African Baobab trees are dubbed the ‘Tree of Life’ and are known for their exceptional long life. Some trees have been known to live up to 500-600 years. Some of the biggest trees, with girths measuring over 43 meters, are considered to be over 2500 years old. Baobab Oil is cold pressed from the seed of the fruit, which is high in vitamins A, D, E and F (essential fatty acids).
Baobab helps to preserve skin elasticity and aids in preventing stretch marks. It encourages regeneration of skin cells without clogging pores. It softens wrinkles, diminishes blemishes and scars, and calms irritated, sun damaged skin. It can also be used to strengthen and moisturize dry and damaged hair.
Baobab Oil is suitable for all skin types and is great as a face moisturizer and body massage oil. As a body moisturizer, wet hands with water add a few drops of Baobab Oil then rub into the skin on arms and legs. You can also add a few drops to your regular face and body creams.
