Baobab oil is more moisturizing than Argon oil on the face, and can be used for both skin and hair. It is best absorbed on wet skin.
Baobab oil is absorbent on wet skin, but not so much on dry. Therefore, Baobab oil is best applied as part of a shower routine, or on a wet clean face.
Place a few drops in the palm of your hand (about half a dropper or the size of a dime), then apply the oil to a wet face, around eyes, lips, neck and behind ears. Rinse your hands while you let the oil absorb into your skin. Allow the water on your face dry naturally, or lightly dab your face with a towel.
Baobab oil is a great solution if you find that your face becomes very dry immediately after washing. You’ll notice that your skin feels less dry and thirsty after washing, and you’ll likely need less face moisturizer (if any). Once you’ve tried it, Baobab oil will likely become a staple of your morning routine.

About Baobab Oil
Baobab oil is made from baobab seeds. The seeds are found in large capsule-like fruit which grow on baobab trees. The seeds are extracted from baobab fruit by cracking the hard outer capsule. The extracted seeds are then washed to remove a powder coating and then air dried in the hot sun. These seeds can be stored for many months before pressing. Baobab oil is made by a cold pressing process. A press, or expeller, ‘squeezes’ the oil from the baobab seed. The newly pressed oil is immediately filtered to help clarify the oil which is then bottled.
