The Benefits of Abyssinian Oil

February 11, 2018 1 Comment

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.

The Skin Care Benefits of Green Tea

Green Tea is a powerhouse antioxidant which has been shown to significantly promote collagen synthesis. It may also help to slow down the skin glycation process.

Choosing body care products formulated with Green Tea can help minimize the signs of skin aging caused by dietary indiscretions such as excess sugar consumption, which causes skin glycation. What is glycation? Simply put, it is the process of sugar proteins damaging the collagen and elastin in the skin. Too much sugar ages your skin, according to scientific research.

Green Tea is protective.

The EGCG in Green Tea also helps protect against free radicals. Free radicals not only impact your health, but they negatively impact your skin. UV damage, smoke and other pollutants can wreak havoc on your skin, accelerating the aging process and damaging cells. This damage causes collagen and elastin to break down, making you look older, as we just mentioned with the glycation process.
