Crambe abyssinica is native to the Mediterranean region and eastern Africa, particularly in the area originally called Abyssinia which today is known as Ethiopia. This plant was introduced into the United States in the 1940’s and successfully grown in the northern central states chiefly in North Dakota. The seeds typically produce around 30% oil with an unusually high level of a long-chain monounsaturated fatty acid called Erucic acid. Erucic usually accounts for more than 50% of the total fatty acids and also responsible in part for the exceptional skin and hair care benefits that the oil offers.

Abyssinian Oil is easily absorbed into the epidermal tissue generating a very noticeable smooth texture to the skin. Even in the case of highly wrinkled and/or exceptionally dry skin, it makes a significant improvement in tone and texture.  Abyssinian Oil is also light in color and essentially odorless, it can be used at reasonably high levels in skin care products and decorative cosmetics without interfering with the aesthetic excellence of the finished formula. For decorative cosmetics,  Abyssinian Oil can assist in the dispersion of pigments and promote an even smooth delivery of the final formulated product. Abyssinian Oil also offer exceptional benefits for all hair types. It produces a natural radiant luster and the oil glides onto the hair surface to form a very light continuous
lipid layer which provides lubricity to help detangle and lock in essential moisture.


Skin: Smooths texture, easily absorbed.
Hair: All hair types, moisturiser and detangler.
