Vegetable Carrier Oils

Coastal Classic Creations® sources our organic ingredients through suppliers who are certified organic by Quality Assurance International, Quality Certification Services, and Oregon Tilth, three leading USDA National Organic Program-accredited organic certification companies. We also carry a variety of USDA certified organic oils.




A vegetable carrier oil is any of a large group of oils that are esters of fatty acids and glycerol, obtained from the leaves, fruit, or seeds of plants. Coastal Classic Creations® carrier oils are extracted through expeller or cold pressed methods. We do not employ the use of solvent, hexane or alcohol extraction, and we do not stock oils that have been processed through heat intensive hydraulic extraction.

Cold Pressed

A method of mechanical extraction where heat is reduced and minimized throughout the batching of the raw material. This helps the oil maintain its original state, constituents, and depth. Temperatures are rigorously controlled to ensure that they do not exceed 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit. Although not a practical method of extraction for all vegetable oils on the market, it is highly regarded as the extraction method of choice.

Expeller Pressed

A method of natural, mechanical extraction and processing of oils where a small amount of heat is produced simply through the frictional heat created by hydraulic presses. This is usually around 120-200 degrees Fahrenheit and makes the oil suitable and economical as a base for cosmetics because of its fairly undisturbed molecular state.


A fully processed oil where it has been exposed to all methods of refinement including a flash fluctuation in temperature as high as 450 degrees Fahrenheit and winterization as low as -30 degrees Fahrenheit, deodorization, which removes the heavy and often unsettling odor in oil, and finally bleaching, where natural clays and other mediums are used to alter or remove oils, color, and scent. This makes for an economical oil in cosmetics and body care products, but it is not the healthiest as a food grade oil.

Partially Refined

A process where only some of the methods available are employed to produce a manufactured oil. Only one or two of the three available methods are used in a partially refined oil. These include, but are not limited to, deodorization, winterization, and natural bleaching. These methods are used for oils which have been known historically to go rancid quickly, and they are also used to further stabilize an oil or remove its heavy odor and deep color.


A process of mechanical extraction and screen filtering where no additional refining process has taken place. This ensures the finest quality product and makes the oil the most exquisite for food and cosmetic preparation. The unrefined process helps oil retain a rich, strong flavor and color that is true to its natural state. Unrefined oils are always darker in color and richer in scent.


We use USDA Certified Organic Argan Oil-Virgin. This oil is extracted from the nut of the Argan Tree (Argania Spinosa). Organic Argan Oil-Virgin is a rare oil that is unrefined and carries a light yellowish clear appearance with a mild characteristic odor. Properties contributing to the oil's unique moisturizing and skin nourishment abilities include its naturally occurring Vitamin E and antioxidant content. The oil is also rich in Oleic (C18:1) and Linoleic (C18:2) essential fatty acids. The combination of Organic Argan Oil's properties is believed to possess anti-aging benefits when applied to the skin. Use of Organic Argan Oil-Virgin in hair applications is believed to lead to healthier hair.
