1) Marula Oil is rich in antioxidants-
In fact, it has 50%-60% more antioxidants than most other oils used for skincare. Antioxidants protect skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells. Antioxidants in skin care products can do a lot for the health and appearance of your skin, including reducing the signs of aging.


2) Marula Oil has 8 times the Vitamin C of oranges-

Vitamin C, when applied to the skin, provides a skin-rejuvenating effect by improving collagen synthesis in the skin that slows down with aging, as well as limiting skin damage from free radicals.

3) Heals chapped lips
Marula Oil used on the lips works even better than chapstick! Marula oil has properties that make the skin have more elasticity and the lips are no exception to that. Using marula oil every day on your lips will keep them looking soft and full.

4) Great for all skin types
Even though marula oil is well…an oil, its actually great for all skin types. For oily skin ladies, washing your face with a harsh cleanser will strip your face of all of its natural oil. This causes your skin to overproduce oil and in fact, cause you to be even more oily. Using an oil will actually help your skin’s chemistry balance out.

5) High in Fatty Acids
Why is this important? Marula oil specifically contains an omega 9 called oleic acid. This fatty acid has the ability to get deep in your skin, and hydrate better. Friend, hydration is KEY! This also is helpful when dealing with dry skin. If you are dealing with dry/damaged skin, marula oil is working well for people as a long term moisturizer.

6) Protects the skin from environmental aggressors-
The sun, pollution, and wind, can all harm your skin. The fatty acids in the oil protect against your environment that can cause premature aging.

Thanks to its antimicrobial properties that fight future bacteria, it actually heals your blemishes faster!
