Pure Marula Oil
What is it? Pure Marula Oil is an antioxidant-rich face oil that contains single origin, cold pressed Marula oil, especially wonderful for dull, dry,balanced, mature and sensitive skin.
Notes from the Curator: This is an extraordinarily high quality, highly stable Marula oil extracted from wild growing Marula trees in South Africa. Julia and Craig, the founders sustainbly source a South African heirloom variety that is smaller in size but richer in antioxdiants and other nutrients.The oil is extracted from the Marula seeds using patented supercritical extraction methods to ensure quality, nutrient density and efficacy.
Let’s get Nerdy: The Marula tree has a history that dates back thousands of years and is known as the Tree of marriage and is a symbol of fertility. Marula Oil has been used for generations by the indigenous people of Africa to moisturize their skin but also as an edible oil by the San people of Southern Africa. It is rich in antioxidants and many skin benefitting micro-nutrients including Omega 9.
