I learned about it when I was living in South Africa, where it was called “the tree of life” by the natives. An oddly shaped tree with uses ranging from water storage to cloth production to immune system-boosting leaves, it’s easy to see how the baobab tree can change your life.

How Is Baobab Oil Made?

Baobab oil is made from cold pressing the seeds of the fruit that grows on the tree. The oil is safe to use both directly on the hair and skin and absorbs into both easily, without leaving behind a greasy residue.

How Baobab Oil Is Protective For Your Skin

When applied to the skin, baobab oil has intense rejuvenative and protective properties. Its vitamin C content, which is about 6 times higher than an orange, helps your skin maintain its elasticity. Also boasting high levels of vitamins A and B, it naturally hydrates and tightens skin. And let’s not forget about its protective properties. Rich in antioxidants, it shields your skin from possible free-radical damage.

How Baobab Oil Is Amazing For Your Hair

Due to its high levels of fatty acids and antioxidants, baobab is great for natural hair: it adds natural shine, bounce, and elasticity. It acts as a non-greasy way to soften and detangle strands, and has even been said to get rid of dandruff.
