  Chia Seed CO2 Extract
Salvia hispanica, organically grown seeds, CO2 total extracted in Germany
•Helps Hair and Skin maintain moisture
•Skin smoothing, Prevents dryness
•Helpful for eczema, itching, atopic dermatitis


I have been receiving requests from client to offer this new skincare oil, and finally broke down and requested a sample.

Oh. My. Goodness. is very light, pale gold in color, and it smells...sweet.  Jim thought, "like candy", I thought like a honey-bun.  One of Jim’s staff thought “bake shop”;  someone else said “donuts!”... a sweet, baked goods aroma. Not strong or overwhelming, and it fades from the skin in a few minutes. Now...why use it, why add it to your skincare routine or products?

Chia Seed CO2 Extract is unique among all our carrier oils and extracts since it has the highest concentration of omega-3 linolenic acid available today. Alpha linolenic acid helps skin and hair maintain moisture. In addition to moisturizing, Chia Seed Oil helps skin elasticity and is said to help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Chia Seed Extract’s skin-smoothing characteristics lead to soft, silky, and healthy skin. Chia Seed CO2 Extract can also be used for effective moisturization in hair and scalp formulations. It is also said to prevent drying and scaling.

I think we are going to add some of this luxurious skin smoother to our Cleopatra’s Secret Serum. And I am going to use just a drop of it under my lip gloss. And try adding just a tiny drop to patches of dry, itchy skin. I’m told it is a wonderful cuticle and nail conditioner. Basically, it is said to soften and soothe skin, and prevent “transdermal water loss”...preventing more dryness.

You can use this one, by the drop, all by itself, or add to your favorite body oil or lotion. I have seen recommendations for use from 0.5% to 5%, although I do enjoy a single drop at 100%. A cream containing 4% Chia Seed Oil was found effective in reducing pruritis (itching) and dryness/scaling in a published study. The authors of the study suggest “additional study is also necessary for evaluating the effectiveness of topical application of chia seed oil as an adjuvant therapy for chronic eczematous dermatitis such as atopic dermatitis with pruritus and xerosis (patches of abnormally dry skin).” We are going to add a small bottle of Chia Seed Oil to our Eczema/Psoriasis Sampler Kit and our Dry Skin Sampler.

  • 5 My hair loves this!

    Posted by Dana M from North Carolina on 04/07/2018 Verified Purchase

    I have been using a few drops of this and a bit of Baobob oil, working it into my DRY ends and up the hair shaft, leaving half hour or more before shampooing. It makes my hair feel like silk and it STAYS that way! My ends don’t frizz out! I haven’t found anything to stop frizzing since I moved to the South 10 years ago! I’ve mixed about 15 drops into 2oz shampoo and a bit less into conditioner and it’s brilliant!
    Of course it’s now in my facial blend as well.
    Thank you!!!

  • 5 Chia Seed CO2 extract is good for your hair!

    Posted by Tina from South Dakota on 12/09/2018 Verified Purchase

    Chia Seed CO2 Extract - I got chia seed CO2 extract to use for a hair serum for hair loss. I combine 5 ml chia seed CO2 extract and 5 ml meadowfoam seed oil, add rosemary & cedarwood essential oils, shake well. I massage about 5 ml into my scalp & hair about an hour before I shower & shampoo my hair and cover with a shower cap. After washing my hair, it comes out silky soft and reduces flyaways.
