Certified Organic, Cold Pressed, Unrefined, Elderberry Seed Oil (Sambucus nigra), contains a high ratio of unsaturated fatty acids and alpha linolenic acid. Elderberries contain tannin, amino acids, carotenoids, flavonoids, rutin, and is rich in Vitamins B, C and E. 

Elderberry Oil’s flavonoids include anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants that protect cells against damage. 

The oil is often used to treat allergies and skin eczema, because it also has anti-inflammatory effects, thanks to compounds which enhance the immune functions of the skin.

This precious oil is high in rare compounds, which encourages smoothness and elasticity of the skin tissues, while stabilizing the skin-lipid contents of the skin layers, encouraging long-term moisturizing.

Elderberry Oil has a rich, silky skin feeling, whilst being readily absorbed. This oil is gaining increasing attention by cosmeceutical manufacturers, and by the spa and aromatherapy industry, due to its silky texture and anti-aging effects.

Elderberry Oil’s anthocyanins and other flavonoids, found in the pigment, are responsible for its high ORAC score, which means that its ability to mop up skin damage such as helping age spots to fade, and reducing wrinkling, is one of the highest available. Elderberries have almost 5 times as many anthocyanins as Blueberries.
