Rice Bran Oil (Refined)


Rice Bran Oil, also known as Rice Bran Carrier Oil, is derived from the bran layer of rice grains. It boasts a high level of minerals and essential fatty acids and is naturally rich in Vitamins A, B and, in particular, vitamin E (Tocotrienol), which is a very powerful antioxidant. It also has a high Squalane content, which is naturally produced in the skin’s sebum, but lessens over time. Due to these many skin-related benefits, Rice Bran Oil is an ideal carrier oil for diluting essential oils in.


• Rice Bran Oil is often likened to Lanolin, due to its similar properties, but unlike Lanolin for some people, it doesn’t irritate sensitive skin or cause reactions.


• When used in skincare, it boasts an abundance of benefits and is said to help improve circulation, encourage skin regeneration, and increase moisture retention.


• As a deeply hydrating and fast absorbing oil, Rice Bran Carrier Oil makes an excellent moisturiser that is known to even skin tone, minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and brighten the skins complexion, making it invaluable for minimizing dark skin spots and dark eye circles. It may also help soothe skin irritations such as eczema, and improve the appearance of the skins surface, leaving skin feeling supple, hydrated and youthful.


• When used in hair care, Rice Bran Oil works to repair damage and brittleness, providing deep hydration and strength to weak, dry and unruly hair. Its circulation improving properties also helps with hair growth, whilst soothing irritations and preventing dandruff. Plus, did you know Rice Bran Oil can also assist with preventing the early development of grey hair?


AWO’s Rice Bran Oil is pressed from fresh, high quality rice bran, followed by an extraction, dewaxing, bleaching, deodorization and winterization process, resulting in an oil that has a high oxidative stability and is light in colour and odour, making it ideal for your cosmetic formulations.
