Oils are cold pressed, using as little heat as possible for extraction.
The viscosity of oils varies with each type, as does the ease of
absorption into the skin.
What does Cold Pressed mean?
concept of cold-pressing dates back more than 150 years, and is the
most efficient and natural method of extracting oils from seeds. Each
machine contains two screws, which revolve and then literally squeeze
the oil out of the seed at a low temperature. This process creates a
by-product known as meal or cake, which is suitable for use in animal
Benefits of the cold-pressing and filtering process include:
- Oils produced in this way
have a low peroxide value (PV).
- More of the natural
nutrients in the oils, such as essential fatty acids and vitamins, are
- The filtering process will
extract the waxes, remnants of seed husks and other sediments out of the
resulting cold-pressed, filtered oil is beautiful and clear.
