Baobab oil, cold pressed
INCI: Adansonia digitata seed oil
Baobab is a versatile in use oil and is suitable as a stabilizing component, especially in oil mixtures for dry and damaged skin barrier. Its high content of saturated fatty acids makes it ideal as a substitute for butter in moisture-binding, fluid emulsions.
It protects the skin against trans epidermal water loss and acts smoothing and barrier-protective.
The fatty acid spectrum contains high palmitic acid. This surpasses other oils with about 23%. It gives the oil a good oxidative stability.
