The many oil we stock are processed by distinct and various methods.

Cold Pressed

A method of mechanical extraction where heat is reduced and minimized throughout the batching of the raw material. This helps the oil maintain its original state, constituents, and depth. Temperatures are rigorously controlled to ensure that it does not exceed 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit. You can expect to pay more for cold pressed.

Pressed
A method of natural, mechanical extraction and processing of oils where a small amount of heat is produced simply through the frictional heat created by hydraulic presses. This is usually around 120-200 degrees Fahrenheit and makes the oil suitable and economical as a base for cosmetics because of its fairly undisturbed molecular state. It also makes a fine edible food grade oil.

Refined (manufactured)
A fully processed oil where it has been exposed to all methods of refinement including a flash fluctuation in temperature as high as 450 degrees and winterization as low as -30 degrees, deodorization, which removes the heavy and often unsettling odour in oil, and finally bleaching, where natural clays and other mediums are used to alter or remove an oils colour, and any fragrance. This makes for an economical oil in cosmetics and body care products, but it is not the healthiest as a food grade oil.Usually a cheaper oil

Unrefined
A process of mechanical extraction and screen filtering where no additional refining process has taken place. This ensures the finest quality product and makes the oil the most exquisite for food and cosmetic preparation. The unrefined process helps oil their rich strong flavours and scent,and is kept to its natural state. Unrefined oils are always darker in color and richer in scent and more expensive.
