Inci:Actinidia Chinensis Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil

A very beneficial oil for all skin types due to the exceptionally high levels of Omega 3. Light texture with a dry feeling, it sinks into the skin immediately with no greasy film.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A yellow to golden yellow oil with a slight odour obtained from the seeds of the Kiwi fruit.
 
This is 99.5% Kiwi Seed Oil and we have added 0.5% Vitamin E as a powerful antioxidant to keep the oil from oxidising. That Vitamin E has to be diluted in a little Sunflower Seed Oil to make it pourable.
  • Use 1% to 100%. Best when blended with other oils.
  • Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in small amounts in water based gels that will hold it in suspension.
  • Not heat stable so is best used in Stage 3 (cool stage) when making creams and lotions.
Kiwi Seed Oil is excellent in baby products when blended with Rice Bran Oil and Apricot Kernel Oil, as they are all very soft on the skin.
A very useful oil in skincare as it contains extremely high levels of Omega 3 (around 60%).
