The Benefits of Marula Oil on Skin and Hair

The Benefits of Marula Oil on Skin and Hair

Discover the Power of Marula Oil

A trending beauty ingredient that works wonders on your skin, hair and body, meet your new daily must-have: Marula Oil. Found in a variety of formulas, from facial oils to hair elixirs, we think that Marula Oil could become the new Argan Oil or the new Coconut Oil.

What is Marula Oil?

Marula Oil is derived from two sources of the African Marula tree, extracted from either the Marula Nut or the soft kernel seeds of the Marula fruit. With multiple uses, Marula Oil can function as a cooking oil, beauty ingredient, and even as a massage oil. Pure forms of Marula Oil, as a single natural ingredient, are rare to find, and are most frequently blended with multiple natural oils such as Camellia Oil.

What are the Benefits of Marula Oil?

Nourishing properties to condition and repair

A natural healing remedy to smooth and support the skin, Marula Oil can act as a topical treatment to boost hydration with immediate results. It’s non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog the pores. Instead, application leaves the skin feeling nourished and balanced, and only a light layer of oil is needed to see instant benefits. Marula Oil is both anti-inflammatory and highly multipurpose, also acting as a fantastic method to add condition and luminosity to your hair.

Strengthen the skin’s natural protective barrier

Naturally rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C and E, and essential fatty acids, Marula Oil is an easy way to improve the skin’s resistance to weather and external aggressors. With continued use, the skin’s surface will be stronger and it can even help to reverse the effects of sun damage on the complexion. Absorbing quickly into the skin, we love using this liberally all over the face as a rich night treatment or lightly as a nourishing daily makeup primer.

Anti-ageing benefits

Combining anti-pollution defence and anti-ageing benefits, Marula Oil truly does it all. A daily boost of antioxidant protection that improves the condition of the skin long-term, the formula helps to soften the appearance of wrinkles, stimulate collagen production and reduce water loss, promoting a youthful hydrated complexion all year round. When Marula Oil is combined in beauty formulas with other high-performance anti-ageing ingredients, it’s a recipe for skincare success.
