Cosmetic & Sport Function
• The Arnica plant is recognised for its anti inflammatory properties, its stimulatory effect on blood circulation and its action against fatigue and muscle pain. This makes it an excellent choice for sports related products
. • The Arnica Oil is made from a cold maceration (flowers steeped in oil for some weeks and stirred during the process) of Organic Arnica flowers in Organic High Oleic Sunflower Oil. Because the high oleic (between 75-90% an Omega 9) content gives this Sunflower Oil the same properties as Sweet Almond oil, this is a long oil, making it very good for long massage strokes used in whole body massage. It is therefore good for enhancing whole body massage oils and generally any products that need good lubrication properties.
• The High Oleic Sunflower is a more stable oil for all types of macerations. Due to its high content of oleic acid, a similar amount as in Olive Oil and Sweet Almond Oil, it is able to withstand heating and does not go easily rancid. • The base oil is also soft and smooth, promoting skin suppleness and gives a warming feeling to the skin. High in calendulin, carotene, waxes, tannins, phosphorous and vitamins A and C.
