Natural Sourcing Launches Highly Moisturizing Strawberry Seed Oil for Cosmetics

Published on 2015-01-19. Author : SpecialChem

OXFORD, CT -- Natural Sourcing has announced the inclusion of Strawberry Seed Oil [INCI: Fragaria Ananassa (Strawberry) Seed Oil] within its growing line of specialty oils for use in personal care product development.

Garden strawberries, Fragaria ananassa, are grown and enjoyed worldwide as a sweet, flavorful nutritive food source. Strawberry Seed Oil, produced from the tiny seeds of these vibrant red berries, is gaining increased recognition for its impressive composition of essential fatty acids that includes up to 38% Omega-3 Linolenic Acid. Strawberry Seed Oil is also reported to be a rich source of tocopherols and anti-oxidants. A small amount of natural polyphenols found in strawberry seeds are present in the cold pressed oil. Most oils rich in Omega-3 essential fatty acids tend to have a short shelf life that spans only a few months. However, Strawberry Seed Oil offers a one-year shelf life when stored properly.

Natural Sourcing Strawberry Seed Oil is carefully produced and packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this nutritive oil.


Strawberry Seed Oil is light in viscosity, pale to medium green in color, penetrates well and possesses a fresh, sweet, subtle aroma reminiscent of strawberries. The composition of Strawberry Seed Oil makes it well suited for use in a wide array of personal care applications that include formulations intended for problem, damaged, maturing or sensitive skin. It helps improve the texture of creams and lotions and is recommended for inclusion in formulations where emollience and deep moisturization are desired. Strawberry Seed Oil soothes, hydrates and protects the skin while helping to maintain skin elasticity.

Strawberry Seed Oil is perfectly suited for the following personal care applications: moisturizers, anti-aging products, hair care, nail care and lip care.
