Marula Oil is an all-natural, cold pressed, highly nutritious, light
textured oil. Hand harvested by women in village collectives from
the exotic fruit seed kernels of bio dynamic and drought resistant Marula
trees, indigenous to Southern Africa and Madagascar.
The geographic position on the west edge of Southern Africa gives rise to
certain climatic characteristics. The low rainfall and endless hours of
bright sunshine create the perfect environment - unlike any other in the
world - to produce exceptional growing conditions for the Marula trees to bear their annual fruit. This delicious fruit contains 4 times as much
Vitamin C as an orange. Marula leaves and bark have wonderful properties
but the skin care properties of natural Marula Oil are perhaps the best of
all. This healing oil is widely used for its medicinal benefits by Southern
African women and men and has been part of numerous beauty rituals for
centuries to protect the skin and hair from the harsh and dry weather
Today’s modern scientific research reveals and confirms the secrets of
Marula Oil. This multipurpose oil contains powerful antioxidants, high
concentrations of nutrients, minerals and essential fatty acids that
protect against environmental aggressors, reverse photodamage, boost
cellular activity, hydrate at the deepest levels and repair the skin.
The anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties of Marula Oil reduce
the need for preservatives. Marula Oil has a clear, pale, golden-brown
color with a pleasant sweet aroma.
