About the Baobab
Baobab is the well-known name given to the trees of the nine species of the Adansonia family. It is one of the most characteristic trees of Africa. It is sometimes called the upside-down tree because it looks like it is growing roots upwards.
The seed is cold pressed to produce this oil. The oil is a deep golden yellow, quite dense and has a charismatic aroma. It is an incredible moisturiser and is most commonly used for skin and hair care. It is one of the few oils that can be added in its raw state in cosmetic products. Baobab seed oil is one of the most prominent oils from Africa.
The Adansonia trees have thick trunks and is usually the widest in the middle. These trees store water in their trunks and can survive many years of drought conditions. They have the ability to live in excess of a thousand years. Its fruit resembles elongated coconuts but the taste is somewhat tart. The fruit is high in many nutrients and is of significant nutritional importance.
