What does Cold Pressed mean?
Cold Pressing is a mechanical method of drawing oil from seeds. No chemical substances are used during this process. The seeds are processed with what is known as a screw process. This popular method is widely used. This process attracts only a slight temperature rise due to the friction of the seed against the screw press. Low temperatures help to conserve the natural ingredients and properties of the oil. This is a gentle way of processing which retains the high purity level of the oil.
This process produces the following unrefined oils:
Avocado Oil, Flaxseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Natural Rosehip Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Wheatgerm Oil
What does Expeller Pressed mean?
Expeller pressing is the continuous process of pressing seeds against a metal press head, producing pressure from friction. The heat produced as a result of this pressure against the seeds is what forces the oil from the seed. The pressing is usually performed at around 85 °C.
This process produces the following purified oils:
Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil
