Abyssinian oil, sometimes referred to as Crambe oil, contains a wide variety of restorative properties that are making waves in the beauty industry. Silhouette, Sainte Nèl's overnight cuticle oil features Abyssinian oil because of all its wonderful properties. Let's dig deeper below.
Abyssinian Oil For Nail Care
The oil is derived from an oleaginous crop called Crambe Abyssinica and is unlike other oils on the market today. Originating from the highlands of East Africa, the oil is extracted from the plant using a mechanical process, careful not to dispel its rich nutrients. While the oil is named after Abyssinia, the crop is also known to be cultivated in the Mediterranean region in recent years.
Abyssinian oil is rich in Vitamin E, meaning it’s well-suited to treat dry cuticle and nail beds. As a nail oil, when applied, it provides nourishment to problem areas by strengthening and preventing breakage.
Another loverly property of Abyssinian oil is that it’s lightweight and non-greasy. Are you sick of oils that leave your hand dripping? Well this is not that! The clear, light oil spreads effortlessly and is easily absorbed into your epidermal tissue, the outermost layer of the skin, where it smooths wrinkles and nourishes dry, dehydrated skin. Quick absorption means you can get back to what your day.
In addition to its nourishing properties, sourcing this oil is environmentally friendly, as the crop does not require much water as similar plants. Abyssinian provides consumers with a friendly alternative to other oils which species are diminishing or endangered, such as Argon oil.
If you are at the beginning of your natural nail care journey, we highly recommend you start with a high quality cuticle oil, like Silhouette. Your nail bed is the bedrock (pun intended) of your nail care routine. Make sure you give it the attention it deserves.
