Marula Oil, Virgin, Unrefined
INCI: Sclerocarya Birrea Oil
Extraction Method: Cold Pressed
Source: South Africa
Extracted from the nuts of the Marula tree, this is a rare oil that has a fragrant floral, nutty aroma along with powerful properties, including protective antioxidants – in fact, while it is similar to the much more famous Moroccan Argan oil, it actually contains 60 percent more antioxidants.
Anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, Marula oil is a multipurpose tonic that can reportedly reverse photo damage, boost cellular activity, aid in building collagen, protect against environmental toxins, and support the health of the skin and hair. While it’s one of the more expensive oils, a little bit goes a long way, so it will last quite a while. This oil is an exotic addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, and hair care products.
Price is per 8 oz bottle.
