Sesame Seed Oil
Description – Sesame is an annual plant with purple or white flowers, mainly cultivated for the edible seed, with some of the crop being used for oil production. This is a refined sesame which does not have the strong taste and aroma of unrefined varieties that are normally used for cooking rather than cosmetics. It is a half-fatty, half-dry oil.
