Mango & Nigella Oil
Fragrance: Maddeningly Mango
Ripe mangoes (with peel) are rich in beta-carotene, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Nigella sativa (black seed) oil contains thymoquinone, which has been found to be an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound. Both ingredients come together to make your skin glowing, supple and healthy.
Ingredients: Red palm oil, sesame seed oil, cocoa butter, castor oil, distilled water, lye, whole ripe mango, Nigella Sativa (black seed) oil, skin-safe fragrance & colourant.
Natural ingredients may also cause allergic reactions. Handmade & hand cut. Allow the bar to dry between uses. Bar weight is 80 grams.
- Cocoa pods growing in Costa Rica. Cocoa Butter is another unsung hero in our apothecary, along with rice, ginger, onion and turmeric. It is present in all Old Sage soaps and has the important job of keeping the bar firm.
- A light drizzle refreshes tender green mangos on a tree in Intramuros, Manila.
- An illustration of Nigella Hispania in Favourite Flowers of Garden and Greenhouse by Edward Step published 1897. Though it is called Nigella it is not Black Seed. Black seed is Nigella Sativa and is often erroneously called black cumin or black sesame. It has been used since ancient times for healthy skin.
(NB: The mangos in the photographs are not Harumanis which are grown in Perlis and are green even after they ripen.)
