Gaining popularity in cosmetic applications, Marula Oil has become a valued ingredient. It derives from the Marula tree, native to southern Africa. Locally, it has multiple traditional applications, and we desire it for its anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, fatty acids, and amino acid properties. Our oil is processed and refined to eliminate impurities before formulating with the other ingredients that followed the same strict process in order to guarantee the quality of the starting material.
So, what are the benefits of Marula Oil for our skin and hair?
Apart from hydrating the hair and skin, it can also reduce irritation and inflammation. Marula oil has antimicrobial properties that rid your skin of unwanted bacteria while nurturing your skin. It has 60% more antioxidants than most other oils. This oil can be beneficial for those with dry skin or acne-prone skin.
Controlled trials offer favorable conclusions, supporting it’s beneficial traits. “Marula oil rich in fatty acids exhibits moisturising, hydrating and occlusive properties. As the oil is non-irritating and provides a moisturising effect with moderate prevention of transepidermal water loss, average moisture retention properties, and noteworthy occlusive effects, its inclusion in cosmetic products based on its traditional use may be justified depending on the application.”(1)
Marula Oil is clearly a standout ingredient in our oil-based face cleanser. The product can be applied with moist or dry skin, lightly massaged to exfoliate, and let the skin absorb all the benefits, before being rinsed off with water. In synergy with other ingredients, such as ginger, Vitamin E, caffeine, safflower seed oil, black pepper, and others we have formulated a natural face wash that offers a whole new experience. Our Marula Oil and Ginger face wash will leave you feeling clean with reduced dryness.
