Abyssinian Oil: What is it and what properties does it have?

What do you know about Abyssinian oil ?

In the world of skincare and skincare, there is a constant search for natural ingredients that can deliver effective and long-lasting results!

One such ingredient that we have loved at Candelinas , and have included in our Body Care products, is Abyssinian oil .

Derived from the seeds of the Abyssinia plant, this oil offers a wealth of benefits for both skin and hair.

In this article, we will discover together the wonders of Abbessinia oil , its composition and how it can revolutionize your beauty routine.

So let's get started!

What is Abyssinian oil?

Abyssinian oil , also known as rape or Ethiopian sesame, is a natural oil extracted from the seeds of the Abyssinian plant (Crambe abyssinica).

It is even worth mentioning that this plant comes from the highlands of Ethiopia, but today it is cultivated in various regions worldwide. Abyssinian oil is obtained using the cold extraction method, ensuring the preservation of its valuable properties.

Oil of Abyssinia - Composition and unique properties

Abyssinia oil is famous for its excellent composition, which differentiates it from other conventional beauty oils. It is packed with essential fatty acids, including a high concentration of erucic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid. Specifically, this acid provides the oil with its remarkable moisturizing and conditioning properties.

The light and non-greasy nature of Abyssinian oil allows it to be quickly absorbed by the skin and hair without leaving a heavy residue.

It essentially acts as an excellent natural emollient, effectively sealing in moisture and providing deep hydration. This makes it suitable for all skin and hair types, including dry, oily and sensitive.

Abyssinian Oil – Benefits for the skin

When it comes to skin care, Abyssinian oil offers a host of benefits.

Its moisturizing properties help replenish and nourish the skin, leaving it soft, supple and smooth.

Abyssinian oil forms a protective barrier on the surface of the skin, reducing moisture loss and preventing dehydration. Regular use of Abyssinian oil can actually improve overall skin texture and elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

In addition, Abyssinia oil is rich in antioxidants, which help neutralize free radicals and protect the skin from environmental damage. It helps reduce inflammation and redness, making it beneficial for those with sensitive or irritated skin, such as eczema or rosacea.

Abyssinian Oil - Hair Benefits

Abyssinia oil also works wonders for the hair. Yes, you read that right!

Its light texture allows it to penetrate deep into the hair shaft, providing intense hydration and nourishment. It helps restore damaged hair, smooth frizz and add shine without weighing hair down.

The composition of the oil is very similar to the natural oils produced by the scalp, making it an excellent choice for its health. It helps balance sebum production, preventing an excessively oily or dry scalp.

By moisturizing the scalp, Abyssinian oil can reduce dandruff and promote a healthier environment for hair growth.

How to use Abyssinia oil

Abyssinian oil can be incorporated into your beauty routine in a number of ways. For skin care, a few drops can be applied to cleansed skin before moisturizer or added to your favorite moisturizer for extra hydration. It can also be used as a makeup primer to create a smooth canvas for flawless application.

When it comes to hair care, Abyssinian oil can be used as a leave-in treatment. Simply apply a small amount to wet or dry hair, focusing on the ends, to nourish and protect strands. It can also be used as a heat protectant before styling with hot tools or as a finishing oil to add shine!
