Marula oil absorbs into the skin exceptionally easily It has the same effect as a dry oil. This oil maybe beneficial for anyone suffering from dry skin conditions, such as eczema, who dislike the ‘heaviness’ of oil that leaves a residue on the skin, may prefer to use this highly penetrative oil, with all its attendant vitamins and skin-restoring nutrients.
Marula oil’s nourishing effect is enhanced by its natural content of vitamins C and E. Vitamin C is vital in the formation of collagen – the tissue which gives skin its firmness – as well as having the powerful antioxidant properties. Only a small amount of dietary vitamin C reaches the skin and studies have shown that applying vitamin C topically is twenty times more effective for the skin than when taken orally. Vitamin E provides natural antioxidants – beneficial for their anti-aging, protective effects on the skin and gives the product a natural preservative, increasing its shelf-life.
The richness in omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids adds to the oil’s ability to protect against UV rays and aids skin regeneration at the cellular level. Its palmitic acid (omega 7) content is excellent for treating dry, mature, and damaged skin.
