  Meadowfoam Seed Oil
Limnanthes alba refined, Canada.


Probably the world's most stable carrier oil. The producer states that in addition to being a wonderfully protective emollient, Meadowfoam Seed Oil can extend the shelf life of more fragile carrier oils such as Borage, Evening Primrose, Rose Hip Seed, Sweet Almond, etc.

Quoted from one producer's website: Meadowfoam Seed Oil's skin feel is distinct from many other natural oils. This is due to the novel chemistry of its fatty acids, which contain more carbon atoms than fatty acids common in edible oils such as soy, almond, sunflower and olive. As a result, Meadowfoam Seed oil provides good emolliency without being overly greasy or unctuous. It is absorbed quickly and leaves a lighter skin feel than many other oils.

When we first experienced this odorless carrier oil we thought it was too heavy and thick for skincare use. However it absorbs very quickly and leaves the skin feeling velvety soft. We think it will make a great base for a hand or body oil blend, as well as providing additional shelf life to your precious handcrafted creams and lotions. Its high tolerance for heat makes it the oil of choice for toiletry creations.

  • 5 Meadowfoam seed oil - good stuff

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

    Meadowfoam seed oil - I got meadowfoam seed oil to use for a hair serum for hair loss. I combine 5 ml meadowfoam seed oil and chia seed CO2 extract, add rosemary & cedarwood essential oils, shake well. I massage about 5 ml into my scalp and 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. Love it
