Like the olive oil and coconut oil market and many other markets, many black seed oil companies blend the products with cheaper oils.
In fact that's how Onhava got started. Once we saw the lab results of leading various black seed oils on the market, we knew that consumers deserve up front transparency. You can read the full story on our about page.
So as the old saying goes, Buyer Beware. More than ever now its so easy for companies to private label and launch many products.
Your best bet is to demand proof from a reputable 3rd party lab UP FRONT. And not just any report. The most important is the Fatty Acids profile report which shows if its pure black seed oil. You can see a link to the full report below.
Once you have the full report its not enough, make sure you also see as much information about the farm. Unfortunately, most brands simply buy from many different farms and press the oil. That's why you can see how diverse the reviews of some brands can be. No traceability, no consistency.
Of course all this costs more but what can we do? We are taking oils like this for our health and our health deserves purity and honesty.
