What are the benefits of black seed oil in skincare for our skin?
Containing over 100 vitamins and minerals, it’s an antioxidant powerhouse. “It has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties,” says dermatologist, cardiologist and founder of Meder Beauty Science, Dr Tiina Meder. It contains a few vitamins that you may already know too: vitamins A (retinol) B (niacinamide) and C (ascorbic acid), as well as amino acids and fatty acids. “The oil helps skin to retain moisture, maintain elasticity, and fight the damaging effects of free radicals, which can contribute to fine lines. Used in the right formulation, it can help clear blocked pores and control oil production, making it an option for battling breakouts,” she explains.
