  • easily and quickly absorbed by the skin.
  • leaves minimal residue or greasiness.
  • serves well for intensive hair care.
  • moisturize skin.
  • helps improve skin elasticity.

Baobab oil contains: Vitamins A, D, E and F.

  • Vitamins A and F (polyunsaturated fatty acid) actively involved in the rejuvenation and renewal of cell membranes.
  • Vitamin E is a superior antioxidant, which is said to fight aging.
  • Omega 3,6, and 9 content the oil is helpful in formulations for treating eczema and psoriasis.
