Black Currant Seed Oil Organic
Black Currant Seed Oil Organic
Black Currant Seed Oil Organic

Master plant: Ribes nigrum L.
Grossulariaceae (Currant/Gooseberry family)
Oleum ribes nigra

Origin:

The Black Currant has been cultivated since the Middle Ages in Central Europe and Western Europe. The juice of the black currant is high in vitamins C and A. The cold-pressed or CO2 extracted Black Currant seed oil is from controlled organic agriculture.

Characteristics and substances:

The Black Currant seed oil is one of the most valuable seed oils.
Black currant seed oil is a yellow to dark green oil with fruity aroma and taste. The oil contains more than 70% of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Especially the amount of alpha and gamma-linolenic acid (18-20%) is extremely high - more than three times as high as black cumin seed oil.
Black currant seed oil also contains natural tocopherols (alpha & gamma) and bioactive substances like flavonoids.

Applications:

Black currant seed oil is a biological raw product which finds use as an edible oil as well as as a special oil in natural cosmetics. Because of its high amount of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), the Black Currant seed oil is often used with dry skin.
The body is unable to produce GLA and therefore must be supplied with foods containing gamma-linoleinic acid. GLA serves in the body as a component of prostaglandin biosynthesis.
