Meadowfoam Seed Oil’s skin feel is distinct from many other natural oils. This is due to its composition of fatty acids, which contain more carbon atoms than fatty acids common in edible oils such as soy, almond, sunflower, and olive. It is also one of the most stable lipids known for naturally occurring tocopherols and the absence of oxidatively susceptible polyunsaturated fatty acids common in other oils. The high level of oxidative stability means Meadowfoam Seed Oil is less likely to go rancid, even when handled at high temperatures and in the presence of oxygen and other conditions that cause other natural oils to degrade.

Common Uses: Meadowfoam Seed Oil is prized for its exceptional oxidative stability and functionality in a wide range of cosmetic and personal care formulations. It is a preferred oil used in topical applications due to its emollient properties and non-greasy feel on the skin, similar to jojoba oil. It also blends very well with other carrier oils to allow for easier formulation. Meadowfoam seed oil is known to be very stable and resistant to rancidity due to its composition of over 98% long-chain fatty acids.
