Africa is home to the massive Baobab Tree, also known as The Tree of Life. This tree produces large fruit that when ripened are collected after naturally dropping from the tree to the ground. The seed of this fruit is then cold pressed to produce a free flowing golden oil. Baobab oil is widely used in the formulation of lip balms, skin moisturizing lotions, facial creams targeting wrinkles, hair care, and bar soap.
Our Baobab oil is cold pressed, virgin and unrefined with a mild nutty aroma and naturally occurring Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and Vitamin C. Baobab oil is rapidly absorbed into the skin and is highly penetrating leaving no greasy feel. Whether used in formulations or singularly Baobab Oil promotes healthy moisturized skin.

We hand pour carrier oil into amber glass bottles up to 16 oz. Larger sizes are poured into plastic bottles and jugs. Amber glass provides a high degree of light blocking protection to enhance a longer shelf life to oils. We recommend our larger sizes (above 16 oz) be transferred into glass upon receipt.
Contraindications: Seed/Nut Allergy - This virgin (unrefined) Baobab Seed oil is not recommend for those with a tree nut or seed allergy as this oil contains allergens.
