INCI name: Daucus carota
Description: This oil is made by infusing the common edible carrot in a carrier or vegetable oil. It should not be confused with Carrot Seed essential oil, which comes from the wild carrot (common name: Queen Anne’s Lace). Our Carrot oil is infused in Certified Organic Sunflower oil, has a moderate to heavy texture, and is an orange color.
History / benefits: Rich in vitamins A and E, beta carotene and carotenoids, Carrot infused oil is one of the best cellular revitalizing oils. It is a natural antioxidant, making it a must-have oil for healthy skin. Carotenoids have been found to enhance the body’s ability to protect the skin from UVR damage. Carotenes are strong free radical blockers; hence this is an ideal oil to add to anti-aging preparations. Due to its intense color, this oil will stain the skin and clothing if used alone. It is most beneficial when added to a cream or oil blend.
How to use: Carrot infused oil is most beneficial when added at 10 – 15% of a facial or body preparation.

30 ml Apricot Kernel oil
20 ml Evening Primrose Oil
10 ml Carrot Infused oil
