Skin properties of Baobab oil
Baobab seed oil is a rich source of fatty acids: oleic acid (30-40%), linoleic acid (24-34%), and palmitic acid (18-30%). It has great nourishing properties and the ability to improve skin elasticity while being quickly absorbed.

It contains vitamins A, C, D, E, and K, flavonoids, amino acids, and minerals, all of which are highly beneficial for our skin. Baobab oil has anti-inflammatory properties, making it an optimal ingredient for caring and comforting sensitive skin that is prone to irritation and itching. It is also believed to have benefits for hair care, providing shine and hydration to the hair and repairing split ends.

What type of water is used in cosmetics?

In cosmetics, "purified" water is used, which is chemically pure and undergoes filtration or processing to remove all types of impurities, including minerals, chemicals, bacteria, fungi, etc. It is deionized water, completely stripped of ions, and not distilled.

What is the purpose of water in cosmetics?

Water is used as the main solvent in cosmetics due to its properties and affinity with the skin. However, when a cosmetic product is exposed to air after its initial use, certain microorganisms, mainly bacteria, can proliferate in the water and alter the shelf life of the product. This is why the use of preservatives is necessary to maintain the properties of the product intact from its opening and throughout the indicated time period, as indicated by the Period After Opening (PAO) symbol on the label.
