Abyssinian Oil Fun Facts

The Crambe abyssinica plant is known for its ability to grow in arid regions with minimal water requirements, making it a resilient and environmentally-friendly crop.

Crambe abyssinica is considered an environmentally friendly crop due to its low demands for energy and water.

The seeds of the Crambe abyssinica plant can also be processed to produce biodiesel.

What is Abyssinian Oil?

Abyssinian Oil is derived from the non-food oilseed crop Crambe abyssinica. This plant is native to the Mediterranean region and flourishes in tropical and subtropical climates. The crop was initially planted in an effort to find a vegetable oil alternative to fossil fuels. The oil, specifically, was used as a synthetic lubricant in industrial settings. 

Nowadays, Abyssinian Oil is a popular ingredient in cosmetics and lotions since it contains erucic acid, a compound that has the potential to reduce inflammation in the skin. Its emollient properties make it an excellent choice for anyone looking for a natural way to nourish their skin.
