What is Karanja Oil?
Karanja oil is a cold-pressed oil derived from the seeds of the Pongolote Tree that is native to India and South Asia. The shrub itself is extremely resilient and weather resistant that is able to grow in extreme conditions - dry, wet, and even blazes of extreme heat.
Native to India, it has been used in Ayurvedic medicine to help with eczema and psoriasis given its anti-inflammatory and healing properties thanks to its high levels of omega 9 fatty acid.
Karanja oil is rich in flavonoids, found in seeds, nuts, grains, spices, and other medicinal plants. Flavonoids play a vital role in protecting the seed and plant from environmental damage & known for its UV-blocking and absorbing abilities. As a result, it offers protection for both skin and hair.
