about the product
Bao-Med Pure Skin, Scalp & Hair Oil is certified organic baobab oil, cold pressed and unrefined. This warmly golden coloured oil is extracted from the seeds of the African baobab tree.
Bao-Med Pure Skin, Scalp & Hair Oil is a superb skin moisturiser that deeply nourishes, repairs and takes care of the skin. Bao-Med oil relieves red, dry and scaly skin and supports natural skin recovery. The baobab oil contains the perfect balance omega 3, 6 and 9, allowing it to penetrate deep into the skin without blocking the pores.
The baobab oil can be used directly on the skin or can be mixed with a body lotion or day/night cream. When using the oil specifically to moisturize dry skin problems, use the oil every day for a few weeks.
Baobab oil also has excellent benefits for the hair and is therefore very suitable to use as a hair serum. With 1 or 2 drops of oil you can keep static hair under control and it gives the hair a natural shine.
Fatty acid profile of baobab oil
18 – 30% Palmitic Acid (Saturated)
- Palmitic acid is a great emollient and helps reinforce the barrier function of the skin.
25 – 37% Linoleic Acid (Polyunsaturated)
- Linoleic assists in the regeneration of the skin barrier
- Linoleic acid effectively absorbs into the skin and thus increases skin moistness and gives the skin a light, dry feel.
- Linoleic acid is a natural component of sebum and plays a significant role in strengthening the lipid barrier of the epidermis and normalizing skin metabolism.
- Thus, it is an excellent therapeutic topical treatment for acne-prone skin as linoleic acid helps balance the sebum production in the skin.
30 – 44% Oleic Acid (Monounsaturated)
- Forms a barrier on the skin and thus reduces trans epidermal water loss (TEWL).
- It helps seal in the moisture.
- Great for very dry and aging skin.
12% Other fatty acids
