Sesame oil is an excellent skin oil. The oil absorbs well, acts purifying and the contained fat byproducts protect the skin from premature ageing. Sesame oil is a good carrier of active ingredients and is able to transport them deep into the skin tissue.
Sesame oil has a light SPF factor and is popular for use in sunscreens. Sesame oil nourishes dry skin that is badly circulated. In Ayurveda sesame oil is used as a massage oil and for detox externally and internally.
