Botanical and Traditional Context
The baobab tree is found throughout Africa and is commonly referred to as the ‘Tree of Life’ or ‘Upside Down Tree’. Standing aloft across the African Savannah, the trees are firmly entrenched in the local culture. The baobab fruit ripens during March to June in Southern Africa, and November to December in the northern parts of the continent. Opening the baobab shell reveals a creamy-white coloured pulp that smothers black bean-sized seeds, which are cold-pressed into oil. The resulting seedcake (by-product) is then up-cycled to produce Salala Baobab Exfoliants.
Consisting of moderate abrasiveness, Salala Baobab Exfoliant 500 and 1000 are ideal ‘hero’ ingredients for dislodging dead skin cells.
The word ‘salala’ means to be smooth in the African language of Chichewa, which is spoken in Malawi and Mozambique – where our baobab seeds are sourced.
