Why cold-pressed and unrefined?
Cold-pressed products go through a process of mechanical extraction (pressure) and low temperature controlled conditions to extract the oil from the seed, nut, etc. Unrefined means that the product has not had any additional refining/preservation/deodorising. These oils can also be referred to as ‘virgin’ or ‘extra virgin’. This process ensures the best quality product and makes the oil excellent for cosmetics. The unrefined/cold-pressed process helps the oil maintain a rich, strong smell and color that is true to its natural state, leaving the oil’s nutrients and antioxidants undamaged and unchanged.
100% natural, vegan friendly, paraben-free, sulphate-free, cruelty-free, preservative-free.

The magic behind the name…
Alchemy is a series of philosophies and an ancient practice that wants to develop ‘The Elixir of Life’, or ‘immortality’ with the philosopher’s stone. The alchemists wanted to achieve the transmutation of basic substances in gold to achieve ultimate wisdom.
