Meadowfoam is a wildflower native to North America. Its name describes a picture of the plant's canopy, at full bloom, of expansive creamy white flowers that look like sea foam on the surf.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil is known to help moisturise dry, sensitive skin and provides exceptional emolliency without giving a greasy feel as it can easily be absorbed by the skin. It can also provide ultraviolet protection making it suitable for sunscreen applications.
Meadowfoam seeds contain up to 30 percent oil which have unique properties that make it the most stable oil around. This superior oxidative stability means that the oil will not deteriorate when exposed to air and can thus be combined with other less stable, high-value carrier oils, such as evening primrose oil, to help extend the shelf life of the end product.
Meadowfoam Oil is most commonly used in body scrubs, hair conditioners, massage oils, moisturisers and much more.
