NOURISHING SKIN AND HAIR OIL
The Benefits of Marula Oil While the Marula nut may literally be a hard nut to crack, it’s more than worth the trouble. Ideal for all skin types, a silky velvet in its texture (a feature that makes it ideal as a massage oil), Marula Oil improves skin hydration and smoothness and reduces redness, while protecting against the sun’s UV damage and the effects of time and age on the skin. It’s loaded with free radical scavenging antioxidants and essential fatty acids, including Omega 9, and enjoys a particularly high proportion of oleic acid, which has excellent anti-oxidant properties. An absorption enhancer, with superior ability to permeate surface tissues, oleic acid makes the skin appear smoother, increasing its elasticity and giving it a radiant glow. Meanwhile, Marula Oil’s linoleic acid component reduces infl ammation and moisturizes the skin, even as it aids the healing of dermatoses and sunburn. Because it is anti-infl ammatory, linoleic acid has been found useful in the treatment of acne. The body synthesizes palmitic, oleic and stearic acids, but not linoleic acid. A defi ciency of lineolic acid manifests itself in various ways. The skin tends to dry out and become scaly, while nails are apt to develop cracks. Also, without this vital fatty acid, hair loss can occur, not to mention loss of moisture through the skin barrier. Beyond this, there is a therapeutic element to marula as well: its extracts have been shown to be antimicrobial, even against drug-resistant strains of bacteria. This in turn enhances skin hygiene and makes for fewer breakouts. Finally, Marula Oil has a high oxidative stability relative to other oils (e.g. olive oil, sunfl ower oil, and cottonseed oil). Also, the vitamins A and E in Marula Oil work to delay the development of wrinkles, an inevitable by-product of age. It should be added that Marula Oil is especially good for dry skin and provides an excellent treatment for the hair, particularly thick, curly hair.
