Organic Chia Seed Oil

by Travis Gerhart
Organic Chia Seed Oil

Chia seed oil is made from the seeds of the desert plant (Salvia hispanica), which is native to Mexico and Guatemala and a member of the mint family. The oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, especially alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), and contains antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients.

Chia seed oil is commonly used as a dietary supplement, added to smoothies and other foods, or used as a base for salad dressings and marinades. It is also used in some personal care products due to its moisturizing properties.

The use of chia seed oil for skin health is relatively new. Still, the plant has a long history of use in traditional medicine. In recent years, the popularity of chia seeds as a health food has led to increased interest in chia seed oil, including its potential benefits for skin health. The oil is now commonly used as an ingredient in skincare products. It is said to have several benefits, including hydration, antioxidant protection, anti-aging, and improved skin texture.


Chia seed oil is gaining popularity as a natural ingredient for skin health due to its high content of antioxidants and essential fatty acids. These nutrients work together to nourish the skin, protect it from damage, and improve its overall appearance. Chia seed oil is easily absorbed into the skin, providing hydration and promoting a healthy glow. In addition to its moisturizing benefits, chia seed oil has been shown to help reduce the signs of aging and improve skin elasticity.

With its natural, nourishing properties, Chia seed oil is an excellent choice for those looking to enhance their skincare routine with a natural, effective ingredient with an array of skin health benefits.

Dense Chia (Salvia hispanica) seeds gathered following harvest. 

Chia seed oil is widely cultivated in Latin America and Australia. It is obtained from the seed through different extraction methods, which will affect the quality, essential fatty acid content, depth of phytonutrients, and preservation of antioxidant potency of the oil.

These methods include cold-pressing, solvent extraction, vacuum steam distillation, and supercritical fluids extraction. While avoiding heat, cold-pressed extraction techniques preserve and maximize the bioactive phytochemicals and health-promoting function of chia seed oil. Cold-pressed Chia seed oil is the only version worth considering for our products.


Chia seed oil contains essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and phytonutrients that work together to nourish the skin, protect it from damage, and improve its overall appearance.

The high content of essential fatty acids in chia seed oil helps to hydrate the skin, making it an excellent moisturizer. The antioxidants in chia seed oil help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals, making it a good choice for those concerned with aging.

Some of the main phytonutrients in Chia seed oil include Alpha-Linolenic Acid, Arachidonic Acid, Caffeic Acid, Linoleic Acid, Myricetin, Oleic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Palmitoleic Acid, Quercetin, Rosmarinic Acid, and Stearic Acid.

Alpha-Linolenic acid (Omega-3) is an essential fatty acid that reduces inflammation and promotes a soft, supple, and nourished complexion.

Arachidonic acid replenishes moisture and restores suppleness and the appearance of dry, damaged, and flaky skin.

Caffeic acid is a polyphenol with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It may help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals.

Linoleic acid (Omega-6) is an essential fatty acid that facilitates wound healing, promotes anti-inflammatory properties, soothes acne, and promotes the skin's moisture retention ability.

Myricetin is a flavonoid with antioxidant properties that promote the healing of sun-damaged skin by minimizing inflammation induced by UVA and UVB rays while stimulating collagen formation, repair, and skin cell regeneration.

Oleic acid promotes and maintains the skin's suppleness, radiance, and softness. Additionally, oleic acid acts as an antioxidant and reduces the appearance of aging while reducing irritation and inflammation.

Palmitic acid is an antioxidant that promotes softening, soothing, hydration, and protection from environmental damage.

Palmitoleic acid delays premature aging by improving skin elasticity. Additionally, it is deeply moisturizing, promotes toning, and boosts a radiant complexion.

Quercetin reduces redness, itching, and inflammation of damaged skin while promoting skin barrier function, increasing hydration, and reducing water loss.

Rosmarinic acid helps boost collagen, which is directly linked to the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Both decrease as we age and are especially susceptible to environmental damage.

Stearic acid offers pore-cleansing properties while softening and protecting the skin by binding water and oil.
