Sesame oil: so many benefits for the skin!

The benefits of sesame oil for the face

Extracted from the seeds of the sesame plant, sesame oil is a popular cooking ingredient. Rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, it has a unique, subtle flavor. But it also has many benefits for the skin, which is why we’ve included it in several Absolution products.

Sesame oil: antioxidant properties

Rich in Vitamins A and E, sesame oil has potent antioxidant properties. When applied topically to the skin, it can reduce oxidative stress caused by environmental factors such as UV rays, pollution and toxins. Oxidative stress can damage cells and tissues by releasing free radicals – and this can lead to the appearance of wrinkles.

If you’re looking for a way to prevent wrinkles, you could try regularly using skincare products that contain sesame oil as part of your pro-aging routine. By including this botanical oil in your beauty regimen, your skin can enjoy its benefits: promoting cell renewal, improving suppleness, slowing premature skin aging, etc.

Sesame oil: antibacterial properties

Sesame oil contains chemical constituents that destroy or inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria on the skin surface. This makes it an effective oil for blemish-prone skin. Take advantage of its antibacterial powers to detox your skin and rid it of complexion-dulling impurities. Sesame oil is gentle and soothing. It revitalizes and cares for irritated and sensitive skin, and helps to get it glowing again!

Sesame oil: anti-inflammatory properties

Sesame oil can reduce inflammation, swelling and tightness. It contains several phenolic compounds, which give it anti-inflammatory properties. Whether it’s applied pure or incorporated into a cosmetic product, sesame oil is able to cleanse, soften and regenerate the skin. You can use this botanical oil in the evening before going to bed, to remove toxins and impurities that have built up during the day. Sesame oil also contains unsaturated fatty acids (omega 3, 6 and 9), which have benefits for dry and irritated skin. By deeply nourishing, it works to restore suppleness and luminosity within just a few applications.

A non-comedogenic oil

Sesame oil has a low rating on the comedogenic scale (which ranges from 0 to 5), which means that it doesn’t clog pores. Moreover, its anti-inflammatory properties may also help to fight acne. However, sesame oil is not sufficient alone to care for your skin. It needs to be combined with other active ingredients in order to cleanse and detoxify the skin properly.
