Rosemary Antioxidant CO2 - Organic
Rosemary Antioxidant CO2 Extract - Organic
Our certified organic Rosemary Antioxidant is an oil soluble CO2 extract of rosemary leaves. It is a viscous liquid that provides natural antioxidant properties greater than mixed tocopherols, however, it has a mild rosemary aroma.
Using Rosemary Antioxidant (also known as Rosemary Extract) in your cosmetic formulas is a natural way to extend shelf life. A small amount (0.2% of the formula) is recommended, and at this low percentage the mild aroma should not have an olfactory effect on your formula.
Storage Suggestions: We recommend that this oil be stored in a refrigerator and used within 1-2 years of the purchase date.
Blending Suggestions: For antioxidant use, we suggest the addition of 0.05 – 0.5% Rosemary Antioxidant CO2 to any fixed (vegetable) oils such as Sunflower Oil - Organic, Jojoba Oil, Golden - Organic, or Fractionated Coconut Oil, or to oil-based products.
Solubility: Soluble in fixed oils, insoluble in alcohol.
Appearance: Very viscous, dark green fluid that may require special use instructions to blend. Does contain some particulate matter.
Safety Considerations: Dilute before using. A patch test should be performed before use for those with sensitive skin.
Customer Reviews for Rosemary Antioxidant CO2 - Organic
- herby goodness Review by DeeDee
- Love the aroma of this! After adding a good dab to all my face creams I said, "What the heck" and rubbed some directly all over my visage. Okay, so I looked a little "green" for a minute or so while the stuff sunk in but my complexion ultimately thanked me. This is so mild it can be used neat even on sensitive skin. (Posted on 2/24/14)
