Cucumber Seed Oil, Virgin
CAS No. 70955-25-8 / 89998-01-6
Extracted solely from the seeds of non-GMO cucumbers, this oil is cold pressed and unrefined with a lovely, subtle scent of cucumber. With 60% linoleic acid, and an abundance of oleaic acid, it has refreshing, healing, and astringent properties. Its phytosterols (approximately 4000 - 5000 ppm) aid with the structural and functional integrity of the skin and act as an anti-radical shield. The seeds also contain Phenylalanin, an amino acid that slows down melanin transfer.
