Kiwi seed oil (or kiwifruit seed oil) contains around 60% alpha linolenic acid (ALA) as well as being a rich source of Vitamin C and Vitamin E. The high concentrations of alpha linolenic acid (Omega-3) make it the perfect ingredient for natural skin care products, by helping to maintain moisture in the skin and hair, thus preventing drying and scaling of the hair and skin.
It is good for treating sensitive skin, oily skin, acne, psoriasis and eczema.
It is quite a dry oil so is quickly absorbed by the skin leaving no residue, therefore is a good facial oil.
All our products are for external use.
