Multiple studies support efficacy of cold-pressed black cumin seed oil for topical applications

Cosmetic and personal beauty care ingredient manufacturer TriNutra has produced a cold-pressed black cumin seed oil ingredient, B’utyQuin, which has been shown in a recent clinical trial​ to have the potential to improve and protect skin and scalp health. The ingredient is “a cold-pressed black seed oil (BSO) standardized to 3% thymoquinone, the key phytonutrient, with low free fatty acids (<2%) to maintain its purity, quality, and stability​,” described Dr. Liki von-Oppen Bezalel, Business Development Director at TriNutra. 

As detailed on the TriNutra website, the potential benefits of B’utyQuin are numerous and include “boosting mitochondrial functions that slowdown with age, optimizing and improving cell respiration and energy production, improving metabolism resulting in more water molecules formation and barrier restoration, and improving the action of antioxidant enzymes and scavenge free radicals​.” 

About the ingredient, Dr. von-Oppen Bezalel shared that “B’utyQuin has been shown in in vitro and clinically to possess antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and mitochondrial functionality improvement properties to improve and protect skin and scalp health​.” 

To learn more about B’utyQuin, including the research and studies into its efficacy as a cosmetic ingredient, CosmeticsDesign spoke to Dr. von-Oppen Bezalel for her insights. 

Microbiome support studies

To establish B’utyQuin’s efficacy in supporting “the maintenance of a healthy skin and gut microbiome via anti-bacterial and antifungal activity against pathogens​,” said Dr. von-Oppen Bezalel, an in-vitro study​ was conducted which “investigated four black seed oil products from different origins with varying levels of thymoquinone and free fatty acid content​.” As detailed in the study, “efforts to find alternatives to antibiotics for the treatment of various pathological conditions are constantly ongoing​,” and “the development of antibiotic resistant microbial strains makes the efforts even more challenging​.”
