Black Seed Oil

black cumin seed oil

It is also referred to as black cumin oil. Black seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the black cumin plant which is native to southwest Asia. While it might be mostly found in the kitchen as a cooking oil, black seed oil has so much to offer.

It has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties which has caused it to be a key ingredient among manufacturers of skincare products. In particular to us, our Superfood firming serum contains this wonderfully beneficial oil in organic form.

The benefits of black cumin seed oil include:

  • It fights acne, clogged pores and inflammation

Acne is mostly a result of clogged pores and clogged pores arise from accumulation of dirty oils on the pores. Today, many people are struggling with acne problems. The skin is also prone to inflammation which can cause redness and irritation. The good news is that the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of black seed oil help it in reducing clogged pore and controlling oil. Furthermore, it also helps in taming the redness from inflammation and soothing irritation even from eczema. Once the oil is massaged onto the skin, the results can be expected in a couple of days.

Ageing of the skin is fast becoming a problem for women aswell as men. Increasing in age is inevitable but unfortunately as we age, the skin becomes susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles. However, Black seed oil can really help slow the ageing process down. Black seed oil, among other vegan beauty products, contains tons of vitamins and minerals like vitamin A, B and C which help the skin in moisture retention, elasticity maintenance and fighting the free radicals that cause the skin to age faster.

In addition, black seed oil boasts of essential fatty acids which reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With black seed oil, you can effectively reduce the fine lines and wrinkles with no side effects on your skin.

  • It fades dark spots and discoloration

When wounds heal or pimples dry up, they leave behind dark spots that leave the face or the skin looking “spotted”. Sometimes, ageing, hormones and sun damage can also cause dark spots on the skin. Fortunately, black seed oil can help to salvage the situation. As mentioned, black seed oil contains the important vitamin A , amino acids and fatty acids which work together to regenerate new skin cells. As a result, using black seed oil consistently can fade dark spots and reduce the discoloration over time.

Black seed oil is so good for the skin that it is not surprising that many other manufacturers of skincare products are quick to include it in their products.
