This exquisite oil is cold pressed from the seeds of Baobab fruit trees growing in Africa. The normal lifespan of a Baobab tree is 500 years, with the oldest trees reaching the age of 5000 years and a height of 20 meters. Known to the locals in its natural habitat as "The Tree Of Life”, Baobab's bark, leaves and fruit pulp are also used. Its lovely white flowers emit a smell of rotting meat, which attracts pollinating moths, flies and ants; however, the seed oil itself possesses a light, nutty, almost floral scent.

Containing vitamins A, E and F and sterols, baobab oil absorbs quickly and is a wonderful oil to use on rough skin and products designed to moisturize hair. For cosmetic use only.

Baobab oil is extremely stable against rancidity. For maximum shelf life, store tightly sealed in a cool location (under 77 degrees F) and away from sunlight.
