Desert Date Oil, Cold Pressed

The oil factor

O&3 presents Desert Date Oil, Cold Pressed

O&3 presents Desert Date Oil, Cold Pressed. This arid (very resilient!) savanana plant is found on the periphery of the Sahara.
This plant is able to remain green all year long, forms a true green shield by playing a permanent arm-wrestling with the mineral desert. It draws the moisture necessary for its survival thanks to an efficient root system capable of sinking very deeply into the ground. As a “pioneer plant”, it is a green oasis that allows other plants to find shelter under its soothing shadow. Locally the plant is source of nourishment, the young leaves are consumed as spinach, the ripe fruits are appreciated and eaten like ""candy"" by children and the old people who find an invigorating food supplement. Finally, the seeds provide an oil by cold pressing, this latter is consumed as food locally, but has also become popular in the cosmetic world due to its attractive fatty acid profile.
