical fluid extraction leaving perfectly intact and unadulterated oil, free of solvents.
