Texiterra™ Marula Oil

Texiterra™ Marula Oil is a non-greasy cold pressed oil rich in fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. It protects and hydrates the skin for a radiant tone and moisturises hair for a silky-soft feel.

The Marula tree has a spiritual status in Southern Africa and for the Zulu tribe symbolises women’s fertility, softness and tenderness. Marula kernels are so full of oil that squeezing by hand alone can release a rich yield.
