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.


Uses:

Organic Sacha Inchi Oil easily penetrates the skin and is highly moisturizing. It is rich in tocopherols (Vitamin E) and other antioxidants. Sacha Inchi Oil possesses a unique balance of Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids not found in other vegetable oils. It can aid in the relief of itchy, scaly, irritated skin. It contains Vitamin A, is a natural anti-oxidant, restores moisture balance, improves the complexion and reduces the appearance of tiny age lines.
