Currently Marula oil has become very popular, because of the wonderful benefits they can bring you and the satisfactory impact on your skin
The women of Nambia and Ethiopia have been using this natural elixir for centuries. To obtain it, only the bones of the mature fruit are extracted and then pressed to extract the oil they contain. Once extracted, it is used for cosmetic, medicinal and nutritional purposes. Currently is also used in the preparation of shampoos, makeup removers, cleansers, facials, among others.
What is Marula Oil?
The oil is composed by a high index of vitamin E (which works as a powerful antioxidant) and vitamin C in high concentrations that enhances the production of collagen, also has flavonoids, procyanidins and catechins, for its part, the fatty acids present as they are oleic acid (Omega 9) and linoleic acid (Omega 6) make it a powerful moisturizer, so that all these elements make Marula oil one of the most coveted currently.
What are its benefits?
One of its benefits is its great antioxidant power, to give you an idea, it has 8 times more vitamin C than an orange, that is, 60% more than the rest of the oils used as cosmetics.
The high percentage of Omega 9 that is in the oil provide moisturizing properties, preventing dehydration of the skin. Marula oil also enhances the production of collagen due to the large number of nutrients it contains, as well as Vitamin B-3. This will make it a perfect anti-aging, improving the elasticity of our skin and reducing wrinkles and expression lines.
In case of having sensitive skin, with irritations or redness, Marula oil will be able to improve the hypersensitivity of the skin. This is because it has anti-inflammatory properties.
