Chia Essential Oil (Salvia hispanica)


Chia may also be referred to as Mexican chia or Spanish sage. It is typically processed using steam or hydro distillation, or co2 select extraction as a method for extracting oil from the seeds.


CO2 extracts have unique chemical properties and distinct aromas. CO2 Select extracts are similar to essential oils but usually are much thicker in viscosity. CO2 Totals are very thick.

With its extraordinary composition of essential fatty acids and tocopherols, Organic Chia Seed CO2 Total Extract is a remarkable ingredient for helping to address the concerns associated with the appearance of maturing skin and the challenges associated with a wide array of problematic skin and hair care concerns. It is well suited for applications intended to support delicate facial skin. It helps to soothe skin irritation, minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, does not clog the pores and is an excellent choice for oily skin.
