Chilean Hazelnut Oil (Gevuina)

The Gevuina avellana tree is a beautiful evergreen tree that is native to regions of Chile and Argentina. The tree can reach up to 20 meters tall and bears small nuts, similar to those of the macadamia tree. Gevuina nuts consist of approximately 12% protein and 50% oil, and are also rich in vitamins, minerals, lipids, sterols and antioxidants.

Chilean Hazelnut Oil, also known as Gevuina Oil, possesses a significantly higher content of monounsaturated fats (80%) than most lipids including Borage, Sunflower, Safflower, Sesame, Peach Kernel, Borage, Pumpkin and Olive Oil. Chilean Hazelnut Oil penetrates the skin effectively, leaves the skin feeling supple and refreshed, and is a nutritive addition to face creams, anti-wrinkle serums, anti-aging formulations, lip care products, hair products, make-up, sun care preparations, baby products, shaving products and other cosmetic formulations. Chilean Hazelnut Oil is virtually odorless and pale in color. It is light in texture and absorbs quickly. It has a shelf life of at least 18 months when stored in a cool dry place, away from direct sunlight.
