Rice Bran Oil
Rice Bran Oil is primarily known for its stability making it an ideal oil for high temperature cooking, frying, dressings and cosmetics. It is obtained from the outer layer of the rice kernel or rice bran and has a light honey colored appearance with a bland characteristic odor and taste.
Rice Bran Oil has an ideal balance of saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats that make it ideal for sensitive skin formulations. It is frequently used in soap formulations to give soap a rich and creamy texture. It is also found in a few anti-aging formulas.
Personal note: This oil absorbs rather quickly and is light. I enjoy using this particular oil in my formulas for individuals with skin concerns because of its makeup and cost effectiveness.
