Abyssinian Oil has been shown to consist of 55-60% erucic acid, a rare long-chain fatty acid. It has a unique molecular structure that can’t be found in any other naturally occurring substance. It contains a very high percentage of unsaturated C22 omega-9 fatty acids and an abundance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 acids, as well as Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, and E. It has a very high resistance to oxidation, which means these nourishing ingredients retain their highest potency for a longer time.
