NEW: Cotton Seed Oil

With an endless selection of unique, advantageous plant oils available on the market today, there are a few revolutionary products that have been around for 100s of years, often overlooked by formulators!  The latest addition to our product line is one such ingredient which was first produced in the United States in 1768 in Pennsylvania – Cottonseed oil! Cold-pressed extracted from the seeds of the Gossypium herbaceum plant, this natural refined oil is a light-yellow liquid with a neutral aroma and flavor profile. Cotton plants are cultivated for both their fibers and yielded seed oil, maximizing farming efficiency and remaining environmentally friendly compared to single-purpose crops.

Cottonseed oil was first commercially produced in the mid to late nineteenth century due to an oil and fat shortage, where it was often used in lamps and lards. In the 20th century it became the most prominent cooking oil in the United States, though in modern times it has mostly been replaced in households by canola oil and olive oil.

Cottonseed oil is most widely used in the culinary industry. It has a high smoke point around 420-450°F, perfect for a variety of cooking methods like frying, sauteing, baking, and occasionally deep-frying. Restaurants use it as a neutral oil to prepare many dishes like fried foods and tempura, or as a base for salad dressing.

This oil has high levels of vitamin E, an antioxidant, and unsaturated fats. It is particularly high in linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid sought by people with certain diets or lifestyles. This fatty acid content and high antioxidant level are coveted in the cosmetic realm as well. Moisturizers, lotions, hair oil, and other hydrating products all often utilize plant-based oils like cottonseed oil for emollient and moisturizing properties.
