Abyssinian Oil is a natural seed oil with an ultra light, non-greasy skin feel. It has a unique molecular structure not found in any other naturally occurring substance. It contains a high percentage of unsaturated C22 fatty acids, making it highly resistant to oxidation. Abyssinian oil is liquid at room temperature and is heat stable. As a lipid seed oil, it is easily incorporated in any water-in-oil or oil-in-water formula via the oil phase. It offers high spreadability with no tack. This oil is non-GMO plant derived with a mild, pleasant odor. It is biodegradable and non-toxic and has not been tested on animals.
Method of Extraction: No solvents are used in the manufacture of this product. The oil is removed from the seed using a mechanical crushing process, without the use of an external heat source. It is then neutralized, lightened in color and deodorized in order to produce the final refined oil.
