African women have had a skin care secret for centuries. Now thanks to our friends at The Leakey Collection, the word is out! Marula oil, a natural oil that is extracted from the nut of the Marula fruit, has a high concentration of antioxidants and omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids. 100% natural and sustainably sourced in Kenya, it is exactly what your skin needs.
Here are four reasons why:
Have you read what’s in your bottle of moisturizer lately? Let us guess…you can’t pronounce half of the ingredients. Choosing natural alternatives is often in your best interest, especially when it comes to what you put on your skin (which is, after all, your largest organ). The Marula oil from the Leakey Collection is 100% natural, 100% sustainable, and 100% fair trade. What’s not to love?
Reduces Signs of Aging.
Because Marula oil is chock full of antioxidants and omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids, it is a very effective addition to your anti-aging skin care routine. Not even highly coveted Argan oil can compare.
Got Acne? No Problem!
Because your skin absorbs this natural oil so much quicker than other moisturizers, it’s perfect for those who battle breakouts. It is also helpful in healing blemishes faster because of its superior hydration properties, as well as potentially suppressing the growth of acne-causing bacteria. Although it seems counter-intuitive to add oil to already oily skin, it’s proven to be non- comedogenic.
If you’ve spent a long day in the sun, recently applied a purifying mask or gotten a chemical peel, or even if you have a minor burn or scar, Marula oil’s unique properties can help soothe and heal your skin.
We are so excited that the word is out and Marula oil is no longer a secret. So what are you waiting for? Add this fair trade, sustainably sourced and all natural product to your daily skin care routine soon. Just be sure to tell us how you like it!
