The production of Marula Oil provides rural women an essential sustainable source of income with which they feed, clothe, and educate their families. Marula Oil has a higher concentration of oleic acid and is rapidly absorbed into the skin avoiding a greasy feel. We also had an independent lab test the antioxidant power of Marula Oil versus Argan Oil. Marula Oil has 50% more anti-oxidants than Argan. Anti-oxidants fight the free radicals can lead to premature aging and skin damage. Marula Oil is also very stable and has a longer shelf life than Argan Oil.
