New Product: Bilberry Seed Oil

Are you familiar with the Bilberry plant? If you’re not originally from Europe nor currently living there, there’s a good chance you aren’t! Also called the European Blueberry, this perennial shrub has been used in food and medicine for centuries. It is most closely related to the blueberry, being in the same genus, Vaccinium. There are have several differences, however –  one main driving fact is bilberries are higher in anthocyanins, giving their interior pulp a dark, red color unlike the light green hue of blueberries.

The tiny seeds from this plant are the source of our latest product, Bilberry Seed Oil! This liquid carries a yellow to green appearance, obtained through supercritical CO2 extraction. Oleic, linoleic, and linolenic omega fatty acids are highly present in this oil, highly desired by manufacturers of skincare products for their hydrating, nourishing effect on the skin barrier. Bilberry seed oil may contain natural antioxidants which can reduce the impact harsh environment conditions can have on our skin. This natural raw material is found in anti-aging serums, moisturizers, lotions, balms, shampoos, conditioners, among a wide range of topical products.

The ratio of the omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids in Bilberry Oil is considered optimal for the diet, especially when looking at the ratios found in other seed oils high in unsaturated fatty acids. For this reason, bilberry oil is increasing in popularity in food preparations, supplement manufacturing, or taken as is on its own.
