A symbol of wisdom and longevity

According to a Kilimanjaro myth, the Almighty from above pulled the baobab out of heaven and replanted it on Earth upside down because it was too proud. And indeed, the tree does appear "upside down" with its large, swollen trunk topped by gnarled branches that resemble enormous roots. The baobab is an emblematic tree of sub-Saharan Africa and like the shea, is also known as the “tree of life”. It stands out for its enormous size, incredible lifespan (around 2,000 years) and multiple uses and benefits.

Cosmetic Effectiveness

Ideal for fighting against the harmful effects of the sun

In cosmetics, baobab leaves, which are rich in anti-free radical flavonoids, produce an extract that helps protect cellular communication from the harmful effects of UV rays. The organic oil extracted from baobab seeds is well-known for its ability to strengthen and smooth the nail structure.
