The Benefits of Abyssinian Oil

If you are a regular over on the Seed Facebook page, you've likely seen our Ingredients Spotlight posts. We recently featured an ingredient you may be unfamiliar with called Abyssinian Oil. There's a good reason -- this is relatively new to the market when it comes to skin care.

What is Abyssinian Seed Oil?

  • Abyssinian Seed Oil, or Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil is a natural seed oil that comes from a mustard plant. It is native to the Mediterranean region.
  • There is something truly unique about this oil: it has a molecular structure that is not found in any other naturally occurring substance.
  • It is very resistant to oxidation, unlike many plant oils, as it contains a high percentage of C22 fatty acids.
  • This oil is easily absorbed and does not leave a sticky or greasy feeling behind.
  • Abyssinian Oil contains an abundance of both Linoleic and Linolenic Acids. Linoleic Acid, an Omega 6 fatty acid, is helpful with skin regeneration, while Linolenic Acid, an Omega 3, is anti-inflammatory, cell-communicating, and skin conditioning.
