      Since I first tried meadowfoam seed oil it has been my favorite ingredient for nearly all my products.  This oil is a fairly new discovery compared to other oils and is not found in most commercial products -  YET.  It has a very promising future and I envision it being the next great thing, following in the footsteps of past super products such as  argan oil, coconut  and jojoba.
     It is mainly a domestic grown source.  The meadowfoam seed plant is grown in northern California, Oregon, Washington and southwestern Canada.  It is a rotation crop making is a sustainable source of oil and economical.  The plant got its name because the abundant small white flowers resemble the foam on ocean waves.  The oil is pressed from the seeds of the plant which are edible.
