Crambe abyssinica is a native plant from Ethiopia. Oil is extracted from the Crambe seeds either through mechanical pressing or using organic solvents. Here at Askalite, we only use non-GMO oil extracted mechanically to retain the phytochemical composition of this unique plant.
Abyssinian oil is comprised of monounsaturated fatty acids (erucic, palmitoleic, oleic, gadoleic and nervonic acids) and antioxidants like phytosterols, tocopherols, carotenoids and chlorophyll.
