Baobab Oil

INCI: Adansonia Digitata (Baobab) Seed Oil

Overview

Pressed from the seeds of the baobab tree, baobab oil is a luxurious, nutrient-rich oil with many health benefits. It’s a plant-based moisturizer with a plethora of antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin E, and omega fatty acids. Baobab oil is ideal to use on skin and hair because of its lightweight, smooth texture that absorbs quickly and isn’t greasy. 
Baobab is an excellent moisturizer and rejuvenator of skin cells. It’s high in antioxidants that prevent free radicals that cause premature ageing. Baobab is anti-inflammatory because of its content of omega fatty acids making it great for sensitive, inflamed skin prone to allergenic conditions such as dermatitis and eczema.

Is baobab oil comedogenic?


No. Baobab oil has a comedogenic rating of 2. This means that it won’t clog most people’s pores.

But if you have sensitive skin or oily skin, using oils like the baobab’s can cause clogged pores and other skin irritation.


The baobab tree is considered to be a Lost Crop™— an undervalued wild plant with powerful health benefits. By including baobab oil in your skincare ritual, you’re helping bring value to the tree and protect biodiversity. Baobab oil is a one-ingredient powerhouse, so you can rest assured that you’re not putting any unnecessary chemicals, fillers, or mystery ingredients on your skin.


If you have very oily, acne-prone, or sensitive skin, use baobab oil sparingly. It may block some people’s pores, which can cause or worsen acne. It may also lead to skin irritation or rash in some people.
