African Virgin Marula Oil
100% Organic & Cold-Pressed
Cold-pressed from kernels obtained from the fruits of the south African marula tree, this luxury oil offers hydration to hair, skin and nails, and is claimed to restore a radiant complexion. Our virgin marula oil is 100% organic, pure and completely unrefined in order to preserve its efficacy. Marula oil is packed with skin-loving phytonutrients which include:
Marula oil is largely composed of oleic (70—78%), palmitic (9-12%), stearic (5-8%) and linoleic (4-7%) acids, which account for the emollient and moisturising properties of the oil. Due to its high degree of mono-unsaturated fatty acids, marula oil has exceptional resistance to oxidation.
The amino acids present in marula oil, namely L-arginine and glutamic acid, help in restoring hydration and can also have anti-aging properties.
Marula oil has an abundance of antioxidants such as vitamin E which helps to fight free radical damage to the skin caused by UV rays from the sun. Several other beneficial phytonutrients with antioxidant properties are also present in the oil, including flavonoids (procyanidins and catechins), gallotannins and sterols.
