Abyssinian oil is derived from the nut of the Abyssinian tree which is found in Ethiopia. This oils molecular structure and make up is very unique and is the only naturally occurring oil of its kind. Abyssinian oil contains high levels of cis-12-docosenic acid; this acid is great for skin nutrition as it holds exceptional moisturizing properties leaving the skin with improved texture, and smoothness and reduces wrinkles. Abyssinian oil penetrates the skin quickly and also has a low comedogenic rating, this allows the oil to enter the skin, clean out the pores and leave the skin soft and smooth in an environmentally safe process that is renewable and sustainable. Abyssinian oil is an excellent moisturizer as it is light and non-greasy and is an effective sealant due to its high levels of omega-9 (erucic acid). This acid present in the oil will help to add life to dry/dead hair and will boost shine and luster while protecting against split ends.
