Here is why
When it comes to the skin, our biggest organ, simplicity, and efficacy should be at the forefront of self-care. In the same way, as superfoods are well-known to tackle multiple skin concerns so do super oils. Black Seed is one of them, the panacea of oils, a potent “cure-all” botanical for optimal skin health.
A Simple, straightforward, nutrient-dense, active constituents rich, antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory plant. It is rich in powerful active constituents such as Thymoquinone, essential fatty acids, proteins, alkaloids, and saponins. It also contains several vitamins such as vitamins E, C, and D, besides some minerals such as iron, calcium, zinc, and potassium. The result? An elixir full of precious actives that work together to provide the skin with a wondrously moisturizing, nourishing, and anti-ageing effect.
Black Seed or Blessed Seed as the Ancient Egyptians used to call it, has been widely known to be part of the self-care and healthcare rituals of iconic Egyptian queens and kings such as Cleopatra and Tutankhamun. A well-researched botanical, its origins go back to ancient times. Black Seed has been mentioned in many different ancient herbal papyruses for its healing properties. Moreover, there have been over 600 clinical studies conducted on the seed which back up its healing and restorative properties.
Though precious and extensively used in the East, Black Cumin Seed Oil is quite unknown in the West. While the Western and European markets are already saturated with well-known easily sourced oils, the special trait of the Black Seed is that it only grows in certain parts of the world, making it that more exquisite to get our hands on. As the current beauty industry is increasingly turning towards natural and organic self-care methods, black cumin seed oil is catching some major steam, and for good reason.
Black Seed Oil is a great oil for all skin types. When applied to the skin this oil provides nourishing and long-lasting moisture. The Calcium present in this oil works with the epidermis to produce sebum - which is the natural skin coating substance - and in turn, helps the skin to retain moisture. It is also rich in vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) which is known to boost moisture and alleviate skin dryness by strengthening the skin barrier function.
