Organic Marula Oil is a true African anti-ageing wonder oil. It contains significant amounts of Omega 9 Essential Fatty Acids, Vitamins and Anti-oxidants. These help stimulate collagen production, giving it rich moisturising properties. It is readily absorbed by the skin and has been found to significantly improve skin smoothness and hydration. Also, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Marula oil comes from the tree Sclerocarya birrea. It is a medium-sized tree, indigenous to the woodland of Southern Africa, the Sudano-Sahelian range of West Africa, and Madagascar. The fruit of the marula tree is collected from the wild by members of rural communities on whose land the trees grow. This harvest and sale of fruit is an important income to poor rural people. The fruit is delivered to processing plants where fruit pulp, pips, kernels and kernel oil are extracted. The produce is stored for processing throughout the year.
In order to get the most benefit of Marula Oil try to find a product that is cold-pressed and is not refined or otherwise chemically treated in any way, and has a light yellow-brown colour and a slight nutty aroma. In the market there are cheap Marula Oils are often refined, which removes beneficial compounds from the oil resulting in a less effective oil.
