Benefits of Marula Oil

Have you heard about Marula Oil? It’s extracted from the kernels (nuts) of the Marula tree (Sclerocarya birrea), from the Anacardiaceae family. The botanical name of Marula is Sclerocarya birrea. The Marula tree is common in the lower-lying areas of Southern Africa, and is found, in abundance, in Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The astringent bark has a range of medicinal uses. In Southern Africa, it has proven to be an effective treatment for diarrhea, diabetes, fever and malaria. When ripe, the fruits have a light yellow skin, with white flesh, rich in vitamin C – about 4 times the amount found in an orange! We’re wild about it! So much so, it just shot up to the top of our “must-have beauty products” list. Find out why we heart it!
