It is no longer a secret that the Baobab fruit, an exotic product of the African savannas, is excellent for shiny and glowing skin. The wonderful baobab powder not just tightens and tones our skin, it also moisturizes it and encourages skin cell regeneration.
Rich in various antioxidants such as vitamin A, D, E and B complexes that have anti-ageing properties, Baobab is also a storehouse of fatty acids and minerals that help improve skin elasticity, heal damaged skin and restore skin complexion.
In fact, Baobab contains 20 times more antioxidants than green tea and more than blueberries and pomegranates combined! And its fruit pulp’s Vitamin C content is fifteen times that of an orange! (10). Giving you the perfect nutrition for healthy skin.
Now let us talk about the Baobab powder’s miraculous ability to ward off early signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles.
Ageing generally occurs when the elastin and collagen production in our skin starts falling and when the gravity starts to take effect. This causes the skin to sag and wrinkle even more. In addition to this, free radicals produced by the body can also further accelerate the ageing process.
Thankfully, baobab powder is rich in antioxidants that fight these free radicals for a visually brighter, suppler skin.
Another major skin benefit that Baobab powder offers is minimizing the appearance of scar tissue. Vitamin C and essential fatty acids in the powder improve blood circulation to the scar tissue which fastens up the healing of the skin.
