The high fatty acid profile of sesame oil makes it an ideal anti-aging oil. Add sesame oil to body washes, soap bars, lotions, creams and face care products to deliver high levels of anti-oxidants and healing skin benefits.
Many soapers love using Sesame Oil in their soap bars. Our Sesame Oil is refined, not toasted, so it doesn’t the strong sesame smell. When you use Sesame Oil in your soap bars, it increases the moisture properties due to the naturally high levels of fatty acids and gives your soap bars protection capabilities due to the natural anti-oxidants.
