Today I am back with an article which will enlighten all you beautiful ladies about the awesome beauty benefits of marula oil. For the uninitiated, marula oil is extracted from the marula trees’ seeds, which are indigenous to South Africa and Madagascar by the local village people. The oil is highly nutritious, fast absorbing and suits almost every skin type including sensitive kinds. As a fun fact, marula tree’s fruit contains 4 times as much Vitamin C as a medium sized orange and 60 percent more antioxidants than your favourite argan oil. Read on to know about the beauty benefits and uses of this oil.

2. Makes skin more youthful: It also improves and restores the glow of skin, making it look more radiant, fresh and youthful.
3. Contains a high amount of Vitamin E: High Vitamin E content in marula ensures that your skin gets a boost of collagen and elastin so that it remains firm and supple.
4. Fights against free radicals: Antioxidants in marula fight against free radicals to prevent and slow down the process of ageing and various types of cancers.
