About Us
Our goal is to create high-quality natural beauty products while providing a sustainable lifeline for African women and their families. Partnered with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ashton Kaidi to present the first ever doctor-endorsed beauty oil, we are working to bring schools and other enriching programs to the communities with which we partner to harvest this amazing natural beauty oil.

Our Story

Our company’s Marula journey began when a group of anthropologists traveled to Africa to study human fossils.  While on this African excavation site, they noticed the local women using oils from the indigenous Marula tree nut on their skin.  This miracle oil kept their skin cleansed, hydrated, and protected from the harsh environment. It was also used to heal skin from minor cuts and abrasions.  Fascinated by this local practice and discovery, the anthropologists brought the oil to the US and enlisted American plastic surgeon Dr. Ashton Kaidi to study the benefits of their find.

Dr. Kaidi’s research revealed the powerful and potent anti-oxidant benefits of this precious Marula oil.  Dubbed the “elixir of youth,” our Marula oil combines modern technology with an ancient beauty secret that has been passed down through generations.  Our oil is wild harvested (organic), hand selected, and cold pressed with no added chemicals.  Every product in our line is based on this Marula oil.

Recognizing the importance of the Marula tree to the local communities, we are an active and longtime investor in a fair-trade partnership with local African governments.  This partnership continues to enable the Marula brand to share the economic benefits of this ingredient with the local farming women and their families while bringing superior potent anti-oxidant Marula oil to women around the world.

Changing Lives, Empowering Women

Our Marula oil is sustainably farmed in Africa supporting thousands of underprivileged women to provide food and education for their children.

Women across Africa work in partnership with Marula Pure Beauty Oil to wild harvest the fallen marula fruit, hand crack the nuts and carefully select only the purest blonde kernels to be cold pressed for Pure Marula Oil. With the proceeds that they earn, these industrious women feed, clothe and educate their children. Marula Pure Beauty Oil subsidizes the families’ earnings, building day care centers and schools in key areas. These proud women are empowered as business women and are a driving force in the success of their communities.
