Cold-pressed body oils, does this term ring a bell?

We all have often heard of this term but do we actually know its meaning? This blog is precisely going to explain it to you in simple words. All you need is 5 minutes, and you should be able to sort out all your queries about cold-pressed oils.

What are cold-pressed oils?

Cold-pressing is a process where oil is extracted from organically grown seeds, fruits and nuts by pressing them safely at a cool temperature. This protects the oil from rancidity, trans fats and other toxic processing chemicals. The process includes absolutely 0% chemicals and is high in nutrient value.
These oils are unfiltered as well as minimally processed and owe their superior quality to natural nutrients, antioxidants, aroma, texture and flavour. All this is super beneficial to the skin and makes it a much better alternative than an over-the-shelf commercial body oil.  

How are organic cold-pressed oils different from regular oils available in the market?

The process used to extract regular oil uses the application of external heat and chemicals. This helps give a higher yield but there’s a direct impact on the oil properties. The oil generated as a result often contains cholesterol and trans fats that aren't healthy for your skin. Such oils are often treated with harmful chemicals to increase their shelf life.
