Marula is a fruit native to the southern region of Africa and has been harvested wild for centuries used as a natural remedy to heal many conditions. This rare oil has a fragrant floral, nutty aroma that is packed with many powerful properties including protective antioxidants- in fact it contains 60% more antioxidants than the more famous cousin Moroccan Argan oil. Marula Oil has been part of multiple beauty rituals for hundreds of years in order to protect the skin and hair from the harsh weather conditions in Southern Africa.

This super fast absorbing oil is loaded with nutrients and fatty acids that fight environmental damage and it is incredibly hydrating. More impressively, Marula oil has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, loaded with Vitamin C and E which work together to fight free radical damage, boost cellular activity, aid in building collagen, protect against environmental toxins and support the overall health of your skin and hair.
