Poppy seed oil, organic

Product-Description of Poppy seed oil, organic

Our supplier for the organic poppy oil is based in Turkey. There, the poppy plants are cultivated organically and the organic poppy oil is produced in food quality. The seeds are rich in fat and are cold-pressed. The machines needed for this must be finely divided and particularly dense in order to be able to capture the small seeds.
Each batch is carefully analysed for pesticides, plasticisers and any morphine content, in accordance with legal requirements. Our organic poppy oil is of food quality and thus meets a very high standard.Originally, the opium poppy Papaver somnifera comes from the Mediterranean region, it belongs to the poppy family and has light, blue or black seeds depending on the variety. The poppy has been known as a cultivated and medicinal plant for thousands of years. Because of the anaesthetic effect of the milky juice in the leaves, stems and capsules - not in the ripe seeds - the poppy has a long history within medicine. In many countries, the cultivation of poppies is therefore strictly regulated. Low-alkaloid poppy varieties are used for the production of food or cosmetics in order to exclude impurities.
We know poppy seeds from desserts and pastries: What would the Germknödel be without the dark poppy seeds? However, the seeds of the poppy plant can not only be used to create tasty foods, but also to produce a cosmetic oil. In English, poppy seed oil is called by the beautiful name "Poppy Seed Oil". It supports the skin barrier and feels pleasantly light on the skin - and is worth discovering for many skin types.
Our Poppy Seed Oil, organic has a light yellowish colour and smells delicately sweet and nutty. It is BIO, COSMOS and KOSHER certified and NATRUE compliant. It can be stored for at least 15 months.

Our organic poppy seed oil has a high content of linoleic acid. It is therefore quickly absorbed into the skin, is not heavy and at the same time supports the skin barrier. Active ingredients can thus be better absorbed by the skin. The fluidising effect of linoleic acid promotes the drainage of the skin sebum, the skin is soothed in case of cornification disorders. Smaller portions of oleic acid and palmitic acid, which are also contained, additionally care for and protect the skin.

Our poppy seed oil is also characterised by its high vitamin E content. The antioxidant helps to protect the skin from damage by free radicals.
