Zero waste oils are carrier oils expressed from fruit and vegetable seeds, which are sourced as waste by-products from the juice, jam and jelly industry.
Strawberry seed oil is an iconic example of a zero waste oil, where the seeds are collected directly from jam/juice producers, dried and then sent for processing. The seeds are sieve filtered before processing, then cold pressed and then finally filtered again through a filter press to create a fresh, light, fruity oil, high in antioxidants.
