Our journey with Marula began in Africa, where world renowned anthropologists noticed the local women using oil derived from the Marula tree to renew and heal the skin. Fascinated by this ancient tradition dating back over 10,000 years, they brought this “miracle oil” to the US and enlisted acclaimed plastic surgeon Dr. Ashton Kaidi to study its benefits. Dr. Kaidi’s research revealed the powerful and potent anti-oxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory qualities of this precious oil. Recognizing the benefits for his patients, Dr. Kaidi co-founded Marula Beauty in 2012.
Our proprietary harvest-to-bottle process combines modern technology with ancient beauty rituals that have been passed down through generations. Every product in our line contains the highest quality marula oil, which is wild harvested, hand selected, and cold pressed with no added chemicals, thus maintaining the purest natural potency of the Marula fruit.
Recognizing the importance of the Marula tree to the communities in Africa, we at Marula Beauty are passionate about empowering the local women sustainably farming the oil and providing fair trade wages. This directly contributes to the quality of lives of their families, while bringing superior potent anti-oxidant marula oil products to women around the world. Marula, authentically good for real change.
