This unique and beautiful African oil has an incredible deep orange colouring and is a rich source of vitamin E and pro-vitamin A in the form of carotenoids. It contains about 15 times more carotenoids than carrots which might explain its vibrant colour! Made from palms using traditional methods, there are no commercial plantation-grown palm fruits used in the oil production. This exclusive oil comes in its natural state; it has not been refined in any way and contains all its natural vitamins and antioxidants.
Red palm oil is widely used as a skin moisturiser and is reputed to be excellent for dry skin. The high levels of vitamin A has a rejuvenating effect on the skin, helping dry and weathered skin. Vitamin E is a fantastic skin vitamin and has a positive effect on problem skin. Firm at room temperature, red palm oil melts quickly on skin contact. In Africa, red palm oil will always be fluid but in our cooler climes we have a wonderful ready made soft butter with an amazing colour. This is great for adding to your own recipes to give them a bit of colour. On its own it melts very easily into the skin and has a rich earthy scent.
