Olive Squalane: an emollient derived from olive oil, it softens the skin. It is similar to squalene, which occurs naturally in the sebum produced by the sebaceous glands in our skin. It is very light, it has great spreading properties and it’s quickly absorbed by the skin leaving no oily residue.
Buriti Oil: it has a beautiful satin-like skin feel and it’s dark yellow/orange because of its very high beta-carotene content (an antioxidant that is a precursor of vitamin A) and tocopherol, also an antioxidant. It is high in oleic acid and contains considerable amounts of palmitic acid, an emollient that helps soften and soothe the skin whilst creating a thin protective layer to help prevent water evaporation.
Marula Oil: is extracted by cold-pressing the kernel of the fruit of the Sclerocarya birrea, a tree indigenous to Southern and West Africa related to the mango. There are are male and female trees and the female carry the fruits. Coincidentally, women are the primary producers of marula products so its commercialisation provides an income for themselves and their families. Marula oil is non-irritant and has moisturising and hydrating properties. It is considered a biomimetic oil (bio = life, mimetic = imitating) due to its high content of oleic acid and the presence palmitic acid; very similar to those present in our skin. It absorbs fast, does not feel heavy at all and has the ability to smooth out dry flaking skin.
Massage until fully absorbed onto clean, dry skin daily, or as needed.

Olive squalane is an emollient - it softens the skin - derived from olive oil. It is similar to squalene, which occurs naturally in the sebum produced by the sebaceous glands in our skin. It is very light, it has great spreading properties and it's quickly absorbed by the skin leaving no oily residue.
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil (Organic). It's the fixed oil obtained from the ripe seed kernel of the sweet almond tree, Prunus amygdalus var. dulcis, Rosaceae. The oil comprises approximately 62% monounsaturated oleic acid (an omega-9 fatty acid), 29% linoleic acid (a polyunsaturated omega-6 essential fatty acid), and 9% saturated fatty acid. It has softening and moisturising properties.
Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil (Organic). Is the fixed oil expressed from the kernels of the Apricot, Prunus armeniaca L., Rosaceae. The oil comprises predominantly unsaturated fatty acids (oleic and linoleic) as well as traces of vitamin E and carotenoids. Nourishing and moisturising.
Adansonia Digitata (Baobab) Seed Oil (Organic). It's the oil expressed from the seeds of the Monkey Bread Tree or the Baobab, Adansonia digitata L., Bombacaceae. Baobab oil (Mbuyu in Swahili) is derived from the seeds of the baobab native to Eastern and Southern Africa. Baobab oil has a high content of vitamins A, D, E and essential fatty acids. Baobab oil is extremely stable against rancidity.

Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract. This extract comes from the dried leaves of the familiar rosemary plant (Rosmarinus officinalis L.), from which a dark brown, viscous liquid is obtained using a process called supercritical carbon dioxide extraction. The presence of phenolic diterpenes (mainly carnosic acid and carnosol) have been recognised to have potent antioxidant properties which retard the oxidation of fatty and essential oils, as well as carotenoids. This inherent attribute helps prolong the oxidative shelf-life of our finished products. The aromatic plant, with its strong, distinctive smell, has long been used in folk medicine as it also has some antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
