I usually write about hair products, so it was definitely a nice change when I was sent Marula The Leakey Collection Pure Marula Oil ($78.00).
Katy & Phillip Leakey founded the Leakey Collection in 2002, hence the name. It’s a fair trade company built upon the principles of providing Kenyans with entrepreneurial opportunities without disturbing their environment or culture.
The Leakeys have dedicated their lives to bringing superior products to the West, so people around the world can connect to communities in East Africa. They founded T.R.A.D.E., which gives funding to schools, health initiatives and work opportunities for women in East Africa.
Marula Oil is endorsed by Dr. Ashton Kaidi, a board certified plastic surgeon. He tested the healing benefits personally on breast cancer patients who underwent radiation treatment, and was shocked by the improved healing and overall results. The oil is made from marula nuts and hosts a bunch of benefits:
– Omega rich with moisturizing benefits
– Fast-absorbing, non-greasy formula
– Provides long lasting hydration
– Naturally heals to reduce inflammation & redness
– Leaves skin soft, supple & glowing
– Leads to improvement in skin’s elasticity & firmness with consistent use
– Appropriate for all skin types
– 50% more antioxidants than argan oil
I tried it for a week and absolutely became obsessed with it! My skin felt softer, smoother and definitely looked less dry. I also looked younger! I love the way it smells and how it feels on my skin. I used it twice a day and even used it on my hands.
If the directions allowed it, I probably would have bathed in it. This is one of the best face and neck products I have tried in ages. The product worked as it claimed and the company was built on one commendable cause — two great reasons to try this product! With continued use, I am sure I will be even more thrilled with the results!
It is sold at marula.com, professional beauty salons & spas, Sephora retail & e-commerce stores.
