Description: Hibiscus Carrier Oil is obtained from the seeds of the Hibiscus sabdariffa, an annual, herbaceous shrub native to South East Asia. It belongs to Malvaceae family and is commonly known as "red sorrel" or "roselle". It grows up to 6-8 feet, has bright red stems, with green leaves accented by red veins. It bears white to pale yellow flowers with a dark red spot at the base of the petals, which is a typical characteristic of a Hibiscus flower. The seeds are extracted when the fleshy and bright red fruit matures, and the seed capsule turns brown and splits open.
Color: Pale yellow to golden yellow liquid.
Aromatic Description: Mild nutty aroma.
Common Uses: Hibiscus seeds contain a naturally gentle form of alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) and a high concentration of Omega-6 Linoleic Acid which helps to keep the skin moisturized and is ideal for soothing dry skin, flaky, and acne-prone skin. Hibiscus Oil is also rich in flavonoids, carotenoids, and tannins which make it an effective antioxidant that protects the skin against environmental elements. Hibiscus Oil is a versatile oil with a pleasant texture that leaves a silky feel on the skin. It helps maintain radiant skin and healthy-looking hair. It is well suitable for use in a wide range of personal care applications intended to soothe sensitive or aging skin. Hibiscus Carrier Oil is perfect for skin care and hair care formulations where emollience and deep moisturization are desired.
