Baobab Oil

Even if you haven’t heard of baobab oil, you might recognize the tree it comes from. The baobab tree has a tall, thick trunk and looks like it’s upside down with its roots in the air. This fruit tree grows in the southern countries of Africa, such as Malawi, Kenya, and Madagascar. The scientific name for the baobab tree is Adansonia digitata. In Africa, people call it “the tree of life” and “pharmacy tree” because of its many uses, including for baobab oil. The Baobab tree is able to live for thousands of years and is renowned in Africa, its country of origin, for its beneficial properties. Extracted from the seeds of the baobab fruit the oil is abundant in essential fatty acids.

What are the benefits of baobab oil?

Baobab oil is generally known for its regenerative abilities. It is excellent for softening skin and helping heal any imperfections due to its antioxidants

  • Moisturizes and Protects all skin types

If you have oily, acne-prone skin, you might think that putting more oil on your face would make matters worse. However, baobab oil is actually good for oily skin. It’s lightweight and doesn’t clog pores, so it keeps your skin moisturized to prevent the production of excess oil that causes breakouts. Baobab oil is gentle enough to use on all skin types, even sensitive skin. It won’t cause irritation.

  • Nourishes and gives shine to dull dry hair

Baobab oil is infused with a mix of vitamins and fatty acids that can keep hair strong and healthy, no matter what texture it is. You can massage it into your scalp, leaving it overnight for soft, shiny strands or use it as a daily conditioner for frizz-free hair. If you’re looking for an extra-nourishing conditioner, try adding a few drops of baobab oil to your regular conditioner.

  • Rich in antioxidants

Free radicals are atoms that are unstable in the body and can cause damage to cells and accelerate aging. Antioxidants neutralize these free radicals, preventing them from damaging cells and causing aging.

  • Toning and restoring skin elasticity, preventing stretch marks

Collagen is a protein that makes up a third of the protein in your body. As we get older, collagen production slows down, which means it’s important to support skin with proper diet instead of poor diet and skin care. Baobab oil contains antioxidants that, when applied to skin, help to preserve collagen and keep it strong and glowing.

  • Regenerates the skin’s hydrolipidic film
  • Strenghtens brittle nails

Cuticles are important for maintaining strong nails. Keep your cuticles moisturized with a good cuticle oil like Baobab oil, which absorbs quickly and won’t make your fingers feel greasy. Dab a drop of this cuticle oil on your nail and massage it in. You’ll love how it makes your nails look!

  • Fights against skin aging

Your skin’s outermost layer—the barrier—helps to keep moisture in and the environment out. A healthy skin barrier keeps your skin moisturized, prevents dehydration, and keeps your skin smooth and soft. When you take care of your skin barrier, you’re helping to prevent aging and maintain a healthy glow. Some skin care products actually harm the skin barrier, but baobab oil nourishes it. Baobab oil is rich in vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps protect the skin from harmful free radicals and supports a healthy moisture barrier.
