Meet Pure Marula Oil, an African Botanics Skin Staple

Pure Marula Oil is a skin staple for us at African Botanics. The luxurious liquid formula, packed with powerful antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and vitamin E, does wonders for skin’s firmness, elasticity, and glow. This does-it-all dynamic oil that’s long been a fan favorite has recently been reformulated to remove all essential oils and any trace of fragrance. What’s left is the potent formula you know and love, minus the scent. Here, we take you through why Pure Marula Oil is, and always will be, a mainstay in our product line.

Our Pure Marula Oil is of the best and most efficacious quality. The 100% cold-pressed oil is sustainably and responsibly sourced and wild-harvested in the heart of South Africa from our go-to reserve near the World Heritage Site. To know this product is to love it's truly decadent feel, thanks to its single-origin quality. This means that the oil comes from the same area every single time and is never mixed with any add-ins or other forms of Marula Oil. While many formulators often mix and match oils from multiple sources, you can rest assured that ours comes from one place, always. Our extraction process uses advanced patented supercritical methods high in pressure and modern filtration to guarantee purity, bio-availability, stability, and that full potency remains intact.

Marula Oil contains a high antioxidant count and is plentiful in many skin-benefiting micro-nutrients and fatty acids, especially Omega 9. It protects and regenerates, while helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, soothe redness and sensitivity, and prevent free radical damage. The high levels of Omega 9 - Oleic Acid (80%), Palmitic, and Stearic Fatty Acids allow the oil to sink in quickly to repair and seal in moisture. It’s also rich in Tocopherols (Pure Vitamin E), Tocotrienols, Flavonoids, Phenolic compounds, and Phytosterols, antioxidants which help protect against free radicals and environmental stressors.

Daily Dose

To apply, use morning and night on the face, neck, and décolleté. Warm 5-8 drops of Pure Marula Oil in your palms and then press into cleansed and toned skin to lock in moisture while skin is still damp. It pairs well with our Pure Marula Cleansing Oil. Pure Marula Oil can be used after an essence or serum, like Rose Treatment Essence or Vita C Corrector, or can be mixed in with any moisturizer or foundation for extra nourishment.

New Pure Marula Oil is unscented. To balance combination or oily skin types, try our restorative and calming Neroli Infused Marula Oil.
