Our organically crafted Marula Oil is extracted from the kernels (nuts) of the fruits of the wild growing Sclerocarya birrea trees [Family: Anacardiaceae] growing in the most pristine and open woodlands of Sub-Saharan Africa. Having earned the nicknames like The Elixir of Youth and The African Beauty Secret, Marula Oil has long been revered by the Southern African women who use it for diverse cosmetic applications to naturally soften, nourish and revitalise their skin and to promote hair growth.

The Marula fruit is about the size of a plum with a leathery skin that is bright butter yellow when if fully ripens. The flavorful juicy white flesh of the fruit surrounds a hard brown stone, inside which are the seeds that are so rich in oil that even a squeeze with the hand can release a rich yield. The fruit is not only popular among the African people but also with elephants which have been known to travel hundreds of miles to devour the fruit. The popular African liqueur Amarula is also derived from the marula fruit.


REPORTED BENEFITS AND USES

Widely used in topical and cosmetic applications, Marula Oil is known to support skin health, repair skin damage caused by pollutants, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes, facilitate wound healing and prevent skin from losing moisture. Being a light and non-comedogenic oil that exhibits anti-microbial properties, Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil is especially gentle, making it ideal for calming acne-prone skin. It's also effective at soothing itch when applied to damaged skin caused by eczema, psoriasis or dry skin.

Marula Oil contains a large percentage of monounsaturated fatty acids and natural antioxidants which makes it one of the most stable oils available. Being the richest plant source of Omega-9 fatty acids, Marula Oil works to protect the scalp against harmful bacteria and inflammation, to balance the scalp's natural oils without leaving a greasy residue, and to strengthen the hair strands against damage caused by effects of harsh weather.

This amazing oil is beneficial not only the skin and hairs, but also the communities that are producing it. Marula Oil has been a nature's gift that has contributed to rural and social economic development of African communities where it has empowered and uplifted women and provided a sustainable income for families in the tribal lands.
