Marula Vegetable Oil (Sclerocarya birrea) known as the “African miracle” in the savannas of East Africa, it is from the fruit of Marula that a luxurious vegetable oil rich in linoleic acids, omega 9 and flavonoids is extracted.

Its extremely neutral aroma allows it to be an adjuvant oil with great interest for various types of formulations.

It can be classified as a high–oleic acid (70–78%) with relatively low tocopherol content. The exceptional stability has, therefore, been suggested to be due to its fatty acid composition. However, recent studies have mentioned that some of the minor components in the oil may also be contributing to this important antioxidant property. Marula oil contains a similar fatty acid composition to olive oil; however, it is 10 times more stable to oxidation.
