O.K., Marula Beauties! You were our inspiration when you shared the different ways you were using Marula - The Leakey Collection...like adding a drop to your favorite cleanser. Many of you told us how much you loved our Marula oil that it was all you were using for your daily moisturizer. And some of you might have had reservations about using an oil on your face and wondered when we would be extending our line to include a facial lotion. You inspired us to work hard and we wanted to get it just right for you. The waiting is over... introducing our two new additions we hope you will love as much as we do!

As summer cruises into the hotter and sunnier months, it’s important not to forget about taking care of your skin this season. Here are a few of our favorite Marula Beauty tips to keep your skin moisturized, healthy, and protected.
Your Mistake: Not applying often enough
An ABC (only applying during August, baseball games, and concerts) sunscreen regimen is not enough to fully protect your skin during the summer. Even if the sun doesn’t feel hot you are still being exposed to damaging rays. So skipping the sunscreen at your office patio party, while grilling on the deck on Saturday afternoon, or before you hit the outlet mall is causing more damage than you think.
Your enemies: Free Radicals
Free radicals penetrate the skin to attack healthy cells. The main sources of free radicals? Sun and pollution.
That’s where antioxidants come in; they can help protect the face from these sources. Marula oil contains Vitamin E and other high antioxidant powers that can help protect against free radicals and is an excellent source of topical antioxidants, the free radical fighting capability is very important for skin.

Dr. Ashton Kaidi, a board certified plastic surgeon and endorser of Marula – The Leakey Collection facial oil, hears a common refrain from many of his patients: how many products do I really need for an effective skincare regimen? Is it true that more is better? And, how much is too much?
In this age of easy access to multiple choices it’s understandable that it seems difficult to decode the seemingly complex world of skincare in the new millennium. Yet, Dr. Kaidi says it’s actually quite simple. He states, “Two basics are cleanser and moisturizer. Your cleanser should be gentle enough to use every day, and your moisturizer should ideally include an SPF of 15 or more.” In addition to these two skincare musts, “exfoliate 2-3 times a week, either manually or with an at home AHA product, and add a great anti-oxidant (Marula – The Leakey Collection, of course!) each day. If you feel a need for an eye cream or another specialty product, 1 more item is fine, but applying too many products or exfoliating too often can be counter-productive.” Read more

Marula – The Leakey Collection is on a roll. We’re happy to say our launch in Sephora has been a great success – thanks to you! We’re also so happy to tell you about some recent ORAC testing we did on our oil. For those who aren’t familiar with ORAC testing, the initials stand for “Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity.” The results of the test illustrate a product or ingredient’s ability to absorb and neutralize oxygen radicals – which are some of the more damaging oxidants in found in nature. When free radicals are too abundant in skin they can cause wrinkles, loss of radiance and hyper-pigmentation. The good news? We discovered that Marula Oil has 50% more anti-oxidants than Argan Oil. We were impressed with our results, and think you will be too.

As the sun fades and the winter winds starts, our skin has to adjust to the changing climate. Fortunately, with a little help from the tanning salon and dermatologist, you can keep your skin tip-top shape just in time for the holiday season. We know you work hard in the winter months preparing and planning, so here are a few Marula Beauty tips to add to your skin care treatment this season.
Facial and Chemical Peels are great around this time of year because sun exposure is lower. Excessive sun exposure will damage the new skin and work against what your peel was trying to accomplish. Because of the lower sun exposure in the winter, recovery is quick. Marula oil can be applied daily after the procedure in conjunction with a sunscreen. This locks in the moisture in the skin while the sunscreen protects it from the damage sun can cause. With more moisture, this skin will peel correctly, and moisturize the emerging skin to leave your face soft and glowing. Read more
