Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil 
  • From vegetal origin, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil is a pale yellow oil  obtained by pressing the seeds of the sesame plant

  • As with all non-fragrant oils, sesame has moisturizing and emollient properties and can help prevent water loss from skin’s uppermost layers

  • Sesame oil has the following properties, which help to make it a beneficial oil for your skin:

    • Antioxidant. This means it has the ability to fight damage by free radicals, or unstable molecules that can harm the cellular structure of your skin
    • Antimicrobial. This means it can kill harmful microorganisms or stop their growth
    • Anti-inflammatory. This means it can reduce inflammation and swelling
  • Sesame oil also has a moderately low rating on the comedogenic scale. This unofficial database ranks different oils and butters by their pore-clogging properties
  • Because non-comedogenic oils don’t clog pores, sesame oil may work well on acne-prone skin
  • Sesame oil contains vitamin E, which can help protect skin cells from the damage caused by environmental factors, such as UV rays, pollution, and toxins
  • Sesame oil also contains several phenolic compounds, which give it its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These compounds include: Tocopherol, pinoresinol, sesamin, sesamolin, sesaminol, sesamol
  • Sesame oil is a natural source of omega-6 fatty acids, and its fatty acid profile helps ensure a healthy skin barrier by complementing skin’s natural supply of ceramides and lipids
