You’ve probably heard of Argan oil, but there’s another A-name making waves in the skincare industry: Abysinnian oil. Also known as crambe seed oil, this lightweight, golden oil is gaining recognition for everything it can do for your complexion. Here’s what makes it so great:
Abysinnian oil is a sustainable choice. Let’s face it: not every friend to your skin is also a friend to the planet. Packaging aside, many mainstream skincare brands hurt our planet with the toxic chemicals they leach into our waterways. Or, the ingredients that comprise these products aren’t grown in an environmentally-friendly way.
On the other hand, abyssinian oil is sourced from Brasscica Abyssinica, a small white flower native to Ethiopia that’s known for its gentleness on the earth. This flower has a short growing period, doesn’t need a lot of water, and nourishes the soil it grows in, rather than depleting it. So you can reap the oil’s benefits without guilt.
It’s uniquely nourishing. Abyssinian oil contains a distinctive combination of ingredients that are beneficial for your skin. It has a high concentration of unsaturated C22 fatty acids, omega 3 and 6, several B vitamins, and vitamins A and C. We also love that it comes packed with Vitamin E, which is excellent for fighting inflammation.
Abysinnian oil is easy to use. This oil doesn’t oxidize as easily as many other oils, which means that you can hold on to it for a little longer than average (or accidentally expose it to a little bit of heat), and it will still be potent. For this reason, it’s also less likely to turn into a sensitizer or allergen that will hurt your skin.
Abyssinian oil is also lightweight, meaning it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy on your skin. (You can also use it as a spray, if you prefer.) Yet despite its light feel, it’s deeply hydrating and absorbs into your skin easily. Win-win!
This oil also works well in hair and is often used as a replacement for silicon in natural products. So feel free to rub a small drop between your palms and apply it to unruly split ends. Its faint woodsy scent won’t compete with the scent of your perfume or shampoo.
It works for just about everyone. Whether you’re acne-prone, fighting wrinkles, or both, abyssinian oil is a good choice. It mimics your natural skin barrier, which helps to moderate oil. This means if your skin is on the dry side, abyssinian oil can help to promote a healthy amount of oil for moisturized skin. On the other hand, it can also help to balance out too-oily skin.
This oil contains erucic acid, which locks in moisture, but it’s not comedogenic, which means it won’t clog your pores and promote acne.
At the same time, abyssinian oil also contains linoleic and linolenic acids, which help skin regenerate and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Abyssinian oil works best when it’s combined with other powerhouse ingredients, which is why we’ve used it in two of our core products: the Yuki-Ona Facial and the D.B.T. Baba Yaga Siberian Cold Cream .
Yuki-Ona combines the nourishing power of abyssinian oil with the exfoliating berries to refine skin and leave a lasting glow. Then DBT Baba Yaga evens your complexion, shrinks pores, and goes to work on signs of aging. We recommend grabbing both to see the full potential of abyssinian oil at work (and to get a non-stop glow).
Mila (pronounced 'mee-luh') is mother of three, wife, and founder of Wild Ice, an all-natural cold-preserved skincare line dedicated to bringing the best of care to women everywhere.

I tried Wild Ice after a friend recommended it and I asked her what she uses because her skin looks amazing! So far, I LOVE the products! They feel, smell and work fantastic!
This is a lovely cream—wonderfully soothing and hydrating. It is a winner!—And makes my skin feel soft and look dewy. Love all the products from Wild Ice!
I’ve been using Cryo-C for about a month. To my thinking, my skin has been looking less splotchy and more luminous! I think my skin might be getting addicted to this stuff!
I am so glad I found you. Thank you for making such awesome products!!!
Do you happen to sell travel sets?
I really love all the products I’m using from Wild Ice. After about 3 weeks I’m seeing and feeling a difference. The cold cream therapy particularly feels cool and moisturizing. I’m so glad I gave these products a try.
Before starting this system, I had these patches of skin on my forehead that would peel off, but come right back. They are gone. Cancelled my dermatology appointment!
I never thought I would enjoy a toner before... I used to think they were rather pointless, didn't work, and difficult to apply since most the product gets absorbed in a cotton ball or hands. I've tried a handful of toners, but they left my face sticky, or didn't work that well. But Ms. Gala?? She is refreshing, crispy, clean, and actually does balance your face, to my surprise. The atomizer spray is perfect and doesn't waste product. I will definitely repurchase this!
Wild Ice has made me relearn what skincare is: I've exited the world of low-performance, filler packed products and entered the world of these thoughtfully made creations that truly care for my skin.
DBT Baba Yaga my favorite of the line! It's just what my skin needed. The consistency is delightful, my skin feels soothed the entire day, and I've noticed an improvement in the texture and feel of my skin. The dispenser is a little forceful but I've learned how to use it better.
I've (25 y/o) used this for about three weeks and have noticed a real difference. When looking at other products, always thought "brightness" and vit-C products were about making your skin lighter, and removed dark spots. Sounds great, but never seemed significant to me... But then I tried the Cryo-C and finally understand how it works!! I noticed results after the three week mark. My skin looks and feels much fresher with no congestion - that's the best way I can describe it! Totally worth it and it makes me happy. :-) I wear this only at night before bed and it feels so nice and lightweight. I personally really love the smell as well!
Love this cleanser! Have been using it for almost a year now. Can be used for oily or dry skin too. So glad I made the switch to all wild ice products.
Thank you sweet Mila. I love your products so MUCH!!! Hope to see you soon at the Rosemary farmers market!! Much LOVE!
This is my 2nd order….I did try another product and my face and skin are not as good as when I used Wild Ice!! You can truly tell a difference!! I’m 60 years old and love how this makes my skin look and feel!!!
The BMeltee cleanser is very mild, but my face has benefited from using it as part of my ritual. And for Gaeas Gala, I never used a toner before. At least consistently. From the positive reaction of my skin, it is definitely part of my ritual. I can’t say enough great things about CryoC either! When I first applied it, it seems like orange colored bio oil. But talk about my skin drinking it up instead it looking like my face is an oil well site! My complexion has become dewy! insofar as the Baba Yaga cream, which is a must, I’ve only had one other moisturizer beneficially affect my skin and that moisturizer comes with a pricey price tag. All in all, I’m pleased with my ritual of the products, my skin loves it, and I will definitely be a long time customer! 5 stars! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
I have been using the whole Wild Ice facial cleansing system for a couple of years. I get compliments on my skin routinely. The products have made an incredible difference in my skin. The products smell and feel wonderful.
