It is perfect for rehydrating very dry skin.

It is very suitable for damaged hair and very dry scalp.

In the Senegalese pharmacopoeia, it is also recognized as  healing and anti-inflammatory. 

It is very slightly comedogenic and not very sensitive to oxidation.

It's called "the tree planted upside down" in West Africa.


This organic Adansonia (a kind of baobab) vegetable oil from South Africa is 100% natural and first cold pressed.


The African Adansonia or Baobab is the best known of the eight baobab species. This typical West African tree has a slow growth, one can find trees older than 2,000 years.

Its name comes from the Arabic bu hibab, which means «fruit with many seeds».

From these seeds comes the oil we use in skin products.

In Africa the oil, leaves, fruits, roots of young trees and even the bark are known for their nutritional as well as medicinal virtues.

Softening and restructuring, Adansonia oil is an ideal ingredient for the care of tight and dry skin as well as for hair treatments and for hair in great need of hydration.
