We use blueberry seed oil in our Blueberry Cream Body Butter. Blueberry seed oil is an anti-aging superstar. Blueberries are a superfood and the antioxidant capacity in blueberries beats that in both blackberries and strawberries. The total flavonoid content is also higher. Blueberries are the richest source of antioxidants found in fresh fruits and vegetables.
We love blueberry seed oil because of the antioxidant protection and because it is a natural source of vitamin E. Blueberry seed oil is ideal for sensitive skin. It has natural restorative properties and helps aid and support tissue repair. It is believed that blueberry seed oil is an optimal ingredient for treating skin that has been damaged by burns and chemotherapy. Blueberry seed oil is fast absorbing so when added to Shea butter and whipped by hand it results in a body butter that melts easily into the skin and leaves a sweet delicate aroma.
In the United States, the only berry we consume more than blueberries is the strawberry. Here are a few health benefits of eating blueberries:
