The Marula Neroli skin care range lets you escape on a journey towards stillness and peace. The calming scent of neroli and lavender are combined with the skin nourishing benefits of Marula oil and Mafaru butter. Marula oil contains four times the amount of vitamin C as oranges, making it a great anti-oxidant and skin brightener.
Marula oil is extracted from the kernels of the Marula tree (Sclerocarya birrea) that belongs to the same Anacardiaceae family as the mango, cashew, pistachio, and sumac trees. It is anti-oxidant-rich, with key nutrients, minerals, and essential fatty acids like calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium.
Marula contains four times as much vitamin C as oranges and has a high vitamin E content. Its high content of tocopherols, flavanols, procyanidin, and catechins makes this powerful oil a strong anti-oxidant and adds to its stable shelf life.
The skin absorbs it quickly, thanks to its high oleic acid content - around 80% of the stone is made up of this acid, which is an omega 9 fatty acid. Oleic acid’s ability to penetrate skin deeply means it provides long-lasting hydration. It deeply hydrates the skin and helps restore elasticity, improves skin tone, and soothes irritation.
Passed down from generations, women have cracked the nut of the Marula Fruit to extract the precious kernels from which the oil is made. This powerful healing oil is widely used for its medicinal benefits and has been part of numerous beauty rituals for centuries to protect the skin and hair from the harsh and dry weather conditions.
