The Crambe Abyssinica plant originated in eastern Africa in the Ethiopian Highlands (“Abyssinia”). However, recently it is also cultivated in the Mediterranean region in southern Europe as a spring crop too. Our organically crafted Abyssinian Oil is Cold-Pressed here in Canada from the seeds of the Crambe Abyssinica crop, a multibranched annually-growing oilseed plant in the Brassicaceae family.
Abyssinian Crambe Seed Oil is a light and nongreasy natural seed oil that is coveted for its high levels of cuticle-smoothing Erucic Acid (an unsaturated C22 fatty acid). Abyssinian Oil is also rich in Antioxidants and Vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, C and E), proteins and minerals which all promote healthier hair and skin. It is an incredibly stable oil due to the high amount of Omega-9 it contains and is a great emollient for dispersing nutrients into the skin when infused with herbs or essential oils.
Abyssinian Oil hydrates skin without leaving that oily feeling and it balances uneven skin tone and texture. Its fast absorption makes it ideal for oilier skin.
