Black Cumin Seed Carrier Oil is rich in Linolenic Acid (Omega-6) and Linoleic Acid (Omega-3), making it an effective emollient when used in place of a carrier oil in skin care and hair care formulations. Black Cumin Seed Oil is suitable for use on acne-prone, dry, sensitive, and mature skin types, and is safe enough to apply directly onto the skin. Use Black Cumin Seed Carrier Oil alone or blended with your favorite Essential Oils.
