Due to their natural property and the multiple benefits they offer, mineral oils are indispensable in any beauty routine. The cosmetic world has revolutionized thanks to the discovery of the benefits of Marula oil, a liquid that comes from the fruit of the Marula tree, originating from central and southern Africa.
The Marula oil is easily absorbed and has up to 60% more antioxidants than other natural oils. Here's how you can use it to take advantage of all its benefits.
FOR THE SKIN
This oil is beneficial for any skin type; dry, oily or sensitive. It is soothing and easily absorbed without leaving a greasy residue.
Only a few drops of oil on the face, neck, and neckline can hold moisture in the skin while fighting free radicals that threaten complexion. Rich in vitamins C and E, the oil helps combat the effects of aging by repairing the skin from free radical damage, sun exposure, and pollution. Plus, it helps minimize acne scars, thanks to its moisturizing and antibacterial properties.
FOR THE HAIR
Marula oil can be a complete treatment for damaged hair: it helps to hydrate and nourish the hair from root to tips without leaving it heavy or oily.
The oil is rich in fatty acids - such as omega 9, vitamin E and flavonoids, - and vitamin C, containing about 60% more antioxidant powers than argan oil, for example. Therefore, it helps rejuvenate your hair, making it less porous and weak and more voluminous.
Despite its moisturizing and nourishing properties, this oil is lightweight and fast-absorbing, leaving the hair with movement and free of oiliness or heavy hair sensation.
The Marula oil also has a high level of oleic acid that helps form a protective barrier against external aggressions (such as sun, pollution, humidity, and wind). This protective wrap around the strands especially helps protect your hair from UV rays and even the heat of styling devices such as a hairdryer, curling iron, and curler.
FOR THE NAILS
Your nails will also become stronger and shinier when given a few drops of oil. Plus, the cuticles will thank for the hydration.
