Marula Oil Moisturizer: A Hydrating Skin Superhero

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No…! It’s marula oil, coming to the rescue for dry and damaged skin!

Marula oil moisturizer, known as “Africa’s beauty secret,” is a deeply nourishing oil extracted from the seeds and inner shell of the Sclerocarya birrea (marula tree) fruit in South Africa. This rejuvenating oil has so many beneficial properties and uses that it truly is a superhero for skin care as well as hair care! Here are a few marula oil benefits for your skin and hair.

At Ayr Skin Care it’s one of our favorite ingredients, and even has its own starring role in our 100% pure Virgin Marula Oil.

Deep Hydration

Marula oil moisturizer is best known for its hydrating properties. Rich in the essential fatty acids omega-6 and omega-9, marula oil provides deep hydration to the skin and strengthens the skin’s natural moisture barrier, preventing moisture loss and balancing your skin’s natural oil production for a healthier texture.

Soothes and Heals

Did you ever wonder how women in the southern regions of Africa achieve such smooth, glowing skin? Much of this is thanks to marula oil benefits—especially the many vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants present in organic, cold-pressed marula oil moisturizer.

Oleic acid and linoleic acid essential fatty acids are deeply healing, contributing to this oil’s amazing power to soothe the skin and provide instant relief from irritation. The antioxidants speed up skin cell renewal, promoting healing and youthfulness for a smoother, more radiant tone.

Rejuvenates Aging and Damaged Skin

We’ve mentioned the healing marula oil benefits thanks to antioxidants, but that’s only one of the superpowers of the catechins and flavonoids present in this wonder oil. Antioxidants are known for their anti-aging properties and power for combatting free radical damage to cells. Marula oil moisturizer boosts collagen production for plumper, firmer skin, and helps to restore its elasticity so that fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable.

Nourishes and Soothes Frizzy Hair

Marula oil moisturizer is a multi-purpose oil—you can even use it on your hair! If your hair is dry and wiry or you struggle with unwanted frizz, massage some marula oil into damp hair and this will help to soothe the frizz and smooth the strands for a shinier, softer texture. Because the oil is so pure and has no added chemicals, oils, or pesticides, you can use it anywhere on your body or hair with confidence. Now THAT’s a super oil!

How to Apply

This “luxury oil” might seem expensive for the quantity that comes in the bottle, but the good news is that a little really does go a long way. You only need 2-3 drops, which you hold in your palm for a few seconds until warm and then press into the damp skin of your face, neck, and décolleté as part of your daily skincare routine.
