I have used this oil in my conditioning shampoo bar at 4% of total oil and is working very good! My customer also love the shampoo bar so much. I also apply this oil to my face directly after washing it and I never noticed oily/greasy feeling. Instead, my face gets moisturized very good.

Okay, so I've been adding this into a facial oil blend at about 10% and noticed that it felt really heavy. Because the description says that this oil absorbs quickly into the skin, I assumed it was one of the other oils I added. After testing on my arm, it turns out that abyssinian oil DOES NOT absorb quickly into the skin. It's actually quite heavy. It took about twice as long to lose the I-have-oil-on-my-arm look compared to the organic soya bean oil also from NDA. BUT, it does absorb very quickly into the hair and makes it look nice and shiny, not greasy at all. It does a really nice job at softening the skin, but I think it would be better to use it in an oil cleanser, masks, body oils and hair oils only. It might be okay at less than 5% in facial oils if you have a high percentage of rosehip, hazelnut or other "dry oil".

Great oil, absorbs quickly, really keeps skin from getting dry. Works in blends for hair, face, lips and body. Completely odorless and colourless and it doesn't irritate sensitive skin.
