Organic Sacha Inchi Oil

Add to Personalized Shopping List

Organic Sacha Inchi Oil is pressed from the seeds of the Plukenetia volubilis bush. The plant is native to the tropical rain forests of Central and South America, where it has been cultivated by indigenous people for centuries. The uniquely shaped fruits of this Amazonian wonder are home to seeds that are extraordinarily rich in protein and essential fatty acids. Sacha Inchi Oil contains over 44% Omega-3 essential fatty acids and over 32% Omega-6 essential fatty acids. It is regarded as one of the most concentrated sources of plant-based Omega-3 essential fatty acids available. A rich source of antioxidants and Vitamins A (retinol) and E (alpha-tocopherol), Organic Sacha Inchi Oil is ideal for inclusion in a wide range of personal care formulations.

Our superior quality Organic Sacha Inchi Oil is carefully sourced and packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this remarkably nutritive raw (unrefined), filtered oil.

Customer Testimonial

"Your prices are better on just about everything I need (not everything, but most), and I love that there is no minimum order. I also love the resource of being able to e-mail you and ask questions about the best way to use your products. I'd like to expand into offering all natural body care stuff, but sometimes I have questions. I've been telling anybody who could benefit about this site - it's amazing. Just keep up the good work."
