The seeds of Daucus carota var. Sativa (also known as Wild Carrot or Queen Anne's Lace) are responsible for producing a remarkably nourishing and restorative oil ideally suited for a wide array of moisturizing and anti-aging formulations.
Although their names are similar, Carrot Seed Oil is not pressed from the orange root vegetable that we commonly call a carrot.
Unlike many carrot seed oils that are derived by macerating carrot seeds in sunflower or another vegetable oil, our Carrot Seed Oil is a true, 100% pure cold pressed oil.
Our superior quality, unrefined, extra virgin Carrot Seed Oil is carefully sourced and packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this remarkably nutritive, cold pressed oil.
