Silybum Marianum (Milk Thistle) Seed Oil

What It Does

Milk Thistle Seed Oil is a thin oil that feels very dry on skin - the exact opposite of greasy! Obtained from cold-pressing of milk thistle plant seeds, this oil is renowned for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It has excellent skin conditioning properties due to its high oleic and linoliec acid content.

BONUS! We love that it’s virtually odorless, making it perfect for any skincare formulation you have in mind. This is the perfect base oil for any face or body oil!

Our Milk Thistle Seed Oil undergoes a patented extraction process that naturally stabilizes the oil for a 5-year shelf life.

How It's Made

Milk thistle seeds are isolated and cold pressed. This is where internal stabilization happens! The oil is then filtered through a physical micron filter, revealing a clear, silky oil that’s ultra-light and dry to the touch.
