Chia seed oil is a nutrient-rich oil from the mint group with a golden colour. Chia seed is considered the richest botanical source of omega-3 fatty acids found in nature, offering more than flaxseed or fish oil. These fatty acids encourage a plumper look to the skin. They also help maintain moisture levels, thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as relieving dryness and peeling. Chia seed oil is also a great source of vitamin B3 and zinc, which helps with oily skin and clogged pores. The antioxidants in chia seed oil have been shown to be even stronger than vitamin C and E. It requires 11 pounds of seeds to obtain 4 cups oil.
