Sacha Inchi oil is obtained from the organic seeds of the Sacha Inchi plant, which grows in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. It is one of the richest vegetable sources of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), namely Alpha Linolenic Acid (Omega 3), Linolenic Acid (Omega 6), and Oleic Acid (Omega 9). Sacha Inchi oil is extracted at low temperatures through the cold press process, which does not use chemicals or solvents. Its high concentration of Vitamin E preserves the nutritional properties, freshness, and stability of the oil without the need for any additives or preservatives. Sacha Inchi oil is used in formulations meant for mature skin, creams, and lotions due to its exceptionally high antioxidant and skin smoothing properties.
