Words by Anny Schneider

This vegetable oil of Crambe penetrates the skin very quickly and is suitable for combination skin with an oily tendency.

Abyssinian oil provides a satiny texture to the skin and helps it to regenerate.

It also restores shine to dry hair and detangles the most frizzy hair.


This vegetable oil extracted from Abyssinian seeds from Canada, is 100% natural and first cold pressed.


This little-known non-comedogenic oil contains a high level of fatty acids: erucic, oleic and linoleic, which make it both moisturizing and protective, thanks to its velvety and non-greasy texture.

When applied to the skin in serums, creams, and oil-based facial cleansers, it hydrates and locks in moisture.

In hair care formulations, it restores shine and luster, conditions and diminishes brittle hair.

Suggestions for use
