Marula Oil, “the great moisture retainer.” Crafted by nature, tested by time. Copy

Who doesn’t want healthy skin? Beyond appearance, it’s essential. The skin performs so many vital tasks for your body; caring for it is a priority. Ok, so where do you start? 

 

Your skin (whether it’s normal, dry, combination, or oily) loses water every day. An effective moisturizer will reduce evaporation, creating a protective seal on the skin’s surface that lock’s in moisture. But how do you manage, if your skin skews oily? Well… if you don’t moisturize, it will overcompensate by producing more oil. Bummer, right? If your skin leans dry, water loss is evident. Soothing the unbearable tightness, cracks, and redness that comes with the discomfort is must. But with so many options, figuring out what is best for your skin can be daunting. 

 

At Amolee, we’ve got you covered! Our body cream for sensitive skin is free of harsh chemicals and artificial fragrances. Best of all, it’s formulated with 100% pure, pharmaceutical-grade, cold-pressed Marula oil.

 

Why Marula oil? Simple, it’s a gentle powerhouse! Tested by time and nature, it’s been revered as a cure-all for centuries. Native to sub-Saharan Africa, the oil (known as the “great moisture retainer“) is extracted from the tree’s kernels. We love it because it’s made up of compounds that closely mimic the skin. As a result, it’s lightweight and fast absorbing. This means it’s non-greasy and penetrates deep. The outcome is a nutrient-rich boost of: 

  • Amino acids (that support the health of your skin barrier)
  • Fatty acids (to aid in preventing the breakdown of collagen and elastin -proteins that keep your skin firm, soft, and supple)
  • Antioxidants (vitamins C and E) work together to repair the skin

 

It all sounds great, right? But let’s address the elephant in the room. Is Marula oil right for your skin?  Here’s the scoop… Marula excels at sealing in moisture. If your skin is dehydrated or considered normal, dry, very dry or combination, it’s definitely a go-to! However, its fine texture also makes it a good choice for oily skin because it absorbs quickly. Add to this impressive list –anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial benefitsthe outcome? An excellent agent for treating stretch marks, blemishes, and acne-causing bacteria.


Our verdict on Marula oil is a resounding… WOW! What’s yours? Try Amolee Moisturizing Body Cream for Sensitive Skin and let us know!
