Considered one of Africa’s botanical treasures, the Marula tree has a long history in African culture. The raw materials for the oil are harvested and pressed by community collectives of mostly women. Semi-solid at ambient temperatures, immersion in a hot-water bath will bring it to a liquid state.

It absorbs well into the skin and is excellent as a massage oil on its own or in a blend. Marula Oil has excellent oxidative stability, which makes it an ideal choice for a modern cosmetic formula. It can be used to manufacture leave-in hair treatments, scalp conditioners, hair lotions, skin moisturizing lotions, body butters, eye shadows, lip treatments.

Consistency: Typical and Characteristic of Carrier Oils.

Absorption: Absorbs easily into the skin leaving a silky smooth feel.

Outstanding Quality Marula Oil & Terrific Customer Service & Shipping Dept I just received my Marula oil and the quality is outstanding Package: My order arrived in a really well packaged sturdy box - The bottle of Marula oil inside the box had lots of plastic around it so it would not be damaged at all during its trip here. When I took the cap off the bottle - it had a secure seal on it - making sure contents did not spill or leak out - The bottle was filled all the way to the top (unlike many other vendors that ship lesser quantity) - when your web site states "16oz" size - it really is that amount. Product: This Fabulous High Quality Marula oil was at all levels rich and luxurious. I applied it to my skin This beautiful Marula oil with a light golden hew and a faint nutty smell. (close your eyes & you can hear Africa smiling) I warmed it with my fingertips then applied it to my face - and it went right in (nothing sat on the surface - I could hear my skin yelling "yeeppee skippppy" leaving a soft alive healthy glow to my skin) (I was only going to apply it to my face - but then I tried a little on my arms - then I decided to put some on my legs - wow - same thing - leaving No greasy residue behind on any place I applied it.) I know that my clients will be super happy with this fabulous Quality Marula oil - (this has been quite the challenge to find truly High Quality Marula oil - New Directions has done just that ) So many vendors are bringing in very sad quality Marula oil - most of them do not even know where it comes from - much less how it is Harvested, processed or anything. Thank you for your Great Customer Service & all that your company does in protecting the Quality of what they provide to us at all levels. Brigadoon Immordino, INC.

Unparalleled price! As a face oil Marula is one most amazing carrier oil's I have experienced. It is a "dry" oil, almost instantly absorbed by the skin. Excellent for dry or oily skin. High concentrations of conditioning Oleic acid and anti-oxidants, Marula leaves the skin feeling soft, hydrated, nourished and revitalized. Not recommended as massage oil because it absorbs so totally quickly there would be no "slip" for massage, but for an instantly absorbing non-greasy facial oil or topical applications, it is without an equal. Very useful in the summer, when other oils can just feel too hot and heavy on dry skin. Marula Oil is a wonderful addition to any oil based serums, anti-aging and face creams. It adds rapid absorbency to the other emollients you choose to use. It has an amazingly long shelf life and is high in Palmitic, Oleic, Linoleic fatty acids and Stearic Acids.
