Hydrating skin oils have come a long way since I was first introduced to the concept through Decleor products. I loved the feel of those oils, however with my oily, acne prone skin I was always concerned about adding more oil to the problem. Formulators have searched far and deep for lighter, quicker absorbing, and even anti-microbial oils that won’t exacerbate breakouts for people with acne prone and oily skin types. One such oil is Marula, found in the nut of the Marula fruit tree. Indigenous to Namibia, Africa, the Marula tree has been used for centuries in skin and hair care. The oil is light, fast absorbing, and full of beneficial nutrients and essential fatty acids for fighting oxidation, even more so than Argan oil. Vitamins E and C are present in high quantities and are excellent for correcting sun damage and promoting wound healing. Omegas and fatty acids improve skin elasticity, soften lines, and reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
Marula oil is one of the base oils in the Active Infusion Serum by Josh Rosebrook Skincare. It’s a perfect light-weight hydrator for use alone or layered with the Hydrating Accelerator for extra moisture. When used together, the Serum locks in the aloe-based hydration provided by the Accelerator. During winter months when skin tends to dry out from indoor heating and low humidity outdoors, skin needs extra help maintaining water and oil levels or it becomes tight, itchy, and chapped.
