BAOBAB FRUIT OIL
Known as one of the largest succulents in the world, the baobab plant is an iconic part of its native African landscape. It’s a tree that can thrive for thousands of years — even in the harshest, driest environments and grows best in hot, arid environments that see little rainfall.
The part of the tree that’s used in beauty products is actually its fruit. Once the fruit dries, it turns into a pod that falls to the ground. These pods are then harvested and require very little handling before being infused into creams and lotions. Read on to learn more about baobab oil’s skin benefits.
Using Baobab Oil
While the baobab fruit can be eaten and the dried pods can be used in food, it’s often infused into lotions, creams, scrubs, and hair products to amplify their positive effects. You can apply these products to your skin and hair every day to ensure lasting benefits from the baobab’s fruit.
Baobab Oil Skin Benefits
Baobab oil is generally known for its regenerative abilities. It is excellent for softening skin and helping heal any imperfections due to its antioxidants, ample amounts of vitamin A, B, and C, along with omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids. It also contains magnesium, potassium, and calcium.
Antioxidants are essential to preventing harm from free radicals. Free radicals can damage your skin and may increase the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Through using antioxidants, you can limit these signs of aging.
Vitamin A helps the skin repel bacteria and viruses more effectively and it may limit outbreaks of acne. Vitamin B can ensure your skin retains more moisture, and with proper moisture, your skin can experience a reduction in dryness, flakiness, and fine lines. Vitamin C is mainly useful for increasing collagen production. The more collagen your skin produces, the plumper it looks and the softer it feels.
Omega Fatty Acids
Omega 3s act as anti-inflammatories and can be used for conditions such as acne and psoriasis. Omega 6s help stimulate hair and skin growth and ensure the continued regeneration of healthy cells. Omega 9s also minimize inflammation and the baobab oil skin benefits result in reduced signs of aging.
