Baobab- The Tree of Life.
The baobab tree, which is native to Eastern and Southern Africa, is also known as the “Tree Of Life” as it provides human and animal inhabitants with shelter, water, clothing and food. These trees can exceed over 1000 years of age.
Derived from the nutritious fruit, Baobab Oil is a rare, golden oil which absorbs quickly without clogging pores or leaving an oily film on your skin.
Organic Baobab Oil is rich in palmitic acid, linolec acid and oleic acids, which make it an ideal skin treatment for dry and mature skin. It is highly valued for it's regenerative, moisturising and anti-inflammatory properties.
The oil locks in moisture and leaves your skin velvety- smooth, while supporting its protective barrier.
"In cold temperatures untreated and pure Baobab Oil becomes solid, similar to coconut oil. But don't worry it's completely natural and shows that you hold an all natural and pure product in your hands. As soon as temperatures rise again it'll liquify again. A warm bathrrom or a warm (not hot!) double boiler does the trick."

Natural Make-Up Remover
It makes an excellent make up remover. All you need is warm water, natural soap and at least two re-usable pads (where possible), depending on how much make up you would like to remove. Here is how I like to do it:
Wash your face with warm water and soap, this already removes a lot of make up. Add a bit of oil onto the cotton pad and gently remove the remaining make up from top to bottom.
After you can either leave your face how it is or wash it again with mild soap.
I have tried both and both works perfectly fine.
Massage directly into your clean and damp skin. To achieve the best results, I recommend using natural soap in your daily routine.
Baobab Oil is also a very popular beard oil in South Africa. To give your irritated skin a break after shaving, gently massage 1-2 drops of Baobab Oil into your damp skin until the oil is absorbed.
Baobab Oil has a slight nutty smell, in my opinion, which vanishes on the skin.
