Poppy Seed Oil

Posted on





INCI name: Oleum Papaveris Seed Oil




Poppies are grown in the Mediterranean and Asia, and have been well-known for centuries as the source of opium. The seeds have traditionally been used as flavourings and condiments.


Poppy seed oil is high in linoleic and oleic acids, and contains a small amount of palmitic acid. It has good moisturising qualities for both skin and hair.


Use poppy seed oil in emollient soap, cream, lotion, hair conditioner and balm formulations.
