Organic Virgin Sacha Inchi oil is rich in naturally occurring fatty acids, making it an excellent addition to any skin or hair care routine. It is actually considered to be the highest plant-based source of essential fatty acids. Sacha Inchi Oil works to increase lipid barrier in the skin, improving hydration and elasticity. In the hair, it helps to repair damaged hair, stimulate hair growth, and increase shine.
Sacha Inchi Oil has been used for centuries both internally and topically. When taken internally, Sacha Inchi oil has said to help reduce cholesterol levels, treat rheumatic pain, reduces risk of heart disease and reducing inflammation. The Organic Sacha Inchi Oil we carry is food grade, however we are not a food or supplement facility so we do not market our products as such.
When used on skin and hair, Organic Virgin Sacha Inchi Oil can have incredible restorative functions. One primary skin benefit is the reduction of inflammation. Sacha Inchi oil is very lightweight and considered non-comedogenic, so all skin types can use it. It does not leave a heavy or greasy feel on the skin, even though it does increase the overall hydration of the skin. Sach Inchi is high in naturally occurring omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Omega fats work so great on the skin because they prevent water-loss, increase hydration levels, and encourage cellular repair.
Organic Sacha Inchi Oil should also be incorporated into any repair product designed to help combat sun damage. The incredible fatty acid profile in Sacha Inchi oil works to fight free radicals on the skin, protect the lipid barrier, and boost hydration, all things that happen with repeated sun exposure.
The same benefits can be felt on the hair. Hair gets extremely damaged from both environmental factors and the physical damage we inflict on our hair. Incorporating Sacha Inchi into scalp and hair care products can help boost moisture in hair and can help encourage a healthier scalp, enabling new hair to grow. Sacha Inchi is also said to help stimulate hair growth.
