We are not scientists, but we collected some of the information about Black Seed and would love to share with you the modern knowledge about this ancient ingredient. We welcome you to go to original sources quoted here to learn even more and 'geek out' on research about Black Seed Oil.

Black Seed contains fixed oils (palmitic, stearic and oleic acids), proteins, alkaloids (compounds with antibacterial, anticancer and other properties), saponins (with anti-carcinogenic, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory, properties) and volatile oil (essential oil). The most thrilling compound in Black Seed is thymoquinone or TQ for short. It has been studied and shows a lot of potential to enhance anti-cancer drugs. It is natural. It is non-toxic to healthy cells and can be ingested by humans and easily absorbed. We are not medical professionals and are not adverstising the use of Black Seed Oil internally, but we would love to tell you all we can gather about this incredible natural ingredient. At Katari Beauty, we are only promoting Black Seed for its properties related to clear and healthy skin.

What Black Seed Oil is praised for...


Antioxidants in Black Seed Oil protect cells against free radicals, which play role in cancers and aging (skin aging). Antioxidants, prvent oxidation - one of main causes of skin cell damage.


Anti-inflammatory properties of Black Seed Oil are attributed to high concentration of Omega-3 fatty acids, known for their ability to disrupt inflammation in cells by sending messages to receptors in cells.


Black Seed possesses antibacterial properties and helps destroy harmful bacteria and its ability to grow and reproduce. This property is important when it comes to fighting acne naturally and inhibiting acne bacteria.


This property does not relate to skin - our largest organ, but does relate to the largest internal organ - liver. Ancient medical minds of Greek, Persia and Islamic worlds collected and shared knowledge about various herbs with hepatoprotective properties. As most modern treatments for liver are expensitve and in case of synthetic drugs might cause more damage, natural compounds that show promising benefits for liver are extremely intriguing for scientists.


Antimutagenic are compounds with properties that interfere with effects of DNA cell mutations, blocking and inhibiting mutagens 'dirty' work. Cancer researchers are very interested in natural and synthetic compounds with antimutagenic properties. TQ in Black Seed Oil has been linked and studied in connection with its ability to counteract effects of mutagens... So much promise for Black Seed!


Cancer is related to cell's mutations and inability to reproduce with structure void of chromosomal abnormalities. Scientists are taking a very close look at Black Seed, as a natural compound that can potentially prevent cell mutations and tumor (cancer) development. Antitumor is synonymous with anticancer. Black Seed Oil has shown ability in various studies to inhibit formation and growth of tumors.

with Black Seed Oil

Black Seed Oil can be used as or instead of your daily moisturizer. You can use it in the morning and in the evening. You can apply this oil on your entire face (and skin areas that need Black Seed's healing powers) or use it on only on areas that demand attention (like on areas of skin affected by eczema or dermatatis, on insect bites to reduce itching). When you use Black Seed as healing and moisturizing oil, we suggest using pH-balancing Rose Water (Roseau) before applying the oil. Hoba Oil is perfect to use daily ass your regular moisturizer if your have acne-prone skin or skin that needs healing from various skin conditions. And Argil Green Clay Masque 1-2 a week is a must to keep skin clear of blackheads, excess oils and blemishes.
