This amazing oil with a high content of linoleic acid, oleic and alpha-linolenic acid is very popular as an astringent oil and in cosmetic products to improve scars and stretchmarks and to promote wound healing and regenerating tissue and promoting collagen production. Its extraordinary therapeutic properties are due to low contents of trans-retinoic acid. The oil has a low content of tocopherols (390 ppm) and we recommend you add either 0,1% tocopherol or rosemary CO2 extract to ptotect it against oxidation.
Although the fruit contains 20 times as much ascorbic acid (vitamin C) as oranges, the oil does not contain any vitamin C.
