Cold-pressed from the kernels of the fruit of the Marula tree (Sclerocarya birrea), Marula oil has been used traditionally in Southern Africa for thousands of years. It is rich in antioxidants, with exceptional resistance to oxidation due to its high degree of mono-unsaturated fatty acids. Marula Oil contains a similar fatty acid composition to olive oil but is 10 times more resistant to oxidation. Light and easily absorbed, it contains high proportions of oleic acid (70-78%), as well as linoleic acid (4-7%) making it an ideal oil for topical use for improved skin hydration and supple smoothness. Our Marula Oil is virgin, non-GMO.
