Baobab oil for skincare and anti-ageing

Baobab oil has been part of African skin care for centuries; it is widely viewed as the ultimate beauty product. It has a high content of vitamins A, D, E and F (essential fatty acids). Baobab oil is said to provide impressive moisturizing benefits to the skin and hair.

It absorbs quickly, improves elasticity, encourages regeneration of skin cells and does not clog the pores. It is an excellent ingredient in formulations effective in cases of acne, furunculosis, psoriasis, wounds and inflammations.

As such, the extract can be used in dermocosmetic formulations. It is also recommended in cases of sunburn or accident-related burns as it provides immediate relief of pain and/or rashes. This rich, golden oil has a slightly nutty smell and is extremely stable against rancidity.
