Saw Palmetto Berry Essential Oil is an elegant elixir for the skin and contains many of the same benefits and loving lipids as seabuckthorn oil. Like Seabuckthorn, it keeps the skin's moisture stable and pleasantly plump, improves the appearance of wise skin, and casts a shield from the rough and tumble of daily life.
"Dr. Moerck recommends saw palmetto oil (supercritical CO2 extract). Quality is extremely important... According to him, supercritical CO2 extraction is the cleanest extraction method known today, aside from eating the food whole. And, the higher the pressure used, the more micronutrients are left in the oil, such as lutein, lycopene, zeaxanthin, and chlorophyll. The highest quality products are the organic supercritical-extracted saw palmetto oils, which are very dark green in color."
