Chili Pepper (Capsicum) CO2
Capsicum content no less than three percent.
|Distillation Method:||CO2 (help)|
This oil must be diluted with a carrier to be applied to the skin. A 75 percent carrier blended with 25 percent of this Chili CO2 would still contain .875 Capsaicin. Even then it would not be advisable to use topically without additional dilution. We suggest no higher than a 5% dilution. The natural constituent, Capsaicin, is the source of both the heat and the reputed benefits of the material. The Capsaicin content can often be as low as 0.9 percent and as high as 6.0 percent. The reason for the range is the raw material used in the extraction. If seeds and the inner pepper are used the Capsaicin content will be greater. If the red outer pepper is used then the Capsaicin will be lower.
