Virgin vegetable oils are also known as cold pressed oils.

The nuts or seeds are pressed and the resulting oil is simply filtered before bottling.

Virgin oils contain all the oily compounds in the seeds – the oil (triglyceride) itself, along with lecithin, vitamins, waxes, etc.
Because of the presence of all this compounds, Cold pressed virgin oils have the highest benefits to the skin.
Virgin oils however could sometimes be too colourful or the aroma overwhelming, in these case some oils needs to undergo some further processing like Deodorizing or Bleaching.

Oils are natural products and can vary greatly, in colour or aroma depending of their origins. The technology to press the oils can also have an influence, the oil obtained from the same seed will vary if pressed with a screw press or with an hydraulic press for example.
