One of the perks of running FabOverFifty is getting to test new products that promise to help my aging skin recapture a bit of youth. Happily, many companies are making great advances in the science of beauty and developing products that really do work, but trying them is the only way to discover if they stand up to their claims. Since each of us can’t buy every product we read about , we often rely on our FOF sisters to give us the scoop.
Well, I’m here today to tell you that the latest product I’ve tried, Pure Marula Facial Oil, is a winner.
‘Anti-Aging Miracle Oil’ For The Skin
Extremely high in antioxidants (60% higher than the leading Argan oil!), as well as in omega fatty acid, soothing Marula oil has long been used in Africa as a cosmetic and natural healing treatment for sun-damaged, dry and cracking skin. Found only in Southern Africa and in Madagascar, the Marula tree yields nuts which are carefully hand cracked, and then the purest blonde kernels are painstakingly selected to be turned into the purest, highest-quality oil on the market. While other mass-produced Marula oils are cleansed using high heat and harsh chemicals–which removes most of their natural, beneficial nutrients–Pure Marula Facial Oil is gently cleansed with an exclusive, heat-free technology.
I’ve been using Pure Marula Facial Oil for four weeks and am absolutely delighted with the results. It quickly sinks into my skin, so it doesn’t feel or look the least bit greasy. It also provides great moisture that plumps and firms the skin, helping to reduce the look of my fine lines and wrinkles. The company calls it a “multi-tasker” because it works as a serum, moisturizer and makeup primer all in one. Plus, it’s good for all skin types (even oily skin) and can be used to help heal sunburns or reduce the look of stretch marks. I use only two drops for my entire face.
Don’t just take my word. TotalBeauty.com named Pure Marula Facial Oil “one of the best oils for a perfect complexion.”
Helping Disadvantaged Women To Educate Their Children
Marula works with disadvantaged women across Africa, who meticulously harvest the Marula fruit. These industrious women use the income they earn to feed, clothe and educate their children. “Our company now provides sustainable income for over 7,000 women. We hope to partner with over 20,000 women by 2016,” a company spokeswoman told me.
Pure Marula Facial Oil is the ONLY brand on the market that controls the entire manufacturing process, from tree to shelf, to harvest its oil. Other brands called Marula buy in bulk from other manufacturers, whose cheaper oils are made by cutting corners and are devoid of most beneficial nutrients. This also is the only doctor-endorsed beauty oil. “It has tremendous cosmetic and healing benefits,” said Dr. Ashton Kaidi, a board certified plastic surgeon, who clinically tested the oil on breast surgery patients. Astounded by the results and improved healing, Dr. Kaidi joined the effort to bring Pure Marula Facial Oil to all women.
