Botanical Name: Oryza sativa

Extraction Method: Solvent Extraction

Processing Type: Refined

Obtained From: Bran

Origin: India

Description: Rice Bran Carrier Oil is extracted from the bran or outer coat of the brown rice grain removed during the milling process. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins and essential oils. Rice Bran Oil also contains a constituent called oryzanol, which is known to be safe to use in skin care formulations meant for outdoor use.

Color: Golden brown to brown liquid. Ricebran may be cloudy in appearance due to the presence of natural sediments found in the oil. The product is good to use but if desired, it can be subsequently filtered to remove any sediments.

Aromatic Description: Rice Bran Carrier Oil has very little scent characteristic of most carrier oils.

Common Uses: Rice Bran Carrier Oil has a high percentage of fatty acids and unsaponifiables and is one of the best sources of tocotrienols, an antioxidant that may be much more powerful and effective than Vitamin E. It is a mild oil perfect for dry, flaky, sensitive, mature and delicate skin (e.g. baby's skin), where additional moisture is required and is effective for keeping skin smooth.

Rice Bran Carrier Oil contains a compound called gamma-oryzanol, and is used in many types of hair sunscreen products and is incorporated into shampoos, conditioners ad special hair treatments where it adds sheen while moisturizing and conditioning the hair without weighing it down. It is sometimes used in lipsticks providing lip conditioning and strong mold stability, and in nail polishes to provide smooth spreadability. Usage levels in formulations are 0.5 - 10 %.

Consistency: Typical and Characteristic of Carrier Oils.

Absorption: Absorbs into skin at average speed, slight oil feeling left on skin.

Directions To Use: The current batch of Ricebran Oil is not winterized. This means that it will become cloudy in cold temperatures. We would recommend placing the bottle in a very hot water bath, changing the water frequently and once it is back to the liquid state be sure to shake well before use.

Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for current Best Before Date.

Cautions: None Known.

Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.

This oil is similar to soya bean oil in fatty acid composition, but it's a little thicker in consistency. I not 100% sure, but I think it absorbs quicker than the organic soya bean oil also from NDA. My skin isn't too big of a fan of this oil. At 10% and higher, it really irritates my sensitive skin. Perhaps it has something to do with the sediment floating around? I've poured some onto my arm at 100% a couple of times just to see the feel, absorption rate, etc., and sometimes it gave me a mild, itchy rash. I'm not allergic to rice or rice bran, so I definitely think the floating sediment is to blame. When I use it at lower percentages, I don't really notice any benefits. It sort of seems just like a "filler" ingredient.

I love this oil. It's very light and completely scent free. I use it in my massage oils to lessen the thickness of other, heavier oils. It's also extremely safe for skin, so I don't have to worry about clogging pores or causing rashes. I also use it as a base for natural perfumes because it's so light and has no scent.

I use this oil in my lip balms and am incorporating it into a body oil as one of the main carrier oils. I also may try it in my day face lotion to aid with sun protection. Once I get to the point of making products for baby as well, I will definitely keep this oil in mind. But for now I am still experimenting with cremes, balms, and most items for adult use. This is a must have in my cosmetics pantry! Thanks NDA!

Ricebran oil is truly the unsung hero of carrier oils. By adding it (to Buriti/Rosehip/Evening Primrose) to other richer oils, it seems to boost skincare qualities. I've used this in a face oil (my skin's dry) and it's very versatile given the absence of any strong aroma or colour.

Good quality oil at a great price. It doesn't absorb into the skin quite as well as grape seed oil (although it absorbs pretty well) but used in conjunction with other pricier oils help cut down costs. It has no noticeable smell and is mild.

Oh my god, the price is unbelievable, got 1 L for $6 and is very light oil, absorbs fast, gliding easily, non greasy feeling on the skin, planning on using it with a few drops of Tangerine EO for massage treatments.

I am now using this as the sole base for my massage oils instead of soy or others. Very few people are allergic to ricebran, it works wonderfully and is cheaper than everything else. Has good restorative properties for dry skin as well. Highly recommended.

Having ricebran oil for my work is a must. The quality is excellent, the shelf life is very good, and the properties are important. Huile fantastique à utiliser dans la fabrication du savon. Facile à utiliser, ne laisse pas d'odeur. Nous sommes chanceuses de pouvoir accéder à un tel produit, et à un tel prix. Thank you to New Directions.

I don't know which to rave about more: the unbeatable price or the high quality product itself! This is my first time using Rice Bran Oil and have found NDA's snippet of information regarding each product extremely helpful in guiding my way through which oils to use in my bath and beauty products. Being an extremely conscious individual (perhaps even obsessive) of the harmful effects the sun has on the skin, I try to find ingredients to put in my skin care that will help fight and prevent UVA and UVB damage. Rice Bran Oil is an indispensable weapon in the daily battle against the sun.

Rice bran is a wonderful oil...i subsitute some of the olive from my soap recipe and replace with rice bran oil. I find it helps to cut the sliminess of high olive oil soap. I also use rice bran in a body moisturizer and it seems to absorb well. I am very pleased with this oil.
