Welcome to the world of Erucic Acid! Organic Cold Processed Broccoli Seed Oil is chock full of Omega 9 Erucic Acid and this specific fatty acid is like a moisture bomb for skin and hair. The biggest skin and hair benefit of omega 9 is that it prevents transepidermal water loss, which means the moisture stays in! So cold weather, desert environments, high heat treatments, etc., won’t pull out the moisture. Imagine the moistness!
Organic Broccoli Seed Oil is a lovely, light yellow to green oil, with a fresh, earthy scent. It is claimed to be a “non-greasy” oil, which means it doesn’t leave that heavy feeling in your products. Organic Broccoli Seed Oil is light and easily absorbed, with high amounts of fatty acids and beneficial vitamins.
You can use Broccoli Seed Oil in your soap bars, shampoo bars, conditioners, body lotions, scrubbing bars, bath soaks, bath bombs, salves, wound creams, lip treatments, under-eye treatments and so much more. It will not discolor nor affect your scent.
If you are looking for a silicone alternative, welcome to Organic Broccoli Seed Oil. This is the ingredient to add to any and all of your hair care formulas to keep them natural and give good glide. Adding Organic Broccoli Seed Oil to your shampoo bars, conditioner bars, and hair oil treatments helps to smooth the hair follicles and leave hair softer. Try a hair treatment oil of Sesame Oil, Organic Argan Oil, Olive Oil Squalane, Organic Black Seed Oil, Daikon Seed Extract, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Organic Broccoli Seed Oil, dl-Panthenol and some Coco Cream Fragrance. This will help nourish hair, control fly-aways, repair split ends and help create stronger hair, and the Coco Cream fragrance will give it the ultimate 80’s hair wiff.
Organic Broccoli Seed Oil has more than just Erucic Acid in it. It also has high levels of Oleic and Linoleic acids, which are powerhouse ingredients for hair and skin. Organic Broccoli Seed Oil has been shown to help reduce inflammation in the skin, which makes it a great addition to products for eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea.
In addition to treating super dry skin, Organic Broccoli Seed oil has high levels of vitamins A, C, K and B, just like the vegetable itself. These vitamin benefits transfer directly to the skin and hair.
Moisture and vitamins are key ingredients for skincare, so don’t just use your Organic Broccoli Seed Oil in shampoo and conditioner. This would make an amazing addition to under-eye creams, facial oil serums, lip balms and lip gloss, cuticle creams, eye make-up removers, and so much more!
Other skincare benefits besides moisture are:
Natural Sun Damage Repair- Organic Broccoli Seed Oil is said to respond differently than traditional free radical fighters. Organic Broccoli Seed oil is absorbed directly into the cells, working inside the cell to fight off damage defend against UV rays.
Natural Retinol- I love the anti-aging benefits of Retinol, but it is too strong to use long-term on skin without a lot of care around other ingredients. Organic Broccoli Seed Oil functions as a natural alternative to Retinol with its high levels of plant-based Vitamin A. Vitamin A helps to decrease appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helps to boost skin’s natural collagen production, and helps to reduce inflammation.
