With its perfectly balanced composition of tocopherols and oleic, linoleic & palmitic acids, rice bran oil is particularly suitable for combating ageing of the skin thanks to its emollient, moisturising, and smoothing power.
Rice bran oil, centuries of use in the East.
Rice bran oil, or Oryza sativa, has been used in Japan for enturies and is now widely used in the food industry across Asia. The main variety is Japonica Indica, but Koshihikari, Haenuki and Yumepirika are also used.
How rice bran oil is obtained.
The oil is obtained from rice bran using a low-temperature extraction process. It is extracted from both the husk and the rice germ with a yield of about 15g of oil per kilo of rice.
The advantages of low-temperature extraction
The technology of the process plays a key role as, due to the low yield, it requires high-performance extraction methods to keep costs competitive. In addition to performance, the low-temperature process preserves the structure of γ-oryzanol and tocotrienols keeping them intact during extraction. Tocotrienols are a powerful antioxidant that can be up to 40-60 times more effective than tocopherol. The high γ-oryzanol content helps protect against lipid peroxidation caused by UV radiation.
