Pumpkin seed oil from Viridian Nutrition uses only certified organic Austrian Pumpkin seeds (Cucurbita pepo) seeds, cold pressed with preheated seeds to maximize the volatile oils and presented under a blanket of nitrogen in an amber glass bottle.
The nitrogen bubble is inert and protects the oil from air. The amber glass and outer recycled cardboard tube protect the oil from heat and light. The seed oil, supplies omega 6 and omega 9 essential fatty acids in a 1:1 ratio, and has a high content of carotenoids and fat-soluble vitamins including vitamin E.
A study published in the Journal of Food Science confirmed that lightly toasting the pumpkin seeds prior to the cold-pressing process, provided for the optimum presence of the volatile oils. Samples were toasted at various temperatures for varying lengths of time to ascertain the optimum conditions to maximise the biochemical composition and antioxidant capacity of the organic pumpkin seed oil.
Viridian’s Organic Pumpkin Seed oil uses lightly toasted seeds prior to cold-pressing.

Ethical vitamins with an organic heart! There truly is something for everyone for every health condition in the Viridian range, from probiotics, to herbs, to multis, to singles, to oils... the list goes on.
We love the range as they contain absolutely no nasties but we hope that you already assumed that, to be stocked by our good shelves. So the fillers or bases of these products (where required) are foods such as bilberry or alfalfa, some of the great things that you know you should eat, but probably don't. This avoids using the usual cheap and nasty fillers that a lot of other companies use.
Everyone feels great on Viridian, both by buying ethical and the results too! Never have we experienced such commitment to a supplement brand, people try it, they see results and don't want to chance using anything else! Their Clear Skin Complex and Clear Skin Oil used in combination never fail to please those with problematic skin conditions, the formulations are expertly designed and include everything you would want to see in a skin health supplement.
Our favourite must have product for every household is the Raw Coconut Oil that we always recommend if cooking at a high temperature. And if you run out of your moisturiser, just pop down to your kitchen cupboard and bingo! Bring your bottles back for recycling and receive 25p off your next purchase.
