Meadowfoam Seed Oil is derived from the seeds of the Limnanthes alba fields in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Our suppliers grow sustainably on local farms. Abature is confident in our transparent supply chain of meadowfoam seed oil. This natural oil is cold-pressed without the use of harmful solvents or chemicals. With over 98% long-chain beneficial fatty acids, it’s a champion ingredient for any skin care product ideal for providing moisture without a greasy feeling. Meadowfoam seed oil locks in moisture and allows entire formulas to penetrate deep into the dermis. The oil's composition is strikingly similar to that of sebum (aka your skin oils). As far as oils go, meadowfoam seed is one of the most stable. It supports the entire formula from oxidising. Not only does this improve performance, it means you can hold on to your products for an extra three months—and that a longer shelf life translates to less waste and it’s loaded with powerful antioxidants like vitamin C and E. With its high vitamin E content, meadowfoam can rejuvenate skin by tackling degradation and allowing beneficial nutrients to enter deep into the epidermis. As an antioxidant, meadowfoam protects your skin against cellular damage. Myristic acid contained in the oil is anti-inflammatory and soothes irritated skin. A highly renewable, fast growing crop, meadowfoam is able to flourish without toxic pesticides or fertilizers. While grown, birds, insects and small animals eat its nutritious seeds, which can also be used for livestock feed after extraction. The fact that it’s a renewable and beneficial crop eliminates the need to burn the fields in between grass seed plantings, providing farmers with an additional income while benefiting the environment.
