Baobab oil has very specific qualities which facilitate healing skin. It is rich in essential fatty acids Omega 3,6 and Omega 9 which are know to enable healthy tissue regeneration in a short space of time. It also absorbs rapidly so its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial qualities can rapidly assist cell regeneration.
The word eczema comes from the Greek word ekzein meaning “to boil out” and the millions of people who suffer from it will certainly agree. The dry, swollen red, flaky and inflamed skin irritation is enough to drive anyone to boiling point! Read on to find out why Baobab oil on its own can be so helpful for Eczema and other inflammatory skin conditions.
Baobab oil absorbs rapidly, is non-siccative (non-drying) and does not clog pores. Most creams and lotions on the market today are water-based which means they also require synthetic preservatives, stabilizers, performance enhancers and fragrances to maintain stability and make them pleasant to use. The wonderful thing about using botanical oils is that they rarely need any of these additives.
