A clear, bright, pale yellow oil with a pleasant smell that has been pressed from the seeds of the white poppy flower and lightly refined to preserve the Vitamin E content.

  • Use 1% to 100%.
  • Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in small amounts in water based gels that will hold it in suspension.
  • Heat stable so can be used in Stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.
For oily skin specifically, White Poppy Seed Oil is excellent when mixed with low freezing point oils like Hazelnut, Thistle and Squalane.

Skin Care
  • White Poppy Seed Oil is ideal for use on damaged skin such as photoaging from too much sun as well as very dehydrated skin where it eliminates flakiness and tightness, it is soothing and will improve flexibility and radiance.
  • It is a superb oil to use in anti wrinkle eye serums as it is rich in Omega 9 essential fatty acids which reduce the appearance of aging (premature wrinkles and fine lines).
  • This oil is a versatile and very effective natural emollient that improves skin softness whilst also improving firmness. It sinks into the skin quickly leaving it feeling smoother, softer and more supple.
  • White Poppy Seed oil is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. It is also a good oil to use on irritated skin and baby products. Its protective qualities will help protect from nappy rashes and other irritations.
  • It is rich in Linoleic Acid (an Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acid) which is able to penetrate into the deeper layers of the epidermis.
  • The free radical protection provided by White Poppy Seed Oil is equally important for slowing down the ageing process of more mature skin. It has a stimulating effect on the skin with a strong lifting effect revitalizing tired looking and flabby skin.
  • When blended with other oils, White Poppy Seed Oil improves the skin penetration of those oils. It is very effective in reducing Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL) thus giving excellent skin hydration levels.
  • The very elegant feel of the oil makes other oils feel thinner in consistency when used in a blend. This is a great advantage for products designed for acne-prone skin.
  • White Poppy Seed Oil is ideal as an after shower oil or lotion as it penetrates quickly without leaving any greasiness and leaves the skin feeling nourished and hydrated and very smooth.
  • It is also rich in natural tocopherols giving it a very beneficial effect on the skin.
  • As it softens rough skin White Poppy Seed Oil is a great choice for gardeners hand creams and foot creams.
  • Equally good in massage products as White Poppy Seed Oil penetrates the skin easily which enables you to include richer oils like Castor Oil whilst still leaving the skin feeling toned and lifted. Use in body sculpting products and body wraps.
Hair Care
  • White Poppy Seed Oil strengthens the hair shaft so is good to use after hair has been processed, or after a weave has been removed.
  • It can dramatically improve the appearance of split ends. It has no sticky after feel on the hair and does not make the hair lank.
  • White Poppy Seed Oil is nourishing and moisturises the hair shaft as well as the scalp.
  • It makes hair softer and more flexible making it easier to comb through whilst imparting a good shine.
