This is one of the most beautiful oils we have ever seen - soft, lubricious, thick. The proof is in the first touch.
Ximenia Americana Seed Oil
Known as the sour plum fruit, the ximenia tree produces thick, rich oil with over 90% unsaturated fatty acids. It feels unlike any other plant oil in the world! Ximenia seed oil is high in ximenic acid and nervosic acids, incredible moisturizers for skin and hair. Add to any emulsion or use just a few drops in your favorite lotion or conditioner for an ultra-luxurious experience. We like to think of this as liquid gold! Our Ximenia Seed Oil undergoes a patented extraction process that naturally stabilizes the oil for a 5-year shelf life.
The fruit falls to the ground and is collected. The flesh is used for food, but the discarded pit is full of kernels. The kernels are cold-pressed to release oil, which is further filtered to remove impurities.
