Abyssinian oil originates from the Ethiopian Highlands, a region that is both sunny and fertile. The abundance of sunshine and nutrients produces this oil with all its assets. The oil seeds of the Crambe abyssinica ripen towards the end of the dry season. They provide work and a secure income to the local population both during and after this period.
Abyssinian oil is pressed cold and extracted without using any solvents. The oil is clear to light yellow in color. It is almost scentless and has a very long shelf life.
The oil provides shine and softness without leaving any trace of grease or heaviness. This natural ingredient can help retain the skin’s moisture and strengthen protective cell layers. These layers form important barriers and not only protect our skin from dryness, but also from absorbing pollutants and other environmental influences.
