Nourishing Aura Cacia meadowfoam (Limnanthes alba) seed oil offers rejuvenating properties for skin and hair and is often preferred as a stabilizer or carrier oil in essential oil blends due to its long shelf life and resistance to oxidation. This rich, moisturizing oil comes from the seeds of meadowfoam plants, which are cold-pressed to retain all of the skin-nourishing benefits.
Meadowfoam is a flowering plant native to Oregon, California and surrounding Pacific Northwestern areas. The extracted oil is a natural emollient that contains 98-percent long-chain fatty acids — making it one of the richest, most stable vegetable oils produced. It is often used in emulsion-based products for added hydration and moisture.
