Organic and Conventional Marula Seed Oil

Our Marula Seed oil is sourced from Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

Southern Africa is the natural home of the Marula tree.

It is an incredible oil obtained from the Marula tree (Sclerocarya birrea) and is native to Southern Africa. It has been used as a natural remedy for centuries to treat many health conditions.

Its oil is an effective moisturiser for dry or ageing skin. It is beneficial for treating acne, smoothening, softening fine lines, and preventing stretch marks. Its use in hair treatment is legendary.

Enzymes like elastase and collagenase accelerate the signs of ageing. Marula oil prevents the skin from losing its elasticity by inhibiting its activity. It may help fight the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dryness and dullness. It can also boost the natural ability of your skin to regenerate and repair itself.

Marula oil is rich in nutrients, antioxidants, and fatty acids. Thus, it may play a role in keeping the scalp healthy and boosting healthy hair growth. It may help nourish your hair from root to tip without making it overly greasy, which is beneficial for dry, curly, or brittle hair.

Marula oil is a lightweight and antioxidant-rich oil that hails from the nuts and kernels in marula trees. The light-yellow oil has a faint nutty scent and is fast absorbing. It also has cellular regeneration, hydrating, occlusive, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. The amino acids found in marula oil (L-arginine and glutamic acid) help restore hydration and have anti-ageing properties, which is why it’s located in many beauty products. It helps neutralise free radicals from pollution and sun exposure.
