Abyssinian Oil, also referred to as Crambe Oil is expeller pressed from the seeds of the African plant Crambe abyssinica. This natural raw material is clear yellow in appearance with a neutral aroma. It is uniquely loaded with Erucic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid sought after for nail and cuticle care formulations. In addition to being a source of omega-9 Oleic and omega-6 Linoleic acids, Abyssinian oil contains Vitamin E, a natural antioxidant. Abyssinian oil is a lightweight material with a non-greasy feel when applied to the hair and skin as it is most comparable to the natural oils produced by the human skin. It is an ideal ingredient in hydrating and moisturizing personal-care formulations and is most known for its promotion of healthy hair shine, conditioning, and treating dry, damaged, or brittle hair. Serums, lotions, masks, and creams are everyday consumer products that may utilize the natural benefits this oil has to offer.
