Our logo is the African Baobab tree. One of the most magnificent trees on the planet, the Baobab produces oil from its seeds that is non-irritating and non-allergenic, excellent for soothing and restoring moisture to the skin. It contains vitamins A and F (rejuvenation and cell renewal) and vitamin E (anti-oxidant and anti-aging effects.) Often used for treating eczema and psoriasis.
The tree grows 40 to 75 feet tall and has a trunk 30 to 60 feet in diameter. Scientists have dated the age of some Baobabs as being more than 2,000 years old. Home to many animal species. The fruit has a velvety shell and is about the size of a coconut. It has an acidic, tart flavor, described as somewhere between grapefruit, pear, and vanilla. The dried fruit powder contains about 12% water and various nutrients, including carbohydrates, dietary fiber, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, potassium and iron. It contains 50% more calcium than spinach, is high in antioxidants, and has three times the vitamin C of an orange. You will find extracts from the Baobab fruit in most of our Purifying line of products.
