If you want to know more: Baobab oil is obtained from the seeds of the fruit of the picturesque African Adansonia tree. They can live up to one thousand years by their ability to store water in their trunks and survive years of drought. The cold pressed oil extracted from the seeds of the fruit has many therapeutic benefits. Baobab contains a balanced amount of linoleic acid (omega 6), oleic acid (omega 9 ) and the saturated fatty acid palmitic. These all make it an excellent moisturizer, protecting skin from extreme temperatures and promoting rejuvenation of skin cells. It has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is quickly absorbed by the skin.
