Non-greasy, easily absorbed and ultra hydrating, Boabab Oil has provided superior moisturisation for people in the dry Savannah region for many generations. You too can now benefit from this underestimated oil.
A GOLD ELIXIR THAT’S PERFECT FOR AFRICAN SKIN
The Savannah region of Africa is very dry. That’s because it’s classified as a grassland, which means very little rain falls in those parts. But when it does rain, the land brings to life many flowers, and the grounds becomes very fertile. The Baobab tree, scientifically known as the Adansonia Digitata, is right at home in these parts. Because it’s such a tough and big tree, locals have been using it to build shelter, make ropes and even clothing from it. And, it retains so much moisture, its natural oils also serve as a natural moisturiser for the whole body.
HOW BAOBAB OIL IS PRODUCED
The kernels from the fruits created by the Baobab tree are very tough, and hard to crack. These days, the oil can be extracted through cold-pressing, which is a technologically-advanced process. But to make sure that it’s harvested ethically, the Baobab fruit pulp is separated from the seeds, which are washed thoroughly by hand. They are then laid out to dry naturally in the sun, and then pressed to produce the gold oil.
