Common uses: Marula oil is a very popular, all purpose carrier oil. It is used by manufacturers (particularly as a conditioning agent in hair care products), aromatherapists, and massage therapists.
Marula oil is one of Africa's greatest skin care oils. It is rich in anti-oxidants and oleic acid making it an extremely stable cosmetic oil. Its high content of palmitic acid creates a protective coating on the surface of the skin making it beneficial for dry skin sufferers. It absorbs quickly, hydrates the skin, helps reduce redness, reduces trans-epidermal water loss and increases smoothness of the skin. Use Marula oil in formulations for dry, damaged skin and moisturising hair treatments.
Consistency: Typical and characteristic of carrier oils
Absorption: Absorbs into skin at average speed, slight oil feeling left on skin.
