Organic sacha inchi oil cold pressed

Gustav Heess

The sun-dried organic Inca nuts are processed into oil by cold pressing.

This is a gentle process to preserve the valuable polyunsaturated fatty acids.

Usage

  • Cosmetics

    In the cosmetics industry it can be used especially for the care of inflammatory and dry skin, as well as dry hair, because it is a slow-spreading oil. It helps in regeneration and contributes to the protection of the natural matrix.

    Despite the high content of unsaturated fatty acids the oil is also fortunately relatively stable against oxidation. This is due to the tocopherol (vitamin E) content, which is also very high and whose antioxidant effect ensures a good shelf life.

     

  • Food

    The range of Sacha Inchi Oil cold pressed organic extends from its use as an edible oil of a special kind for cold cooking, e.g. salad dressings, sauces etc., to its use as a component of functional food. It is excellently suited for omega-3 enrichment in food and meals without negatively influencing shelf life or taste.
