Bst Natural offer quality sunflower oil produced from shelled sunflower seeds. It doesn’t loose its nutritional values by means of cold pressing technique,
Refined sunflower seed oil production is performed by pressing sunflower seeds together with husks. However, in cold pressed sunflower kernel oil production only sunflower seeds without husks are used. This is a really boutique production which bears additional costs for producers. But it enables us to take out native characteristics of sunflower seed within the oil without any damage to fatty acids.
In addition, we don’t apply refining process to our oils to maintain the nutritional values of the seeds. We only filter it through 40×40 filter press (zero residue). Therefore, cold pressed, unrefined sunflower oil is different than ordinary refined sunflower oil existing in supermarket shelves.
Only a small portion of the sunflower oil is used in cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Cold pressed sunflower seed oil is called as “precious oil” by cosmetic industry which is a new classification by the industry which enters into formulas of high quality cosmetic products.
