Cubeb essential oil is derived from the cubebs plant, which mostly grows in Java and Sumatra. For this reason, cubebs are known by many names. Cubeb (Piper cubeba), also known as Java pepper, or tailed pepper, or Hindi is a plant in genus Piper, cultivated for its fruit and essential oil.
Skin care: Cubeb essential oil also helps to protect our vulnerable and sensitive skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun that cause dark spots and premature signs of aging. One of the key ways that this oil helps to target and improve skin is by warding off the signs of aging. It does this because it has such a high level of antioxidants. These antioxidants do a tremendous job of protecting the cells that can often be damaged by the oxidation that the skin suffers from the environment, toxins and the sun.
