“I left it right there and its gone!” said Susan. Her bottle of Marula Oil was sitting on her desk and had disappeared. “I remember leaving my camera right next to it, after the photo shoot and now it has disappeared,” she cried.
We had our suspicions, we had several clues but couldn’t quite pinpoint the culprit until we stumbled upon this...
As he sits perched, observing and reporting your families “naughty and nice” traditions, there’s something else he discovered sitting on your beauty shelf and he runs home to tell to Santa. That bottle of Marula oil you’ve been using has definitely caught his interest, and here’s why!
The North Pole is cold! The wind and cold dry Elf's skin during his trips back home at night. He couldn't help but notice that your face and hands are staying smooth and radiant with your “magical” oil that protects your skin locking in moisture giving your skin that holiday glow.
We know Marula is on Santa’s list thanks to our watchful friends, just don’t be surprised if your bottle feels a little lighter after your elf leaves, he just had to try some Marula for himself! Read more

The scientific contributions of Jane Goodall are undeniable. She spent 45 years studying the social and environmental interactions of wild chimpanzees in Tanzania. Her work challenged the thinking of her time and greatly shaped future theories about species development. Beyond this, we have a great respect for her commitment to her passions, which is why she is a woman that inspires us.
Even before her first trip, Jane was passionate about Africa and animals. She first visited Africa in 1957, where she contacted naturalist Louis Leakey, father of The Leakey Collection Founder, Philip Leakey. She wanted to discuss animals with Louis, but he offered her a position as a secretary and she accepted. Louis Leakey believed studying wild chimpanzees could offer insight into animal behaviors. After some quiet planning he asked Jane to study primate behavior in London before returning to Tanzania to Gombre Stream Nation Park to study the apes. He suggested that the entire study might take ten years, - Jane thought at most three - and she agreed to take the position. Read more
