How we make our baobab oil
Baobab oil is made from baobab seeds. The seeds are found in large capsule-like fruit which grow on baobab trees. Baobab fruit grow on trees throughout the savannas of Africa. The fruit mature during the dry season and drop off the trees when ready to harvest. People living in rural area collect the fruit from under the trees. The fruit are transported to our processing facility. Here the fruit are cracked open and the inside powder and seed is removed.
The seeds are extracted from baobab fruit by cracking the hard outer capsule. The extracted seeds are then washed to remove a powder coating and then air dried in the hot sun. These seeds can be stored for many months before pressing. Baobab oil is made by a cold pressing process. A press, or expeller, ‘squeezes’ the oil from the baobab seed. The newly pressed oil is immediately filtered to help clarify the oil which is then bottled. EcoProducts baobab oil has not undergone any further refinement or processing and has no additives. We are proud to say that our oil is 100% pure.
