Production & description

Sacha Inchi Oil is the oil obtained by cold expression from the seeds of the Inca Peanut (Plukenetia Volubilis L.) growing in the Amazon region.

Sacha Inchi oil cold pressed is a yellow to greenish liquid with characteristic odour and taste. Very slightly soluble in alcohol, miscible with light petroleum.

Gustav Heess

The Inca nuts dried in the sun are processed into oil by cold pressing.

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


  • Cosmetics

    In the cosmetics industry Sacha Inchi oil 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

    Its range of application extends from its use as a special kind of edible oil for cold dishes, 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.
