In need of some serious hydration for skin, hair, and body? Say hello to our 2 newest oils: Marula Oil and Rosehip Oil! They’re versatile enough for both skin and hair, play well with moisturizers, and are packed with beneficial nutrients. These pure oils are organic, cold-pressed, and undiluted – everything you want from a quality facial oil.


Getting the Most from Multi-Purpose Oils

It’s no secret that we love plant oils; you’ll find these beauty elixirs in just about every natural product we make. Oils can be mixed with other lotions and creams for a boost of hydration and hint of glow.

Multi-purpose oils can play versatile roles in your beauty routine. Mixing an oil with your moisturizer can allow nutrients to reach deeper layers of your skin, meaning better results. Adding an oil to your body cream will enhance penetration of the active ingredients, producing faster and more noticeable hydrating benefits.

Since marula and rosehip oils are lightweight and fast-absorbing, they’re great for hair. Adding a few drops to your hair serum can enhance heat protection and repair damaged or broken hair. Using it regularly also promotes healthy hair growth, a healthy scalp, and smoother ends.


The Benefits of Marula and Rosehip Oils

Both marula and rosehip oils are multitasking marvels. You can use them for acne control, moisture balance, and defense against premature aging. Keep reading for an intro on our 2 newest plant oils!

Organic Rosehip Oil
Cold-pressed, cruelty-free, gluten-free, non-toxic, vegan, fragrance-free, organic

THE ORIGINS
Rosehip has been utilized as an ancient remedy by the Ancient Egyptians, Mayans, and Native Americans for centuries. This nutrient-dense oil is obtained from the seed and fruit – rather than the fragrant petals – of the rosa canina (rose) bush.

THE OIL
Deeply hydrating rosehip oil is rich in vitamins and omega fatty acids to deeply replenish thirsty skin and hair. This cold-pressed oil offers maximum potency to effectively target fine lines, loss of elasticity, and uneven skin tone. The essential fatty acids in rosehip oil renew the hair follicle to encourage healthy, lustrous growth.


Skin Type: All skin types, especially dry or sensitive
Concerns: Signs of aging, loss of elasticity, scars or stretch marks


Rosehip Oil Facts:

  • A translucent, deep yellow-orange oil

  • Has a pleasant nutty scent, with hints of yeast and earth

  • Gentle enough for all skin types; especially suitable for dry skin

  • Soothing for dry or irritated skin, thanks to its rich moisture content

  • Helps minimize the signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles

  • Aids in lightening dark spots and fading acne scars

Organic Marula Oil
Cold-pressed, cruelty-free, gluten-free, non-toxic, vegan, fragrance-free, organic

THE ORIGINS
Marula oil has a rich history in African culture. The Marula Tree (Sclerocarya birrea) is known as the “The king of African trees” and is one Africa’s largest indigenous plants. The Sclerocarya birrea belongs to the same family as the mango, pistachio, and cashew nut trees.

Marula seed oil is extracted from the fruit of the female Marula tree. The oblong fruits have a leathery yellow exterior and white, fibrous flesh wherein the seed/pit is embedded.

Fun fact: elephants have been known to feed on the sun-ripened fruit of the marula tree, which slowly ferments and acquires an alcoholic composition (where the brand Drunk Elephant got its name).

THE OIL
Lightweight and fast-absorbing marula oil is rich in vitamins and omega fatty acids to replenish dry or aging skin and thirsty hair. This cold-pressed oil helps smooth and minimize fine lines, softens stretch marks, and keeps skin hydrated and well-nourished. The oleic and linoleic acids in marula oil support soft, lustrous locks. Vitamins E and C rejuvenate the skin for a youthfully supple glow.


Skin Type: Normal to dry
Concerns: Dryness, environmental damage, signs of aging


Organic Marula Oil Facts:

  • A clear oil with a faint golden hue

  • Odorless to most, yet some may detect a slight nutty or fruity scent

  • Suitable for normal to dry skin types

  • Balances hyperpigmentation, age spots, scars, and uneven skin texture

  • Soothing for dry skin conditions, like flaky skin or severe dry patches

  • Helps minimize signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles

  • Aids in lightening dark spots and acne scars

  • Smooths and gives hair lustrous shine

  • Contains fatty acids to maintain healthy, youthful skin

  • Promotes a brighter complexion

  • High antioxidant content helps defend against free radicals
