What is Black Seed Oil and what does it do for you?

Black seed oil has a key component, Thymoquinone, which give it powerful antioxidant properties. This makes blackseed oil the perfect ingredient to fight off free radicals that notoriously damage both hair and skin cells through oxidation.  It therefore prevents aging and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other forms of skin damage. 

The presence of over 100 vitamins, and minerals, including Vitamin A, B, and C, help improve the elasticity and hydration of your skin. Being rich in plant acids, fatty acids, and amino acids also make it an excellent hydrator for skin by maintaining the skin’s lipid barrier which protects the skin from drying out. It also works to reduce the appearance of dark spots by helping in the process of regeneration of skin cells resulting in an overall clearer, brighter, and more even skin tone. 

Extremely rich in Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid, Oleic Acids, and Linoleic Acids, it has also antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which make it an excellent ingredient to fight off acne, clogged pores, and oily skin.Containing natural antihistamine properties also make it extremely useful in the treatment of skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, skin redness, breakouts, rashes etc.
