Baobab is cold pressed from the seeds of the Baobab Tree. The Baobab tree is often referred to as the upside-down tree, growing to heights of 30meters, with trunks often 11m in diameter. Currently there are examples of the Baobab tree that are in excess of 1200 years old and is is believed the Baobab tree can live to 6000 years.
The Baobab stores water in it's trunk in case of drought, it can store up to 100,000 liters of water within the trunk to endure the harshest of droughts. The Baobab produces a velvety shelled fruit, approximately the size of a coconut, weighing around 1.5kg.
The 'Tree of Life' is exactly that for your skin. The oil is uniquely profiled with Antioxidant,s Vitamin A, D, E & F as well as Omega 3, 6 & 9 Fatty acids. Baobab oil is highly penetrating, making it perfect for intensive skin use, instantly softening dry skin.
Baobab is becoming increasingly used in haircare products, especially shampoo where in combination with the shampoo ingredients the Baobab penetrates the hair follicle to enrich it with moisture and improving elasticity whilst nourishing the scalp. The relatively light and highly penetrative nature of Baobab does not weight hair down. Baobab is very similar to Argan on the hair, without the weight associated with Argan.
