We are always delighted to learn about different commercial applications using our natural emollients. With Spate reporting an average of 3,500 monthly searches for Meadowfoam Seed Oil in the US, we like to check in periodically and see what types of products using our oils are trending commercially. Here’s what we found.
Waterless and Water-Wise Beauty was one of the hottest trends in 2022 and this trend shows no sign of slowing down in 2023. There has been a significant jump in skin and hair cleansing bar formulations, but water-wise cleansing oil formulations remain popular as well.
Not only are natural emollients excellent choices for waterless formulations, but Meadowfoam Seed Oil carries the added benefit of deriving from a water-wise crop. Meadowfoam cultivated by Natural Plant Products’ grower-members is no-till farmed in the very rainy Willamette Valley of Oregon. This means the soil is never plowed or tilled and requires little-to-no irrigation.
Relying on less water than a traditional liquid hair/body cleansing formula, Briogeo released their Be Gentle, Be Kind™ Aloe + Oat Milk Ultra Soothing 3-in-1 Cleansing Bar at the end of 2022. As a hair, face, and body cleanser, this multitasking powerhouse also lends itself well to the emerging skinimalism trend. We love the addition of oat kernel flour and Meadowfoam Seed Oil to soothe and moisturize.
Another new water-wise product featuring Meadowfoam Seed Oil is the MAC Cosmetics Hyper Real Fresh Canvas Cleansing Oil, which touts effective removal of makeup and impurities from the face.
Pacifica Beauty has also released their Wake Up Beautiful Waterless Cleansing Balm for non-stripping facial cleansing.
