What is Amaranth CO2-extract?
Amaranth CO2 extract is derived from the annual blooming plant Amaranth, which belongs to the foxtail family. Because the plant’s flowers persist a long time, the word “amaranth” derives from the Greek word “amaranton,” which means “unwilting.” Our extract’s species (Amaranthus caudatus) is one of the planet’s oldest domesticated plants. The extract is light to medium yellow in colour, with a distinct herbal scent. At room temperature, it is liquid and absorbs well.

How to use it in formulation?
Skin benefits from the seed include moisturising and healing properties. Amaranth shines in skin care because of its high squalene concentration, which helps to moisturise, detoxify, soothe, increase suppleness, and decrease wrinkles. It penetrates swiftly and deeply into the skin, giving strong hydration without leaving the skin feeling oily. Because it enters the skin so quickly, it can transport other vital components that would otherwise fail to pass through the skin barrier. Amaranth CO2 Extract blends well with other oil-soluble actives in serums that can be used alone or over moisturisers. Add it to the water phase of your formula. It can be cooked in either a hot or cold oven.
