Oleosomes are nature's warehouse, or storage facility, for the emollient oils, antioxidants and natural moisture barriers that serve to keep the skin soft, supple and young looking. Using a proprietary non-solvent aqueous extraction process, these oleosomes are isolated from the seed fully intact, and when used in skin care applications can provide lasting protection to the skin. Hydresia(TM) G2 is a natural, renewable replacement for hydrocarbon derived petrolatum, mineral oil and non-ionic surfactants.
