It’s sustainably harvested and processed. The production of Marula Oil begins with rural women collecting fresh, ripe, fallen fruit from beneath marula trees growing in wild stands on our exclusive concessions in East Africa.

The hard outer shells are individually split by hand; each kernel is removed and inspected for freshness, discarding any of poor quality. The oil-rich ivory coloured kernels are pressed through our unique, proprietary cold-pressing system. 

The fruit pulp is used to make jams and juice. The shells are used as a natural fertilizer, and the protein rich seedcake used an an organic, vegetarian food additive. Nothing goes to waste.
