Finally, it is important to note that many of the currently available “Baobab oil” products are made of predominantly silicone ingredients and which contain very little baobab oil. These products probably will not reveal the full beneficial properties of baobab oil for you.Fortunately, it is possible to obtain 100% pure baobab oil and Baobab extracts infused products right here, from Baobab Essential.

All the products that Baobab offers use all-natural, plant-based ingredients & therefore are extremely gentle on sensitive & ultra-sensitive skin. However, it must be understood that an individual can be allergic to anything, whether natural or synthetic.

Q.How long until I see a noticeable effect on my skin?
The length of time required to restore health to the skin depends on the skin’s condition & the products used, as well as lifestyle & diet. A daily regimen of cleansing, toning & moisturizing can produce noticeable effects within several days. Proper nutrition & a holistic skin care routine can restore balance to the skin. We suggest using products for at least one or two weeks to allow the skin a period of acclimation, accompanied by good diet, proper exercise & adequate water intake.
