Cyperus esculentus product of controlled organic farming - inspection BE-BIO-01 Tiger Nut oil is obtained by cold pressing the tubers of the plant. It has a pleasant smell and is suitable for both external and internal use. It is rich in oleic acid, linoleic acid and palmitic acid. It also contains vitamin E and phytosterols. The latter are the source of a soothing power that eczematous skin or skin prone to psoriasis will appreciate. As a hair care product, it is ideal for fine and frizzy hair. Its constituents and pleasant aroma make it a natural cosmetic with moisturising properties that is particularly suitable for dry skin lacking elasticity. Another notable property is that it slows down hair growth. In this case, it should be applied daily to the depilated areas, for example. This characteristic is based on the thousand-year-old use of it by North African women. In culinary use, it brings to raw preparations its particular oriental aroma, evocative of dried fruit.
