David C. Fondots, Extracts-Unlimited LLC, says, “Our personal care and cosmetic industry has had a successful history of acquiring and gaining from many natural and plant-based materials that were first utilized in the nutraceutical area. A few examples that immediately stand out are the group of vitamins: C, D, E, etc., as well as many botanical extracts and oils such as aloe vera, green tea, chamomile and many others. These can be termed ‘crossover’ ingredients; that is, crossing over from ingestible to topical usage. Now, an ancient product used extensively in Middle Eastern and Ayurvedic traditions is currently available to formulation chemists in organic and conventional versions, black cumin seed oil (Nigella sativa seed oil).”
