Meadowfoam is named after the appearance of the plant at full bloom - a solid canopy of frothy, white flowers that resembles foamy ocean waves in the breeze. Meadowfoam Oil is widely used in skin and hair care applications due to its lubricity and long, stable shelf life.  Meadowfoam Oil was originally developed to replace sperm whale oil in the 1970's.

Meadowfoam has outstanding resistance to oxidisation which means it has a long, stable shelf life, and when blended with less stable oils such as Hemp, Evening Primrose, Sweet Almond, Borage etc. Meadowfoam extends their shelf life too.

Meadowfoam Oil has binding qualities which helps your products retain their fragrance longer.
