Why Choose Organic, Cold-Pressed Blackberry Seed Oil?

Organic (Biodynamic) Label: Refers to how ingredients are grown and harvested.
Cold-Pressed Label: Refers to how ingredients are processed from a plant or seed to oil. When oils are cold-pressed, they are extracted from their source using mechanical methods rather than heat or solvents.
With cold-pressed oils, there is very little processing, which allows it to retain important nutrients responsible for healing. Ultimately, cold pressing delivers a potent product that's highly effective AND safe because there aren't any additives. It’s a win/win for your skin!
