Botanical Name: Adansonia digitata L.
Extraction Method: Cold Pressed
Processing Type: Unrefined
Description: Baobab Carrier Oil is derived from the Baobab tree’s fruit seeds, which are cold pressed to produce an emollient, conditioning oil that is known for contributing excellent hydration to skin and hair to promote their strength and elasticity.
Baobab Oil is sedimented, thus it may potentially develop a cloudy precipitation in cool temperatures; however, this is not known to weaken the quality of the product and the oil will return to its clear state when gently heated. Purchases of entire drums can also expect some clouding near the bottom of the drum. Due to the Palmitic Acid content, Baobab Oil may solidify and precipitate out of suspension.
Color: Yellow to Golden-Yellow
Aromatic Description: The aroma of Baobab Oil is typical and characteristic of carrier oils with a slightly nutty nuance.
Common Uses: Rich in antioxidants, fatty acids, and vitamins A, D, E, Baobab Carrier Oil is known to be hydrating and soothing, making it ideal for application to areas of skin that are dry, irritated, and inflamed or that may have experienced minor burns, such as sunburns. Baobab Oil is commonly used to dilute essential oils in massage blends as well as roller blends, and it makes an excellent moisturizer when added to natural hair products, soothing balms, and face creams. When combined with other oil blends, Baobab Oil helps to add volume and structure, while its saturated fatty acid content helps prolong their shelf life.
Consistency: In its natural state, Baobab Oil is a clear liquid with a light consistency.
Absorption: Baobab Oil is reputed to absorb easily into the skin without leaving a greasy residue.
Shelf Life: Users can expect Baobab Oil to have a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the current “Best Before” date.
Cautions: None known.
Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool, dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.
