A clear pale-yellow kernel oil, prized for centuries by African women for its remarkable skincare properties. Marula oil is known for its exceptional oxidative stability, and is widely used in anti-aging formulations based on its free radical scavenging antioxidants and its high oleic acid content.
Mongongo (also called Manketti) oil comes from a tree seed common in the upper reaches of the Kavango and Zambezi rivers. Much-prized for its skincare and hair care properties, Mongongo oil is high in alpha-eleostearic acid, which reacts with UV light to form a protective layer on the surface of the skin or hair.

"If I can give any advice I’d say be open to learning about your own hair and how to take care of it. Go on your own hair journey. Forget all the stories you were told as a kid and learn about yourself!"Tariro
