Salvia Hispanica (Chia) Seed Oil

Overview

TeraFluid Chia is a highly nutrient-dense bioactive oil extracted from sustainably-sourced chia seeds (Salvia hispanica). This botanical emollient is a potent source of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory phenolic compounds, omega-3 fatty acid, and very long chain branched chain fatty acids (VLC BCFAs). These nutrients work together to restore depleted lipid content and sooth stressed, dry, irritated skin and hair.

Bioactive BCFAs
Dietary chia oil has been utilized for centuries in Aztec and American Indian cultures. This nutrient-dense, prebiotic superfood is a potent source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory phenolic compounds. In recent years, topical applications have gained attention thanks to the powerful therapeutic benefits of the high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids and branched chain fatty acids (BCFAs) in chia. While not common in typical foods, BCFAs can be found in traditional diets utilizing super-nutrient animal foods like yak and goat milk. Few plant sources have been identified; mainly brussels sprouts, pine nuts, marine sponges, or some fermented foods like natto. However, unlike other dietary sources, chia has been identified as a uniquely potent source of the very long chain (VLC) variety of BCFAs. This variety contains chains greater than 20 carbons in length and has been linked specifically to an anti-pruritic (anti- itch) effect on skin. VLC BCFAs also closely mimic the skin surface lipids, helping to restore depleted lipid content on stressed, dry, irritated skin, scalp, and hair.

Clinical Results
The restorative anti-inflammatory effects of chia oil were studied in an in-vivo clinical trial with human volunteers. A topical lotion containing 4% chia seed oil was compared to a placebo lotion over a period of 8 weeks on subjects suffering from xerotic pruritus symptoms including itching, scaling, dryness, and redness. Results show a significant improvement in skin hydration, itchiness, dry patches, and overall skin appearance.
