{Test This} Marula Oil

2012 December 18

Slathering oil on your face may be counterintuitive but facial beauty oils have become a quick growing category–with many companies claiming that pure oil from nuts, flowers and fruit can work wonders on your skin. One of these, Marula oil, marketed and sold by Marula-The Leakey Collection, is extracted from the nuts of the marula tree, indigenous to South Africa.

The oil is superior to grapeseed and argan oils because it has higher levels of antioxidants and omega-9 acid, according to its manufacturers. They go on to say that an independent study found Marula oil to be 16% more powerful than Argan oil at fighting free radicals.

“This oil leaves skin soft and supple with increased elasticity and firmness for healthy, beautiful and age defying radiance,” according to the company’s website.
