Nigella, also known as black cumin seed oil, is a legendary beauty secret of Egyptian goddess Cleopatra, and it's no wonder - it contains a key component known as Thymoquinone that helps to reduce pigmentation, age spots and evens out your skin tone to make it bright and radiant.
This oil also acts to balance out oil production and sebum, thereby clearing out clogged pores overtime.
Recommended for use together with our Brighten Clay Mask to balance out skin tone and fight against the effects of hyper pigmentation.
As a moisturiser: Pump 3-4 drops of oil into your palm and activate it with body heat by rubbing your hands together for 5 seconds. Gently press your palms onto your face and neck.
As a facial supplement: Pump 1-2 drops and mix the oil into your moisturiser. You can also use it before applying it as a foundation to your beauty regime.
With the Brighten Mask: Pump 1-2 drops of oil into the clay mask, and mix with some water into a smooth paste. For an added boost, add in a dash of lemon. Take note that this is highly acidic and should be used with caution. Avoid using more than recommended. Less is more!
Our Nigella oil is 100% unrefined, certified Cosmos-Organic and cold-pressed on a farm in the South of France. Cold-pressed oils are made by extracting oil from seeds or nuts without adding chemicals or heat, and therefore tend to be safer for skin use.
This facial oil does not contain any added fragrances nor essential oils, and is safe for use during pregnancy.
Comedogenic Rating: 2
The comedogenic rating simply measures how likely a facial oil will clog your pores. It ranges from 0 (little or no chance of clogging) to 5 (rich and high likelihood of clogging). Anyone who is acne-prone should avoid highly comedogenic oils, while those with drier skin types will need the extra richness from oils towards the middle of the scale to bring moisture to their skin barrier.
As with all products you are using for the first time, it is advisable to do a patch test to check for allergies.
- Apply a small amount of oil into the inside of your forearm.
- Cover the area with a bandage and leave it alone.
- Check the area again in 24 hours. If you don’t see any redness, swelling, or other irritation, the product should be safe to use. You may now add the oil to your routine.
