Words by Anny Schneider

This Nigella vegetable oil (also called black cumin) is extracted from the seeds of this pretty stylized flower.

In the North African countries where it has been used since Antiquity. it is also called the blessed seed and is even consumed internally.

With a high content of mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids: oleic, linoleic and palmitic, it easily penetrates to the dermis.

Thanks to its antihistamine properties, it treats all types of allergies, including topical ones.

It is effective for dry and very sensitive skin and also treats acne, eczema and hives.

Not very comedogenic and rather sensitive to oxidation.

⇒ Because of its dark coloring and its rarity, it is preferable to use it diluted in other vegetable oils.


Vegetable oil of organic Nigella coming from India,100% natural and cold pressed.


Nigelle oil is very weakly comedogenic.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
