5 skin benefits of Baobab Oil

December 20, 2016

Baobab oil is a superfood for the skin. Derived from the seeds of the African Baobab tree, this skin-conditioning oil is a soothing, nourishing and moisturising salve for the entire body.

Here are five benefits to using this versatile oil:

  1. Baobab oil improves the elasticity of the skin, making it feel softer and suppler to the touch. We've blended it into Mama's Belly Rub Stretch Mark Oil because it's perfect for encouraging the collagen fibres of the skin to gently expand. Suppler skin results in a lower risk of developing stretch marks and scars.
  2. Rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids that contribute towards maintaining a healthy skin, Baobab Oil adds vibrancy to the complexion, helping it to look youthful and soft.
  3. It's rich texture is quick to absorb and because it doesn't clog up the pores on the surface of the skin it won't cause an outbreak of blackheads and pimples like other oils that can suffocate the skin.
  4. Plus, it alleviates itchiness and dryness, making it perfect for relieving the discomfort of a growing baby bump. You can even apply it over the breasts, which can often feel itchy as the milk ducts expand, in readiness for breastfeeding.
  5. Got a teenager going through a growth spurt? Applying Baobab oil over the skin reduces the risk of developing those telltale stretch marks that can often appear over the abdomen, arms and legs during adolescence.
