Abyssinian Seed Oil

You may have heard of some of the different types of oils used in ‘natural’ hair care, oils such as coconut or jojoba. And these are wonderful. But have you heard about the benefits of Abyssinian seed oil for your hair health? We feature it in all of our handmade Shampoo Bars.                               

Here’s a little bit about why.

As you must have already figured out, Abyssinian Seed Oil is highly beneficial for your hair. It's the added extra in our Shampoo Bar multi-tasking ingredient list.

Derived from the seeds of the crambe abyssinica plant, Abyssinian Seed Oil has a unique molecular structure not found in any other natural oils. It is highly coveted for its high levels of cuticle-smoothing Erucic Acid,  (an unsaturated C22 fatty acid), which also make it highly resistant to oxidation. It is rich in antioxidants and vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C and Vitamin E.  When incorporated into shampoo bars, it provides a multitude of advantages for your hair.

Abyssinian seed oil deeply moisturizes and conditions the hair strands, leaving them soft and silky smooth. It helps to seal in moisture, preventing dryness and frizz while promoting overall hair health.

Additionally, Abyssinian seed oil has been shown to strengthen and protect the hair shafts from damage caused by environmental stressors such as pollution or heat styling tools. This makes it an ideal ingredient for those looking to improve their hair's resilience and reduce breakage. It also works wonders in detangling unruly strands, making your hair more manageable and easier to style

Plus, this versatile oil helps to nourish the scalp, promoting a healthy environment for optimal hair growth.

We incorporate other beautiful plant oils such as Baobab, Moringa and Argan into our Shampoo Bars to complement the goodness of the Abyssinian Oil. These wonderful oils have been carefully selected for the powerful vitamin rich benefits they add to our formulations. Mult-tasking, powerful and anti-oxidant rich, they are working together to help achieve hair and scalp health.
