Nature’s miracle – Extraordinary properties that nourish the skin, lock in moisture and provide antioxidant protection from free radicals.
The secret to maintaining beautiful and healthy skin is to keep it properly moisturised. Oils offer great nourishing and moisturising properties, absorbing deep into the skin, softening and soothing and helping to keep it supple and moist.
East African Shea Butter (Vitellaria Paradoxa Nilotica)
Shea butter is highly penetrating, hydrating and has a softening effect on the skin. The high composition of essential fatty acids and vitamins in the East African Nilotica variety makes it ideal for nourishing dry skin. Our shea butter products are sourced from Uganda and inspired by my great-grandmother Onyang’s recipes. We have named them “Onyang Collection” in her memory.
Baobab Seed Oil (Adansonia)
The Baobab tree is perhaps the best-known tree in Africa, known as ‘The Tree of Life’. So widespread is the tree that, to many, it is an iconic symbol of the continent itself. Baobab oil is uniquely lightweight, and has superior moisturising properties due to high oleic and linoleic fatty acid composition. Saturated with vitamins and anti-oxidants, it encourages skin regeneration and also improves elasticity by stimulating collagen and tissue repair.
Rooibos Tea (Aspalathus Linearis)
Indigenous to South Africa, this botanical is treasured by the native people that live there. It is a potent anti-oxidant and naturally rich in zinc, which helps increase the skin’s metabolism. Rooibos is also rich in superoxide dismutase – an enzyme with excellent anti-aging properties.
Marula Seed Oil (Sclerocarya Birrea)
Marula Oil has been used in Africa for centuries valued for its skin nourishing and hydrating properties. Used as early as 9000BC, Marula oil is often referred to as the “miracle oil” for its remarkable qualities. Its high oleic acid content locks in moisture and creates a protective barrier on the skin. Tocopherols, sterols and flavonoids provide antioxidant protection from free radicals and skin ageing.
Moringa Seed Oil (Moringa Oleifera)
Affectionately known as ‘The Miracle Tree,” the natural goodness of Moringa dates back thousands of years ago. Moringa seed oil provides powerful nutrients and remedies for the skin. The naturally high concentration of oleic fatty acids in the oil makes it extremely moisturising and nourishing for the skin. It also contains behenic acid, which helps to smooth and sooth the skin. Rich in antioxidants it helps to fight free radical damage and reduce signs of skin aging.
Frankincense Oil (Boswellia Sacra)
Frankincense oil keeps tissue healthy and also encourages healthy cell regeneration.
Myrrh Oil (Commiphora Myrrha)
Harvested from Northern Africa and then steam distilled, this oil has potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant powers due to the terpenoids it contains.
