An age-defying moisturizer for beautiful skin and hair
Features a unique antioxidant and fatty acid profile
Absorbs quickly with no greasy residue
Age-proof your skin and revitalize your hair with the moisturizing power of Marula Oil from Swanson Premium. A popular beauty aid throughout Southern Africa, the oil of the marula seed is gaining worldwide recognition as one of nature’s most effective skin protectors, thanks to its antioxidant and fatty acid profile. Marula oil is more than 70% oleic acid (the same omega-9 fatty acid found in olive oil), which enables it to be absorbed quickly by the skin without clogging pores and with no greasy residue—but that’s only part of the equation. Marula oil also contains roughly 10% palmitic acid, which creates a protective barrier on the skin's surface to guard against transdermal moisture loss in even the harshest of conditions. In addition to its lipid constituents, marula oil contains antioxidant flavonoids, catechins, sterols and tocopherols, which protect against free-radical damage that can contribute to skin aging. In addition to its beautifying benefits for the skin, marula oil’s blend of oleic and palmitic acids makes it an excellent hair conditioner, sealing in moisture to leave your locks shiny, silky and manageable.
With moisturizing, age-defying benefits for skin and hair alike, our 100% Pure Marula Oil can be an invaluable component of your daily beauty regimen. It can be used by itself or combined with carriers such as joboba or olive oil to help maintain a healthy, radiant glow.
