Tips & Tricks
Why is baobab oil so beneficial?
Baobab oil is made from the fruit seeds of the Baobab tree (Adansonia digitata) which are collected and air dried in the hot sun. Baobab oil is extracted by a single, cold pressing process. The expeller ‘squeezes’ the oil from the baobab seed after which the newly pressed oil is immediately filtered to help clarify it. The oil itself is 100% natural and organic.
You can use the oil as it is on skin or hair. Or mix it with other oils to make your favourite skin/hair care products and soaps.
