In the next week I’m going to be doing a product review and one of the ingredients is Baobab Oil. It’s classified as a carrier oil, like jojoba, avocado oils. The seeds are cold pressed and filtered. Cold pressing ensures that the valuable properties in the oil are not destroyed as could happen in a heated press.
Baobab Oil contains:
- Vitamin D
- Palmitic acid, Oleic Acid, Linoleic Acid
- Omega 3, Omega 6 & Omega 9 Fatty Acids
Baobab Oil is known for the following:
- Skin Softening
- Skin Restructuring
- Quick absorption
- Improves the elasticity of the skin
- Encourages regeneration of cells without clogging pores.
- Essential fatty acids contribute towards maintaining a healthy skin
- Superb moisturizing benefits for skin and hair
- It is a non-siccative (non-drying) oil.
- Add it to your leave-in conditioner
- Baobab Oil is also good for strengthening damaged hair and for moisturizing dry hair.
The Baobab tree, Adansonia digitata, grows in Africa. It is an unusual looking tree with a thick stem and spindly branches resembling roots. Many people call the Baobab ‘the upside-down’ tree because of its strange appearance.
Be on the look out for my product review soon.
