Do you know what these are? They are the kernels (nuts) of the Marula tree. They could be extracted to Marula oil
which is traditionally used in cosmetics. Marula oil
, an East African product long-renowned for its superb anti-aging and healing properties, is now available in Malaysia as part of the Leakey Collection.
Thanks to Fiona, I and some blogger fellows had the chance to meet the co-founder of Marula oil
, Mr. & Mrs. Leakey in a lovely morning last month at Delicious, Mid Valley.
Mr Philip Leakey has very interesting background, he was raised in both Kenya and Tanzania, and in 1979 became the first and only white Kenyan elected to Parliament. In 2002, Philip founded the Leakey Collection
with his wife, Katy. Mrs. Katy Leakey was born and raised in southern California and relocated permanently to Kenya in 2001. They are friendly and down-to-earth, and have shared a lot of wild experience with us during the blogger event.
Now, back to the core product, the Marula oil
. Marula Oil
is wild-harvested from marula nuts in East Africa and cold-pressed to retain its full goodness. Marula Oil
is an all-natural product of the Leakey Collection, a lifestyle company focusing on fair trade enterprises.
They deal directly with the Maasai community to ensure that they are reimbursed in full for the value of their work. Through their efforts, they create thousands of jobs, empower the African communities they work with and encourage economic savviness and independence among the local women, who are traditionally viewed as non-breadwinners.
is light and natural, it is absorbed into the skin without any residue or greasy feeling afterward. It has higher antioxidant levels than grapeseed or even argan oil, it’s a boon for all skin types and needs.
owes its rejuvenating powers to its high content of oleic acids, which boose skin hydration, and antioxidants, phenolic compounds and flavonoids, which fight free radicals and combat the signs of aging. This unique combination of ingredients makes Marula Oil
the superior choice for cosmetic use.
has also proven especially beneficial for breast cancer survivors, where its use accelerated the healing of burns and blisters post-radiation treatments. In clinical studies by conducted by Dr. Ashton Kaidi(Board certified plastic surgeon and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons), women using Marula Oil
found their surgical scars also faded more quickly, and the affected skin healed faster overall. In US-run clinical studies, the oil soothed irritation, blisters and swelling from radition treatment more rapidly and effectively than regular moisturisers.
I have given the Marula Oil
to my mum(in her late 50s) to try. Mum likes it absorb quickly and non-greasy feeling after application. After 2 weeks of using Marula Oil day and night, I found that mum’s skin is softer, supple, more elastic, and less fine lines, wrinkles. Mum’s face is not that dry compared to 2 weeks ago. Mum has even brought the Marula Oil
to her Hong Kong trip last week, she found that the oil is working great in cold winter weather too!
is distributed by Newage Sdn. Bhd here in Malaysia. Marula Oil
is available at Vitacare Pharmacy Mid Valley and KLCC for RM 299 per 50ml bottle.
