Amaranth Seed

Amaranth is one of the oldest known crops to be cultivated on the planet with a long history dating back millennia. One such civilization that cultivated this amazing plant was the Aztecs. Amaranth can still be found to this day in many parts of Central America.

We use amaranth oil  in combination with red raspberry seed and pomegranate to form a natural chemo preventative that will help fight against the damage caused from harmful UV radiation. Visit our other blogs to learn more about our amazing oil blend.

What makes it special?
With a unique blend of unsaturated and saturated fatty acids, vitamin E in both the forms – tocopherols and tocotrienols and then squalene along with other micro-nutrients like phospholipids and phytosterols lend this oil remarkable therapeutic properties.

Amaranth Seed Oil Squalene 
Amaranth has the greatest squalene levels of all plant sources. It even has up to eight times as much as shark liver oil! Squalene also slows down the effects of aging so we could call it an anti-aging agent. Another benefit is that it does not irritate the skin.

Because of the high concentration of natural occurring squalene Amaranth oil is an excellent addition to our blend thanks to it’s amazing properties such as:

Amaranth seed oil deeply hydrates skin without excess oiliness or leaving a greasy residue. It’s a great option to replenish dry or damaged skin.
