What does this mean?

Inci:Vaccinium Myrtillus Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil

A oil that is rich in essential fatty acid and phytonutrients. It has a high level of antioxidants, effective in reducing free radical damage.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A clear to dark yellow liquid with a strong odour that can be covered with essential oils if used in an oil only blend. If used in creams and lotions, the strong smell is not so noticable. It is pressed from Blueberry Seeds.

We strongly recommend that you keep this product refrigerated after you receive it.

Use 1% to 100% however, oils rich in Omega 3 can feel very tight on the skin when used neat so we recommend always to blend it with other oils to become even more effective. A great working level that we use is 1% to 5% in creams and lotions and up to 40% is oil based serums.

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.

Blueberry Seed Oil is heat sensitive so must be used in Stage 3 (below 40°C) when making creams and lotions.

Blueberry Seed OIl works very well with any of the CO2 Extracts to super enhance a rejuvenating serum blend.

The oil has 0.5% Vitamin E (Tocopherol) added as an extra antioxidant which will reduce the potential oxidation of the Blueberry Seed Oil whilst it is in the bottle. That Vitamin E is itself in Sunflower Seed Oil to make the tocopherol pourable. This is the only way to ensure you receive a potent product that is still effective.

The Blueberry Seed Oil content is 99.5%.

Historical Information

Studies in the 1990’s showed that Blueberries were one of the richest sources of antioxidant phytonutrients available. These valuable assets were also found in the pressed seed oil as well as the fresh fruits.

In 2012, Blueberries started being classed as a superfood because the antioxidant qualities were higher than other fruits.
