4 Marula Oil Benefits for Hair and Skin

May 06, 2021

You may be pretty familiar with coconut oil or even liquid gold aka argan oil since we love talking about it around here, but there is another oil you may not have heard of, yet it deserves just as much love…

Enter Marula Oil.

Harvested from the nut in the marula fruit, grown on the Marula tree, this multi-purpose beauty is renowned for its wonderful skin benefits and you bet we are going to dive deep into them in our latest post!

The Marula tree is known as one of Africa’s “botanical treasures.” It is believed that people were enjoying the nutrition Marula fruits provide as far back as 10,000 years BC!

In today's post we want to let you in on how all its potent nutrients can leave your skin glowing and your locks silky soft and lustrous!

Go on, dig in! This may be your next holy grail oil!

A dream for dry skin

If there’s one thing marula oil is especially well-known for it has to be its incredible emollient properties that help to fill in gaps and cracks in the outermost skin layer, leaving the skin smooth, soft and beautifully hydrated. 

Its wonderful moisturizing properties can be credited to its rich fatty acid profile, namely oleic and linoleic fatty acids that help to nourish the skin leaving it baby soft. 

Like jojoba oil, the fatty acids found in marula oil closely resemble the skin’s own natural oils. This makes it a beautiful lightweight oil that will deeply nourish without leaving behind any greasy residue. 

Keeps your skin youthful

If there’s one word we adore around here, it has to be antioxidants. We swear our skin immediately perks up at just the mention of them! 

Marula oil is jam-packed in Vitamin C and E, both of which work together to fight free radicals, boost collagen production, brighten the skin and aid in tissue repair. 

Marula oil also contains a phytochemical called epicatechin, which has powerful antioxidant properties. It doesn’t end there! You’ll also find amino acids, specifically glutamic acid and L-arginine, wonderful for protecting the skin against the signs of aging. 

The rich array of antioxidants found in marula oil will help to protect the skin against scavenging free radicals from air pollution and UV rays. 

Troubled pores love it too 

Hold on just a minute! All that hydration may have you hiding your blemishes away,  but your troubled skin will fall in love with marula too!

It has powerful anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties, and this oil is non-comedogenic too, meaning you can rest assured it will never clog your pores!  

It loves your locks

If you’re looking for an oil that will instantly transform dry, dull locks to glowing, satiny strands of silk then look no further than marula oil! 

This beautiful lightweight oil will give your hair a stunning sheen without weighing it down or leaving it greasy. 

It will help to balance your hair’s natural oils while smoothing frizz and repairing damage, hallelujah!

We can’t wait for you to experience this gorgeous oil for yourself! We’re working on a new product that is brimming in this beauty so be sure to keep up with us so you’ll be the first to know when it’s ready for purchase!
