Baobab Oil Facial Moisturiser with Crocodile Oil for Dry and Damaged Skin
“The baobab was amongst the first trees to appear on the land. Next came the slender, graceful palm tree. The baobab saw the palm tree and cried out that it wanted to be taller. Then the beautiful flame tree appeared with its red flower and the baobab was envious for flower blossoms. When the baobab saw the magnificent fig tree, it prayed for fruit as well. The gods became angry with the tree and pulled it up by its roots, then replanted it upside down to keep it quiet.”
– African Folklore
Replacing rich moisturiser with a lightweight oil-based one is an ideal way to ensure that sensitive or acne-prone skin gets much-needed hydration. Repcillin Baobab Oil Facial Moisturiser is easily and quickly absorbed by the skin leaving no oiliness or greasiness. Baobab oil is highly moisturising, emollient and soothing. It contains vitamins A, D, E and F. Vitamins A and F are polyunsaturated fatty acids that actively involved in the rejuvenation and renewal of cell membranes, while vitamin E is a superior antioxidant that helps to fight ageing. Baobab oil is ideal to help treat dry and damaged skin and its soothing properties are helpful for eczema and psoriasis treatments due to the high content of omega 3, 6 and 9. It also helps to improve skin elasticity, encourages regeneration of skin cells and does not clog the pores.
Baobab oil is extracted from the seeds of the fruit that bloom on baobab trees. These extremely old trees (some species live up to a thousand years or more) are native to Africa and feature thick trunks and thin branches. Often called “upside down trees” because of their spindly branches that resemble roots, the flowers of baobab trees bloom once a year and interestingly open at night. Once pollinated by hungry bats, bees and wasps, the flowers produce fruit, or pods, which house the seeds used to create the prized baobab oil.
Our Organic Baobab oil is cold pressed and comes from Senegal, West Africa. The company we source it from works closely with the government and local villagers and places a great deal of emphasis to ensure the oil is ethically and sustainably produced.
