The Walnuts are cracked open from the shells and then sun-dried before being opened and crushed in a local slow moving “Kolu” to produce this rich nourishing oil. While being naturally rich in antioxidants like vitamin E & Omega-3 fatty acids (which restore and soften the skin); Walnuts also have a significant amount of vitamin B5 which offers anti-inflammatory, moisturizing, and restorative benefits. They also contain linolenic and oleic acid, and therefore provides excellent moisturizing and skin barrier-repairing benefits
