Botanic Innovations introduced zinfandel (red) grape seed oil for personal care, nutritional supplements and food use. The oil has a diversity of phytosterols (plant sterols) and is rich in vitamin E and antioxidants to help support heart health and promote healthy skin and muscles. It is non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, plant-based, Kosher and free from additives.
The lipids in the oil yield high moisturization making it useful in skincare and hair care products. It is also an effective cooking oil having a high smoke point. Lipids obtained from seeds using the NatureFRESH Cold-Press Process are unadulterated by heat, solvents or additives and contain a rich and diverse range of phytochemicals. They contain a variety of antioxidant activity and hundreds of other plant chemicals like quinones and polyphenolics.
Red Zinfandel Grape Seed Oil does have similar nutrient profiles to other types of grape seed oil, but specifying the grape type gives marketers good options to highlight ingredients more effectively, said Mark Mueller, founder of Botanic Innovations.
The oil contains a variety of fatty acids, including stearic, pamitic, omega-9, omega-6 and omega-3.
Botanic Innovations produces a wide range of specialized oils, powders and other derivatives from non-GMO fruit, vegetable, grain and herb seeds. Their products are used in animal care products, cosmetics and functional food additives.
