Cold-pressed oils are oils that have been extracted at cool temperature in a screw-pressed process which protects the oil from rancidity, trans-fat or toxic chemicals. This process of extraction helps the oils to retain its nutrients, antioxidants, aroma, texture and all its natural qualities. This is why cold-pressed oils are the best for the skin because they provide the skin with the best nourishment. We advise against heat-pressed oil because of the external heat that is applied in the process of extraction. Because the oil loses vital natural qualities, you find that heat-pressed oils go rancid faster than cold-pressed oils. Compare cold-pressed coconut oil with heat-pressed coconut oil – they not only differ in colour but in aroma and quality as well. So to take better care of your skin, use only cold-pressed oils.
