Marula Oil is harvested in the north central regions of Namibia.
The fruit of the marula tree is traditionally used by the Oshivambo people to make juice, beer and oil, and women predominately harvest the marula fruit. The women that collect and harvest the marula fruit are part of a co-operative called Eudafano Women’s Co-operative (EWC).
Marula oil is extracted from the kernels of the fruit. The fruit is collected and the kernel extracted by the women. The kernels are then taken to the EWC factory in Ondangwa where they are processed by cold pressing them to extract the oil.
Marula oil is rich in linoleic fatty acid, antioxidants and oleic acid, which are essential for the preservation of healthy skin. The oil is easily absorbed into the skin and naturally softens, nourishes and revitalizes
