I have to admit I had never heard of Marula Oil until very recently. I am always eager to check out a new natural product, so I decided to look more into the oil. I was impressed with what I learned and was happy to find skincare products that were incorporating this ingredient into some very nice lotions. One of my favorites is Caithy's Marula Rich Moisturizer. It is 100% natural and utilizes the Marula Oil in combination with other great moisturizers such as Shea Butter and Aloe Vera to thoroughly moisturize skin.
Marula Oil comes from the nut of the Marula tree. Marula Oil is very rich in Omega 9 - oleic and Omega 6-linoleic, both essential fatty acids that are known to deeply moisturize skin and additionally improve skin elasticity while promoting healing. It also contains large amounts of antioxidants. Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and flavinoids are all a component of Marula Oil. These antioxidants are an excellent defense against premature aging skin and are great for neutralizing any free radicals.
Caithy Organics is an all natural skincare company based in New Zealand. They use top quality ingredients, all certified organic and are not tested on animals. Caithy's Marula Rich Moisturizer is very light, is not greasy, and it absorbs quickly into the skin. It also has a pleasant light scent. Most importantly, it contains active plant stem cells, the workhorse that provides the natural defenses that protect and hydrate the skin. It also helps to stimulate collagen production.
Caithy's Marula Oil Moisturizer is suitable for all skin types. I tend to have oily skin, so a moisturizer that absorbs fast and leaves no oily shine behind is perfect for me. The benefits of the Marula Oil Moisturizer are endless. Skin looks fresh and healthy rather than dull and dry. Skin is protected against free radicals and anti-aging properties help keep wrinkles at a minimum.
It's easy to use. Apply it after cleansing to your face, neck and cleavage. It's gentle enough to apply twice a day, morning and night. I also think it would be great on the tops of hands, where many women really show their age.
If you want to try out the benefits of Marula Oil, I suggest trying Caithy's because it's a perfect go-to all around moisturizer that's loaded with good ingredients.
