A beauty secret for generations, Namibian women use marula oil to keep their skin smooth and hydrated. We love to use this rich beauty ingredient in everything from lipsticks to body oils.
We’re proud that our trade has helped Namibian women raise the funds to build their own factory, as well as invest in livestock and pay school fees for their children. Some of the women tell us that the co-operative’s work has brought “a real friendship and sense of community”.
The marula tree is the spiritual heart of rural village life in Ovamboland, Namibia. Relying on the marula tree helps protect the land from deforestation for cattle ranching and encourages communities to grow new seedlings, protecting the trees for future generations.
