Researchers at the Korea University of Dermatology* formulated topical products using 4% chia seed oil and measured the results on patients with renal dysfunction (dry, itchy skin is a real problem for these patients). After two weeks of continued use, they observed improved skin hydration, skin barrier function, reduced trans-epidermal water loss and a decrease in itchy skin. The old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words” is certainly true here and we just had to share with you the remarkable pictures taken from this study*.
It is interesting to note that in this study, topical moisturizers and emollients typically used rarely resolved the dry and itchy skin of these patients. No wonder everyone is always looking for a new skin cream!
Superior Source of Omega 3s
Chia seed is the richest botanical source of Omega 3 fatty acids found in nature. Gram for gram, chia seed oil offers more omega-3 fatty acids than flax seed or fish oil. Supercritical chia seed oil delivers a whopping 600 mg omega-3 per 1 gram of extract! This allows for a super dose of Omega 3s in a small amount of product. Super potency for super effects!
Potent super antioxidant protection
In addition to the remarkable potency of the Omega-3s, chia seed oil is loaded unusually high levels of phyto-nutrients and anti-oxidants. In fact, chia seeds have more 30% more cell-protecting antioxidants than blueberries! The Nutritional Science Research Institute** tested the nutritional value of chia seed and proclaimed it to have “the highest amount of antioxidants we have ever measured calls chia one of the most powerful whole food antioxidants we know.
Given the role of antioxidants to help protect our skin by limiting the production of free radicals that can damage it and cause premature aging, as well as the hydrating benefits of chia seed oil used topically, it is clear to see how supercritical chia oil is crucial to a superior skin care regimen, and why we sing its praises.
And we aren’t the only ones to sing the praises of chia. In his beautiful little book “Chia: The Complete Guide to the Ultimate Superfood” by Dr. Wayne Coates says “whether you’ve got acne or wrinkles, chia can help your skin look better:”
