CAS #: 68956-68-3
EINECS: 273-313-5
Brand: Biochemica®

Sclerocarya bierra (marula) seeds yield an oil that has one of the highest levels of oleic (omega -9) fatty acids found in nature. Polyphenols (inflammation reduction) and tocopherols (anti-aging activity) are readily available, with Biochemica® Marula Oil Virgin’s unique composition allowing for twice the amount of tocopherols as its better known African-sourced competitor in the personal care industry, argan oil.

Because of its one of a kind composition, marula oil offers exceptional anti-inflammatory activity along with excellent moisture retention properties, making it ideal for use as a treatment oil, in facial serums, as a makeup primer, or as a multipurpose emollient for cosmetic formulations. With its satin-like matte skin feel and extremely quick absorption rate, this oil will be an exotic, safe and effective addition to your personal care formulations, lavishing the skin with extreme moisture while providing protection from environmental stressors.
