rice oil is a vegetable oil obtained by pressing the germ and the inner film that covers the grain, parts present in unrefined rice (brown), but which are mechanically eliminated during the process of de-husking and polishing. The oil is contained in the germ and in this outer film called chaff. It is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, including the oleic (40-43%) linoleic (35-40%) and linolenic (1-2 %) acids, while among the saturated the most common is palmitic acid (15-17%); it is also characterized by a significant unsaponifiable fraction (3-5%) rich in sterols and gamma oryzanol (0.4%).
Rice oil is prized for its emollient, anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and protective properties. Rice oil tocopherols are widely used as anti-ageing agents for the treatment and prevention of premature ageing of the skin. The orizanol range effectively counteracts the damage caused by free radicals to the phospholipids of cell membranes, protecting the skin from oxidative stress and photo-ageing. Thanks to these properties, rice oil is indicated for the formulation of creams to treat and protect all skin types and, given its moderate UV filter properties, as a component of sun care products.
Rice oil is characterized by good oxidative stability both in anhydrous and emulsified form. It can be used as a massage oil, on its own or blended with other oils and as the base oil for essential oils or as a fatty component in cosmetic products. It is a safe ingredient that can be applied on the skin in any concentration.
