Black cumin oil

Why is black cumin such a valuable oil? Why is it used in our cosmetics? You can find out here.

Black cumin oil has been used as a remedy for over 2000 years and helps against many ailments - if the quality is right. The healthy oil from black cumin seeds that we use in our face cream is certified organic, natural and gently produced.

When producing the oil, the black cumin seeds are cold pressed. This is the only way to preserve important nutrients - the reason why many people value black cumin oil.

In Islamic and Asian cultures, black cumin oil has been known as a spice and medicine for thousands of years. Nefertiti, Hippocrates and Charlemagne also used black cumin oil for a variety of purposes. Black cumin is called Habbah al-baraka in Arabic, which in German means something like blessed seeds.

Black cumin contains more than 100 valuable ingredients that have a positive effect on many biochemical processes in the body. Of these, around 60 percent are polyunsaturated fatty acids and more than 20 percent are monounsaturated fatty acids.

What is particularly noteworthy about black cumin oil is the essential oils it contains. For example, the p-cymene it contains is said to have a pain-relieving effect. In addition, there is the relaxing effect of trans-anethole and the most well-known thymoquinone, which has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin.

The valuable oil also contains many vitamins. Beta-carotene, zinc, B6 and B2 nourish the skin and ensure a beautiful complexion. Black cumin also contains plenty of provitamin A and biotin, which promote metabolism and thus keep skin, hair and nails healthy. The vitamins ensure a better complexion and can also help against wrinkles. Black cumin oil is also used in cultural circles to relieve chronic complaints such as neurodermatitis and acne.
