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 have to admit, the products are well packaged, but the adorableness of the little containers makes me go, "awwww," when I start to formulate.

All cute aside, I love LotionCrafter. I can get products here I have a hard time sourcing at rates I'm willing to pay. I don't want to buy huge amounts of anything when I'm making initial formulations. I want to use small amounts to decide if something should be in my line. I can go small, or huge and that makes me feel confident that I can source what I need in amounts I can purchase.

I can get silicones here I can't find anywhere else and I've made my own primer that's head and shoulders above anything else I've ever purchased for any amount of money.

I am in love and I have large orders planned over the next few months. Thank you.

I find Lotioncrafter to be a company that is both very efficient but also very accommodating. What an incredible group of people! It is rare that I see such excellent customer service these days.

My computer chat group of soapmakers began the year after Jen began her supplier career
"Lotioncrafter". We began when only a handful of folks were both selling supplies and only a few were actually making lotion and soap at home. The industry has boomed and it's a testimonial to see Jen's supply business still at the top of the supplier list! So many have come and gone. That is because both her supplies and her technical and customer support is superior to all the rest!
Thank you!
