Why it works
Our products work so well because we’ve learnt how to make the most of Black Seed Oil to help repair, restore and protect skin.
A wave of new research is being done into the benefits of Black Seed oil and its main anti-inflammatory component, Thymoquinone (TQ). As the scientific community becomes aware of its tremendous potential, we are beginning to learn the following:
HELPS acne, eczema and psoriasis
Many skin problems, including psoriasis, eczema, acne, and keratosis Polaris, are ultimately caused by inflammation. Black Seed oil and TQ offer powerful relief against inflammation and reduce the symptoms of many skin problems.
REPAIRS damaged skin
Black seed oil promotes thicker collagen fibres, more connective tissue and greater skin thickness. Black seed oil also improves wound healing, through its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. It also improves the appearance of skin patches caused by vitiligo (a long-term condition where pale white patches develop on skin).
SOOTHES itchy skin
Itchy skin is often caused by inflammation – for example, in atopic dermatitis. The anti-inflammatory effects of black seed oil and TQ help soothe the itch while, nourishing oils such as argan oil and jojoba oil help repair inflamed skin.
PROTECTS against ageing
“Inflammaging” describes ageing induced by chronic underlying inflammation. Black seed contains anti-inflammatory compounds such as thymoquinone and alpha-pinene, which help reduce inflammaging, including damage from UVA radiation.
