California and Oregon
Limnanthes Alba, better known as white meadowfoam, grows in wet grassy habitats and moist woodlands found throughout California and Oregon. White meadowfoam flowers are small, white, and produce fruit – which is the major source of meadowfoam seed oil.
Meadowfoam is commonly grown in gardens to create borders and entryways, as it provides a glossy, green backdrop that suppresses the growth of weeds while providing yellow-and-white daisy-like flowers.
Meadowfoam oil is an excellent moisturizer and is used in many natural skincare lines to hydrate and rejuvenate skin. With its gentle and restorative properties, it is a wonderful choice for those with dry, sensitive, or damaged skin.
