Osmia Organics Founder, Sarah Villafranco happens to be an MD, a totally funny lady, and, incidentally, brilliant at formulating natural skin care products. That makes me EXTREMELY excited to get the lowdown on Black Cumin Seed Oil from her—especially since she uses it in one of her products.
What are the skin-loving benefits of black cumin seed oil?
What product(s) includes this ingredient?
What results can you expect to see?
What customers are saying about it…
Bonus question: Name one product that you can’t live without. (Just for fun, cuz we all want to know!)
(Not sure why I started referring to myself in third person, but let’s just go with it!)
caprylic/capric triglyceride (fractionated coconut oil), olive squalane, aleurites molaccana (kukui) oil, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) oil*, macadamia integrifolia (macadamia nut) oil*, rosa rubiginosa (rosehips) seed oil*, vitus vinifera (grapeseed) oil*, wildcrafted butyrospermum parkii (shea) oil, schisandra sphenanthera (schisandra fruit) CO2, euterpe oleracea (acai) oil, nigella sativa (black seed) oil*, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) CO2 extract*, GMO-free vitamin E oil, and a proprietary blend of organic and wild-harvested essential oils
I’d like to point out that rather than listing the elusive term “fragrance,” Sarah chooses this honest phrase: “a proprietary blend of organic and wild-harvested essential oils,” so the consumer would know what’s in there while still protecting her formula. YES!!
For more research about black cumin seed oil, I found these posts to be particularly helpful: ‘Black Seed: The Remedy for Everything but Death‘ (a bit extreme, but still good), and general research on nigella sativa (aka black seed).
