Chia Seed Oil
CAS No: 93384-40-0

Our Chia Seed Oil is a cold pressed, filtered, organic oil with a moderately rich skin feel in anhydrous and emulsified products. It is well balanced between Omega-3 (alpha-linolenic) and Omega 6 (linoleic) fatty acids at a 3:1 ratio. It typically contains more than  50% alpha linolenic acid, a skin conditioning and restorative fatty acid that helps speed up skin’s barrier repair mechanisms, reduce transepidermal water loss, and reduce scaling and dryness for all skin types. It’s high in phytosterols, which reduce inflammation and itching while increasing moisturizing. The polyphenols in Chia Seed Oil act as anti-inflammatories and cell regenerators that can reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. In hair care products, phytosterols soften the hair strand and reduce static, resulting in fewer fly-aways.

Chia Seed Oil is an oil soluble ingredient that is incorporated into any anhydrous product or in emulsified products, like lotions, in the oil phase. It has a pale to medium yellow color, and a nutty taste and odor that may be slightly noticeable in a finished product depending upon percentage used.

Chia Seed Oil has a shelf life of 1 year. It is stored and shipped under an inert argon gas blanket. Once opened, Chia Seed Oil should be kept under refrigeration for long term storage.

Our Customers Say...
I placed an order less than an hour ago,(a Monday morning) and just received an e-mail notice that my package is on the way, will be here in northern CA in 2 days regular UPS!

Thanks, Jenny!
Janey Davies, (Scrubology Soap)

This is by far the most comprehensive and technologically advanced site I have visited. I am very impressed by your product availability and ease of using your website. Can't wait to receive my first order and look forward to working with you in the future.
Janet Fikany, (JanetLand Delectables)

I ordered some of the Shea Nilotica from LC and it's been sitting in my supply area for a few weeks because my household has been so busy. I am just now getting around to trying it for the 1st time and let me just say...WOW!! I am head over heels in LOOOVE with the Shea Nilotica. I've used other re-fined and unrefined she butters but this is by far superior. I can't believe how creamy it is and how satiny my skin feels. Right after I used a little I slathered some on my 3 yr old! Oh how happy I am that I ordered the 5 pound bag rather than just a sample size after I called Jen to inquire about it. LC rocks!

I just wanted to say how much I am liking my new Borosilicate Beaker, 2000ml & the large wire whip.
The wire whip is the best quality wire whip I have ever had..
I now want them all..

LotionCrafter is hands-down the best DIY cosmetic ingredient supplier in the market! They were the first merchant I tried when I ventured into DIY formulating, and they still remain my favorite today! Absolutely no one can beat their superior inventory of products - difficult to find functionals, antioxidants, rare actives, emollients/humectants for every skin type, copycat formula recipes of prestige cosmetics, etc - and their prices are so affordable! I love that they offer smaller sizes to allow trial. I also find the "how-to" information/details they provide on each product to be extremely thorough and helpful (such a valuable thing for newbies like me). And the staff is always polite to respond via email with specific formulating/questions. Love love love!
