Origin of Kenya Baobab Oil
In Africa, Baobab is probably the best known tree. Its thick, grey and fibrous trunk (reaching in some instances, over 30 meters in circumference) and huge, sprawling crown, sometimes without foliage are instantly recognizable. Baobabs are extremely long lived, with some species believed to be as much as 3500 years old. The tree belongs to its own family, Bombacaceae.
The Baobab tree is a digitae (meaning hand-shaped) with leaves and ovoid fruit, with a had woody shell covered in green-yellowish smooth hairs. Baobab fruit contains quite a number of seeds, embedded in a cream-white, powdery pulp. Spicy and healthful, the pulp makes a delicious food or after soaking in milk or water, the result is a refreshing beverage. The tree is found throughout Africa generally at low altitudes and in the drier, hotter areas. In Africa the tree is so common that to many people it symbolizes Africa.
Kenya Baobab oil is extracted by cold-pressing the seeds.
