Even if you haven’t heard of baobab oil, you might recognize the tree it comes from. The baobab tree has a tall, thick trunk and looks like it’s upside down with its roots in the air.
This fruit tree grows in the southern countries of Africa, such as Malawi, Kenya, and Madagascar.
The scientific name for the baobab tree is Adansonia digitata. In Africa, people call it “the tree of life” and “pharmacy tree” because of its many uses, including for baobab oil.
A clinical trial found that baobab oil may help improve acne in some people. This is because it's high in linoleic acid, a kind of omega-3 fatty acid that has anti-inflammatory properties. For this reason, baobab oil may help reduce skin redness, irritation, and swelling to treat acne.
Baobab Oil is to be used as part of a healthy lifestyle. For additional health and nutritional support call +233 (55) 355 6279 and speak to our Naturopath at LifeWellness Wholistic and Ayurveda Center.
