Why we use it

Marula seed oil is an increasingly popular skincare ingredient, and for good reason. It’s rich in oleic acid, a fatty acid that’s great for moisturizing and softening the skin. It also has a significant concentration of antioxidants to help prevent free radical damage. Its unique blend of fatty acids is similar enough to your skin’s natural oil that it’s considered biomimetic, and it can help lock in moisture and reduce transepidermal water loss.
