Sacha Inchi Oil is particularly nourishing to skin and body where we find many of the oils as supplements high in omega 3 fatty acids. It is prone to oxidation and need to be stored in a cool dark space to extend their shelf life. We recommend keeping in the fridge.
Try using oils like Jojoba oil, Meadowfoam seed oil, & Abyssinian seed oil that have long shelf lives to help stabilize in a formula protecting it from oxidation and rancidity.
I was really happy and surprised to find this oil found in high-end products. I used it in a scalp scrub and facial serum. It has a lovely, rich texture.
Quick and professional service with high quality items. Thank you
