Baobab Oil Overview

Baobab Oil nourishes the outermost layer of the skin (the epidermis) that provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone. This helps soften the skin and give it greater elasticity.

It can also help with a range of skin disorders including eczema and psoriasis. 

Baobab oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and other fats, including:

  • palmitic acid
  • oleic acid
  • linolenic acid
  • linoleic acid
