This gentle body oil is macerated in Organic Redbush, which contributes to the oil's nutrients! This Elixir has been formulated with oils that literally sink between the layers of your skin cells. It locks in moisture and restores suppleness and elasticity because oils mimic the natural lipids found in our bodies.
The oils are light and absorb quickly, leaving nourished silky-smooth skin. It is multi-functional and as well as nourishment for your skin, it can be used for body massage, face cleanser, hair mask, to condition your cuticles, or a shave oil. It gives a brilliant close shave
A COUPLE OF SUGGESTIONS
Gently rub into damp skin after a warm bath or shower for maximum absorption. The oil will trap the water particles on your skin keeping it hydrated for longer.
Apply the oil to your dry face. Gently massage the oil into the skin with your fingertips. This will remove impurities like makeup and dead skin cells, let it penetrate the skin.
Use a damp, warm washcloth to gently wipe away the oil - do not scrub. We like to cover our face with the warm, damp facecloth and press it ever so gently with our cupped hands. Rinse the cloth with warm water and repeat two or three times. It really opens the pores!
Your face should be hydrated when you’re done, but not greasy or irritated from wiping it down.
Pat dry with a towel.
It is also a great oil for dry hair. Warm a couple of drops of oil between the palm of your hands, and run through the ends of your hair and style. Use sparingly!
For a deep treatment, slightly heat the oil and leave it in for at least 20 mins (or overnight), then shampoo and style.
Wash the area you want to shave with warm water, this softens the hair stubble.
Rub a few drops of oil between the palms of your hands and massage it into the skin with circular motions.
Keep your skin wet during your shave, the water will act as a carrier for the oil.
Shave with the grain.

Virgin Baobab Oil
Baobab oil has significant levels of gamma-tocopherol (Vitamin E) (4-5) and contains Omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids.
Known for its moisturising abilities, clinical trials in Italy on cold-pressed baobab oil have shown that, after 4 weeks of use, significant improvements are seen in the skin elasticity of subjects.(Ambrosia Lab. Evaluation of Instrumental Variation of Skin Elasticity Induced by Cosmetic Products: Baobab Seed Oil. Ferrara, Italy.)
Cacay has triple the natural Retinol of Rosehip, and compared to Argan it has twice the Linoleic Acid and 50% more Vitamin E.
It is rich in skin-nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids and considered the champion of anti-aging skincare.
