TriNutra (Harrison, NY) launched B’utyQuin black seed oil for cosmetic formulations, offering anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits through TriNutra’s breed of Nigella sativa, standardized to 3% thymoquinone.

According to the company, research revealed B’utyQuin’s positive effects on mitochondrial functions were expressed in ATP production, as well as linked to efficient energy production, and improved respiration and metabolism of sugars and fat. It also helps to significantly soothe and relieve scalp scaling, redness and itch, leading to reduction in scaling (dandruff) and excessive skin oils, while also addressing other dermatological challenges.

“When we age, the mitochondria suffer a decrease in enzymatic activity leading to reduction in energy production and less efficient respiration and metabolism,” said Morris Zelkha, CEO of TriNutra, in a press release. “By addressing skin aging at a cellular level, B’utyQuin is able to better help the body’s natural functions to keep the skin healthy, vibrant, smooth and strong.”

B’utyQuin, when used as a face cream, can offer better hydration, luminosity, firmness, and elasticity of the skin. As a scalp serum, the ingredient has been shown to soothe the scalp and relieve redness, scaling, and itch. In addition to creams and serums, B’utyQuin can also be used in oils and lotions, among other applications for face, body, and hair.
