Organic Karanja oil is obtained by crushing and pressing the seeds of the Pongamia tree (Millettia pinnata), which is in the pea family. It possesses a marked ability to absorb sunlight in both the UVA and UVB spectrums. Indeed, pure oil can reach an SPF of 20. In the pharmaceutical industry, it is also widely used to combat certain skin disorders, such as vitiligo and herpes. It is used in cosmetics due, in part, to its soothing and anti-age properties.
