Carrot is one of the most commonly used vegetables for human nutrition. It is a highly nutritious plant that contains valuable amounts of vitamins and antioxidants. Carrot seed extract and its essential oil have been reported in experimental studies to have essential benefits for human health.
Carrot seed oil is widely used in medicines, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, aromatic and fragrance products. It is packed with unsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and carotenoids. Its seed extract is useful for balancing oily and dry skin and considered one of the best rejuvenating oils of all the time.
We cultivate carrot on our own farmlands and supply our SFE plant directly from the fields. This allows our team of agronomists, farmers and scientists to have total control over the complete growing and production processes, from growing the carrot to extracting the seeds and assuring that the extracts are from the highest quality.
Skin illuminating & moisturizing
Recommended % of use : 0,1-5
Carrot seed extract is the best rejuvenating formula to maintain skin’s youthful texture and provide exceptional hydrating and illuminating properties to the skin [1-3].
The carrot extract has a caring effect, especially on dry and scaly skin and is therefore well suited for use in skin care products. Due to the carotenoids it contains, which have antioxidant properties, the extract can also be used in sun protection creams and after-sun products.
FOOD SUPPLEMENTS INGREDIENT’S
The carrot extract can be used in food supplements as a natural source of beta-carotene.
Beta-carotene is converted to vitamin A in the body and thus makes an important contribution to vitamin A supply. Vitamin A is an important component of the visual process, and it is also important for hearing, tasting and smelling.
The BfR recommends a maximum amount of 2 mg beta-carotene per daily dose in food supplements.
