Marula Oil

Marula oil comes from the ripened fruit of the marula tree which is native to many parts of central and southern Africa. We support the women  of the co-operative  who extract the kernels from ripe marula fruits by hand, then cold-press the kernels to harvest the marula oil inside. Our  approach to harvesting the marula oil is environmentally conscious with a social aim of community upliftment empowering women and youth in Africa.

Social Responsibility

We are very passionate about our community projects working with women and youth  in economic empowerment.
