Baobab oil is not an essential or volatile oil. Since it is a 'fixed' oil, or 'carrier' oil,
it will not burn when used neat on the skin.

  • in small percentages in creams, lotions, body butters and other skin care formulations.
  • easily and quickly absorbed by the skin.
  • leaves minimal residue or greasiness.
  • serves well for intensive hair care.
  • moisturize skin.
  • helps improve skin elasticity.
  • encourages regeneration of skin cells.
  • does NOT clog pores.

Anecdotal evidence indicates the oil alleviates pain from burns and regenerates the epithelial tissues in a short time, thereby improving skin tone and 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.
  • External use only.
  • Keep away from children and pets.
  • Containers should be kept tightly closed in order to minimize contamination.
  • Store in cool (< 75 F), dry, well ventilated area.
  • Store away from heat & light.

Cool temperatures may result in coagulation of the fat molecules and appearance of 'ghosts' in the oil. Slow and gentle reheating allows the 'ghosts' to disappear.
