What are the skin and hair benefits of Abyssinian Oil?
Abyssinian Oil consists of 60% erucic acid (Omega -9), known for its highly lubricating properties. It has a unique molecular structure, not found in any other naturally occurring substance, making it highly resistant to oxidation.
Abyssinian Oil is almost odorless and colorless, making it ideal for the addition of subtle aromas, which should not be overpowered by a carrier oil aroma.
This oil is currently being used in skin and hair care products, including liquid soaps, lip gloss, shampoos and conditioners, hair styling aids, pomades, and relaxers and texturizers.
It is a non-greasy conditioning oil that promotes smooth, supple hair, and aids in smoothing the hair shaft, due to its high fatty acid content.
When used in hair care products, it provides several benefits, such as frizz and split ends reduction, and a deep, lasting, penetrating moisture.
Abyssinian oil is lighter in texture than most oils, and penetrates the hair more easily than other oils.
It is so fine, that it can be used in a spray bottle (atomizer). This makes Abyssinian Oil, ideal for hair care products.
Its fine texture allows pigments, and other ingredient extracts, to be perfectly dispersed.
Abyssinian Seed Oil is easily absorbed, and does not leave a sticky or greasy feeling behind. It contains an abundance of Linoleic and Linolenic Acids.
Linoleic Acid helps scalp and hair regeneration, while Linolenic Acid, is anti-inflammatory, cell-renewing, and follicle conditioning.
This oil is high in natural Vitamin E, and phytosterols, which both aid hair and scalp regeneration, while increasing softness.
Abyssinian Oil is is non-comedogenic, meaning that it does not clog pores, so this is the hair oil to use, if you have acne skin, because hair oil often finds its way onto the face.
Abyssinian Oil is intensely nourishing, to create improved hair shaft elasticity, with an improved ability to maintain hydration levels.
Abyssinian Oil has very similar benefits for hair as Argan Oil – increased shine, deep moisture, and never greasy, but it has a lighter texture than Argan, and does not have the strong aroma that Argan Oil has. It also prevents hair breakage, when applied 2 to 3 times a week.
If you don’t like the idea of synthetic silicones in your hair products, then Abyssinian Oil is the natural alternative.

Bamboo Oil is made by crushing bamboo, and then infusing it in sunflower oil. Once the active compounds are transferred to the oil, it is filtered, in order to remove the plant material. We are left with a pure Bamboo Infusion Oil, which is rich in nutrients.
Our Bamboo Oil (Bambusa vulgaris) contains more active compounds than a bamboo powder extract, which has been made from only the bark. Our Bamboo Oil has the benefit of having the bark, leaves, and the valuable inner sap, infused in oil.
Bamboo Oil is a rich source of silica, which plays a crucial role in keeping the hair strong, yet supple. The silica from bamboo extract, improves hair health, by helping the shaft retain essential minerals such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium.
A recent scholarly article stated: “Bamboo extract is the richest known source of natural silica, containing over 70% organic silica. Bamboo silica has been used in hair care products, providing strength and resilience to hair structures.”
Bamboo contains 70% organic silica by weight, which means it’s 10 times more potent than most popular silica supplements on the market today. Have you noticed how strong, yet supple, bamboo is? This quality is partly due to the high quantities of silica, and this strength and suppleness can be imparted to your hair, via topical application.
As the body ages, we produce less and less silica. In fact, many people 40 years of age and older are silica-deficient and they don’t even know it.
Silica is one of the most important constituents in human cellular structure, hair cells included, where it plays a key role in improving elasticity of the cells.
Our Bamboo Oil contains significant amounts of bamboo sap silica, which is supportive of the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans, which play a key role in moisture retention, so use it for extra dry scalp and hair.
Bamboo Oil also offers anti-irritant properties, soothing the skin, so psoriasis or eczema of the scalp, produces fewer symptoms.
It has also been found that Bamboo Extract Oil is a great anti-acne ingredient, as it creates a more healthy environment on the surface of the skin, which means the cells are less likely to become irritated or inflamed, therefore reducing the frequency and severity of breakouts.
Benefits of the bamboo leaves extracts, are flavonoids, which protect the hair from oxidative damage caused by free radicals, which can damage hair cells.
Flavonoids are also anti-inflammatory, and this is why Bamboo Oil soothes irritated scalps. Many people do not know that a scalp which is unbalanced via irritations, can produce coarse, dry hair. So if you treat the scalp, you treat your hair into growing out more lustrous and glossy.
