Meadowfoam seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the Meadowfoam plant, also known as the poached egg plant because of it's white and yellow flowers. It has an extremely long shelf life due to it's naturally occurring tocopherols and the absence of oxidatively susceptible polyunsaturated fatty acids, and as a result it has been known to extend the shelf life of less stable ingredients. Meadowfoam seed oil is a great, versatile oil with impressive moisturising and rejuvenating properties. It is also commonly used in sun lotions as it can withstand high temperatures and oxidation. It's easily absorbed by the skin, doesn't leave a greasy feeling, and spreads easily over the skin surface which makes it an amazing addition to massage oils.
