What is Ribes Nigrum Seed Oil: It Is commonly known as Black Currant Oil. This oil is extracted from the black currant seeds. 

Why we use it: Oil produced from black currant seed contains 11-15% omega-3 Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA) 13-17% omega-6 Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) and one of the few plant oils containing Stearidonic Acid (SDA). The rich vitamins in it help to treat dry, splitting or thinning hair promoting softness, strength and healthy growth. In addition the anti-inflammatory properties of black currant can help improve symptoms of psoriasis, like the itchiness and scaly patches of skin 

Other benefits: Black currant is rich in gamma-linolenic acid, or GLA, which is an omega-6 fatty acid that can help reduce inflammation and support your health in many other ways. Additionally, it is also loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, and also packs a powerful punch in terms of its abundant antioxidants. Vitamin C and anthocyanins are two particularly important types of antioxidants in black currant which can promote healthy aging by fighting free radicals and oxidative damage to cells.
