Cosmetics-Related Baobab Products

One of the newest uses for baobab is for use in some of the best natural organic cosmetics on the market today. Some of the main uses for baobab as a cosmetic are for facial creams and for masks, shampoos, conditioners, lotions and even as an exfoliating product. Certified organic cosmetics are created from this antioxidant superfruit which contains a huge amount of vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and PP, plus a multitude of minerals such as calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium and zinc.

Perhaps one of the most important byproducts of these organic cosmetics made of baobab is the sustainability of the effort used to harvest and eventually distribute them. The Baobab Fruit Company Senegal prides itself on the support that is given back to the local villages from each part of the production process.
