Natural Sourcing, LLC, has added Amla Oil (INCI: Emblica Officinalis (Amla) Fruit Extract (and) Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil) to its portfolio of natural ingredients for personal care product development.
The company's Amla Oil is known for its ability to nourish healthy hair and scalp and is produced through a multi-step process. First, amla fruit is crushed and boiled to release its natural oils, then reduced under vacuum pressure. The hydro-extract is then warmed in sesame oil and the remaining moisture is removed.
