Amaranth is one of the oldest plants cultivated and eaten by humans and the reason is the nutrients it contains. It is rich in fatty acids, fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals.
Amaranth Oil is a very nourishing and hydrating oil which contains a lot of natural tocopherol (Vitamin E). Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that help block free radicals which can lead to premature aging.
Amaranth Oil is unique due to its high squalane content which is between 6 – 12 % (one of the highest plant based source of squalane). Squalane is a lipid that is part of the sebum and is able to deeply penetrate the skin and help with moisture loss.
The oil is also high in Linoleic Acid and phytosterols which have anti-inflammatory properties and are good for all kinds of skin irritation and inflammation.
As one of my miracle ingredients Amaranth Extract is the ingredient in most Facial Oils.
