Focus On Natural Oils for Skin: Baobab!

Posted by Shirley Makela, AADP INHC on 12/15/2014 to News

The majestic Baobab trees are native to Africa are are sometimes called “upside-down” trees.  They grow across the African continent, and are most prevalent in the hotter & drier lower altitudes. They live extremely long lives, upwards to 6,000 years by some accounts.  They bloom only once a year and their blossoms open at night!  From these nocturnal flowers come nuts from which the thick, rich golden colored oil is extracted.

 I tried Baobab oil and loved it!  Baobab oil is extremely rich in antioxidants A, C, E and F to fight free radicals and has 9 essential fatty acids - omegas 3,6 & 9, as well as essential linoleic acid that are incredibly nourishing to skin.  The oil absorbs quickly into skin without leaving residue leaving skin smooth and silky.  It does not clog pores and is said to be calming to skin as well as toning.

Oils that absorb well and are rich in nutrients are the best skin care. For this reason Alki Organix’s  Delicious Skin – Extra Care Serum formula includes Baobab oil along with other wonderful and nourishing oils like Tamanu and Avocado for skin in need of extra care. For best absorption all oils are best applied after cleansing and exfoliating so that the oil can be absorbed fully.

 Is any one oil right for everyone? I don’t believe so, we are all individual, and luckily nature provides an incredible bounty of them! 

Which oils do you love?
