What are Cold Pressed Oils? How are They Good for Your Skin?
Cold pressed oils are the latest rage in the beauty industry.
Everyone’s talking about cold pressed oils – it’s on the labels of oil bottles and in the ingredient list fo many beauty products. What are they? And are they worth it? Cold pressed oils are produced by maintaining low heat and grinding the raw product naturally. Many types of fruits, seeds, and vegetables can be used to make it, but not all cooking oils go through this process. As heat is introduced to the process of making oil, it degrades their flavour, nutritional value and colour as well. Cold pressed oils are generally deeper in colour and may not even look as refined as ‘refined’ oils do. The key process for any cold pressed oil is to extract the oils without letting it reach a temperature higher than 230 degree Celsius. (This is how you can nourish your hair with aromatherapy)
