- Skin Prep: Pure Marula Oil’s satiny, matte finish also makes it a great make-up primer.
- Post Facial Peel: Following facials and chemical peels, the skin is very dry and sensitive which makes Pure Marula Oil excellent for post facial treatments.
Q:Is Pure Marula Oil better for mature skin than other facial oils?
A: Pure Marula Oil is an excellent source of topical antioxidants. This free radical fighting capability is very important. It is also an excellent moisturizer that can help plump up skin to help reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Q:When is the best time to apply Pure Marula Oil?
A: Pure Marula Oil can be used day or night as a highly effective moisturizer for your face, neck, and décolleté. During the night, it is perfect because skin replenishes itself during sleep. During the day, Pure Marula Oil provides optimal hydration that your skin needs to stay healthy and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For dry skin, apply it more frequently as needed.
Q:Can I use Pure Marula Oil if I have very oily skin?
A: Yes. Oils are essential to your skin’s health because they hold together your skin cells. As skin ages, less of these oils are produced, so it is vital to add them back into your skin to maintain that “youthful” healthy glow. What determines the greasy residue feel is the composition of omega fatty acid contained within the oil. We have found that the higher the concentrations of Omega-9 (aka Oleic Acid) fatty acid in an oil, the easier it penetrates the skin and the more rapidly it is absorbed. Pure Marula Oil is non-comedogenic and does not result in clogged and enlarged pores, minimizing the greasy look and after feel.
