All our products are handcrafted from the finest African carrier oils, butters and gums available.
African seed oils are rich in fatty acids which have several beneficial properties to both skin and hair. Fatty acids are divided into saturated acids (e.g. palmitic; stearic; arachidic) and unsaturated acids (e.g. oleic; linoleic). Palmitic, oleic and stearic acids are synthesised in the body but linoleic acid is not and a deficiency will cause various signs.
As the skin dries out and becomes scaly, hair loss as well as trans epidermal water loss increases. Linoleic acid is important because it moisturises the skin and aids in the healing process and it’s used for the treatment of Acne.
