My skin needs all the moisture it can get.

Lucille entered a competition and received a bottle of baobab oil as a prize. Here's her feedback: "Am loving my Baobab oil and have been using it at night as a moisturizer. I have been having problems with a small patch of dry skin on my cheek and that seems to be gone! The baobab oil soaks into my skin and does not leave me feeling oily. As I am a senior citizen my skin needs all the moisture it can get and I think the Baobab oil fills this need perfectly!"  Lucille, Port Alfred, September 2016.    Lucille, Port Alfred

Faithful-To-Nature’s 5-star Ratings on Baobab Oil!


My friends have noticed a huge difference in my skin!

'I have a particularly dry skin and in the past have used several imported skincare products to try and ward off the inevitable signs of ageing, with average success.  About 6 months ago I started using Eco Products’ Baobab Oil every morning, under a very average type of day cream.  I can see a huge difference in my skin and several friends have commented on how much more youthful / less dry my skin is looking.  I’m delighted with the results and will definitely continue to use it as part of my daily regime.'  Barbara, January 2016

Baobab oil makes an amazing difference to my skin!

Lovely testimonial from a happy customer:
'Dear Sarah, I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with the Baobab oil. I have been using it myself for the first time and the difference in my old skin is amazing. Scars and wrinkles are disappearing and healing on my skin is so quick, whereas it used to take months. Friends are looking at my skin and wanting to buy it for themselves now, so word is getting out!' Laura, Pretoria, January 2016

Dry Winter Skin – how baobab oil can help

When your skin becomes dry, the structure of your skin changes and becomes more vulnerable. Dermatologists call this vulnerability of dry skin an impaired barrier function.  This means water escapes more easily, dehydrating your skin, and soaps and solvents are better able to penetrate your skin and remove your natural skin oils. Harsh winter weather with its cold and dry atmosphere also contributes by “pulling” water out of your skin.  Your skin gets drier and drier and its barrier gets weaker and weaker. This is where Baobab oil, a 100% pure and natural plant based oil that is cold pressed to retain all its healing qualities, can be so helpful in relieving dry skin conditions. “I bought a bottle of EcoProducts Baobab oil which I have been using  for about 10 days now.   It is great stuff!  I am mixing it with my  normal hand lotion which I use on my hands and face and it makes  a real difference.   I have tried a number of essential oils before but none of them have been quite so effective.  I am going to recommend it to everyone I think would be interested.”  Sally, Johannesburg, June 2015 Sally, Johannesburg

Nothing to show the dermatologist!

I am a tomato farmer in the Musina area.  As I spend a lot of time in the sun, I have developed skin cancer spots on my arms.  I realized that I needed to see a dermatologist about them urgently, but I could not get an appointment for a few months at the dermatologist recommended to me in the Cape.  I made the appointment anyway and decided that in the interim I would use some of my wife’s baobab oil on the spots.  To my surprise they started fading and have almost faded away.  Now I have nothing to show the dermatologist!

Baobab oil for dry, itchy, flaky eczema

Oh the misery of itchy, irritated, inflamed skin!  A Baobab oil user tells us "I have suffered with Eczema since I was a baby. It often goes away and then reappears almost over night. I have "dry & wet Eczema" Dry being dry, flakey, white patches of skin that get itchy when the skin is irritated. The wet eczema I would get mostly on my hands. After scratching it viciously (because it is almost impossible not to scratch it) it would weep, causing the skin to be inflamed, very pink and sometimes even swell.

My skin has been assessed multiple times by different doctors. All doctors prescribing me almost the same treatment. I have just about tried everything on the market

My mother got the Baobab oil for me because she said she read up about it and wrote in about my skin condition. Whenever my skin is dry, itchy or a little flakey I apply the oil. I sometimes apply it up to 5 times a day. My last application is before bed so it soaks in through the night. The Baobab oil has definitely helped to reduce the redness and smooth out the dry skin. I have also given some to my sister to use on her face, for her very dry skin and we have both seen  an improvement!"  Bianca Chael Ruegg, Cape Town

Help for Hair!

"Baobab oil is a fantastic product, I’m very satisfied with it! I have frizzy hair. I use it as a leave-in conditioner, and afterwards my hair is silky smooth and soft! I only use one tiny drop. Its the best product that I have ever used on my hair". says Elaine, Faithful-to-Nature customer.

Baobab oil is well known as an active ingredient in a variety of hair treatments as it’s an excellent solution for dry, brittle, frizzy or dull hair.   It acts as a superior and deeply nourishing emollient that hydrates and rehabilitates dry and damaged strands.

Baobab oil is a great way to nourish your hair and a perfect way to deliver the nutrients it needs. The omega fatty acids improve elasticity and restore strength and shine. Baobab oil can also relieve an itchy scalp: botanical oils gets absorbed easily into the scalp soothing irritation and dryness. 

Add a few drops to your usual hair conditioner to give a boost to its effectiveness.  Alternatively, distribute a spritz of baobab oil onto towel-dry hair, comb it through and style as normal.  Your hair will feel soft, silky-smooth and hydrated without being heavy or feeling weighed down.  And if you need a little more persuasion, here's a great blog by The Beauty Professor on why she uses a baobab oil serum on her hair.


How baobab oil removed my unsightly pigmentation: a stunning testimonial!

Baobab oil BEFORE and AFTER pic-pigmentation

Wilma Meyer's Story: Cape Town

“At the end of November 2001, I underwent radiation treatment for a rare eye condition. Approximately 2 years later, I noticed dark patches of pigmentation forming. They were on my temples, cheekbones and most noticeably on my forehead. Everyone thought that it was just hormonal. Deep down, I knew that it was more than this . After visiting various GPs, pharmacies and beauty counters I visited a well-known dermatologist who gave the following diagnosis: the scarring was due to the radiation treatment that I had received but that not much could be done because the damage was quite deep.

Her prescribed medication consisted of creams – lots of them (cortisone based). For cleansing, it was Epizone E cream. Various other preparations were prescribed from time to time. This went on for another 2 years with no improvement.  At one stage, the dermatologist even suggested just using makeup powder to ‘hide’ the scars.  By this time I had accepted that this would be my look and embraced it as just how it would be.  At times I even forgot that they were there until a stranger would come up to me and suggest products for my face. I would try the product but if I didn’t see results, I wouldn’t buy it again.  I spent a LOT of money over time on various skin products – none of which helped significantly.

In July 2012,  my work brought me into contact with Baobab oil and I decided to try it. I bought my 1st 5ml and virtually used a drop each morning mixed with my sunblock. This was my daily routine which I continued for a while. Early in 2013, I purchased a 30ml bottle and started using the oil more frequently – now adding an evening treatment of just plain baobab oil.  I also started mixing it with my moisturizer. It was round about April 2013 that I noticed that my scars on my forehead and temples had just disappeared. I can’t say when that happened because in my mind they were still there. The scarring on my cheeks is considerably lighter as well.

I now scrutinize my face each time I look in the mirror in amazement because it is absolutely unbelievable how Baobab oil has transformed my skin!  I am so excited about Baobab oil and find myself telling everyone I know – and who know my story – about what it has done for me.

Baobab oil is a great find and is now something that I cannot do without!” 

Wilma, Cape Town

Unsightly scars reduced with Baobab oil

Baobab oil helps with scarring

Leigh was in a car accident some years ago (2008) and had to have surgery to her arm afterwards.  She scars very easily and was very worried about the unsightly scars that the cut and staples might leave.  She decided to only use baobab oil on her wound and this is what it looks like now (2013).  She says very few people even notice the cut.  What a great result, hey!

Share this with a friend you know who may have scarring that they would like to reduce!

Baobab oil helps with scarring

Mohamed before and after Strolling through a shopping mall in Centurion,  Mohamed’s ankle got caught by a woman’s shopping trolley.  He fell forward and hit his forehead against a ceramic tile.  The skin split open and he had to be rushed to get stitches.  ‘I got more stitches than I could count’, said Mohamed afterwards.   Once the wound had settled after a few weeks, his doctor gave him a bottle of EcoProducts baobab oil to help heal the scar.  He applied the oil every day to the scar and two months later – look how wonderfully it has healed!

Baobab oil for the whole family!

Family skin care

A letter from a happy customer:   "Hi Sarah, baobab oil is helping my entire family. I  love that we can all use it! My hubby had a large patch of dead skin cells on his leg caused by a reaction to a bite and absolutely nothing was helping him. Since using the baobab oil, there has been a significant improvement. His skin is a lot lighter and you can see that its encouraging new skin cells to form.  I also have used it on my baby boy. He had a small dry skin patch on his face and I was nervous to put anything on it,  but since I know baobab is all natural, it gave me the confidence to use it on him and know that it is safe..The patch is now gone.   The eczema on my hands is a lot better too… not as flaky and raw.   The oil really hydrates the skin.. it really is an amazing product!!  Thanks so much, Claire xx  ps: love that its a spray, makes it so easy to apply and use." Claire, Amanzimtoti

Baobab oil helps bone transplant wound recovery

Ida, who lives in the Karoo tells us a wonderful story of how baobab oil has helped her bone transplant wound recover, recently. She was thrilled with the way her skin responded and can't wait for the plaster on her foot to be removed so she can use it on the 3 long scars left by the operation.  In the meantime, she's also been using the oil on her small children's mosquito bites.

Here is her full story in Afrikaans:   "Ek het 'n voetoperasie gehad. Ek is nog in gips.  Mag vir 3 maande nie op my voet trap nie, Die sny onder my knie vir die beenoorplanting is noual sonder pleister.  Ek het 'n hele ruk gelede vir my 'n botteltjie Baobab olie gekoop omdat dit vir my interressant gelyk het.  Ek woon op ;n plaas en het besluit om van die olie aan die sny(met oplosbare steke in) te smeer. Dis ongelooflik hoe pragtig my vel reageer. Ek kan nie wag dat my gips moet afkom sodat ek aan my voet se 3 LANG snye kan smeer nie.  Julie maand word my ander voet gedoen. Ek stel belang om nog olie aan te koop myne is op van muskietbyte van my kleinkinders te dokter. Karoo Groete, Ida"

Dry itchy skin disappeared after using baobab oil

Baobab oil is absolutely fantastic.  My hubby used it on his skin and he hasn't complained about dry itchy skin again.  I've been using it on my face and it's a brilliant moisturizer, no oiliness and it draws into my skin quickly.  I'm left with soft, hydrated skin. I am definitely going to purchase a bottle or two!!! Thank you


No more dry flaky skin

The oil has definitely helped and I no longer have dry flaky skin after using it, which in turn results in no itchiness - YAY!  My skin is softer and smoother, but I do need to use the oil after each shower otherwise the flakiness reappears.  I like ht feel of the oil but I find that it isn't completely absorbed by my skin despite  lengthy massaging.  I will definitely continue using the oil buy it think I might try adding it to some aqueous cream. 

Denise, South Africa

Baobab oil soothing oil for skin

The oil is great and very soothing on my skin.  It has helped quite a lot and I am enjoying its use.  I am not so crazy about the smell, however I suppose that's how the baobab tree oil smells, very nutty and medicinal.  Perhaps it can be mixed with lavendar oil or my other favorite rose or geranium...

Rene, South Africa

I moisturise my arms and face using baobab oil

Your baobab oil is very good.  I use it at night on my arms and face.

Irma, Cordoba

I use baobab oil when I cycle as a natural chamois cream

I use baobab oil as an alternative to chamois cream when I cycle.  The advantage of  EcoProducts baobab oil is that it is light but still protects you without all the greasiness you find with many chamois creams. 

Phil, Stellenbosch

Baobab oil healed scar on my head

I am bald and my doctor discovered a cancerous growth on my head.  He fortunately removed it in time, but I was worried that the cut would leave an unsightly scar.  I used baobab oil from the moment the cut healed and now one can hardly see the cut at all.   I am very impressed with baobab oil.

Baobab is a natural chamois cream!

As an active cyclist I often use chamois cream. Due to bad planning I ran out of it and was looking for a substitute. I discovered baobab oil and it is working very well and has now totally replaced my expensive chamois cream.

Harsh African sun damaged my skin

My arms and hands have been exposed to the harsh African sun for many years and as a result my skin is dry and full of sunspots.  I have recently discovered your fantastic baobab oil and have been rubbing the oil onto my hands and arms every day.  The first time I used it, my skin felt instantly better and now I use it every day and I can feel my skin getting better.

Detergents leach the oil from my hands, baobab oil helped

I work with soap and water most of the day while doing laundry and dishes.  These detergents leach the oil from my skin, making them feel tight and hard.  I was given a bottle of EcoProducts Baobab oil by my employer to rub into my hands in the morning and evening and this made a huge difference to my skin. It keeps my hands smooth and nourished.

Noria, Nzelele

Potter loves baobab oil to moisturise hands

Working with clay really dries my hands out and for years I have tried all sorts of products to moisturize my hands after working in the studio all day.  A friend suggested I use EcoProducts Baobab oil, this has been the best advice she has ever given me!  The oil has been the best product by far.  Now I keep a large bottle of EcoProducts Baobab Oil in my studio and use it all the time.

Emmy, Pretoria

My hands feel tight and dry after gardening

I love gardening, it releases stress and makes me focus on the ‘real’ things in life.  I particularly like working with the soil, however the soil dries my skin out, so I need to moisturize my hands after working in the garden.  I have started using EcoProducts baobab oil which absorbs straight into my skin and immediately takes the tight and dry feeling away.  It does not make my hands sticky, which lotions or creams tend to do.

Stretch marks on thighs fade away using baobab oil

I got very bad stretch marks on thighs and my stomach when I was pregnant. I tried a number of products to remove them and nothing seemed to help.  A few years later the marks were still there.  Then I tried EcoProducts baobab oil.  I rubbed the oil onto my stretch marks every day for a few weeks and the marks faded away. Lynette, Buysdorp Lynette, Buysdorp

Baobab oil, perfect moisturiser for sensitive skin

I am in my 60ies and I have spent many hours of my life in the sun.  I am sensitive to many ingredients used in creams, so when I discovered your baobab oil I started using it on my face every day.  It has been wonderful, I hardly have any wrinkles left and my skin feels fantastic.

Cathelijne, Blougumspoort

My beautician cannot believe the difference

A few years ago, I started using EcoProducts Baobab Oil on my face as a natural moisturiser for my face instead of conventional face creams. I quickly found that it visibly reduced fine wrinkles.  When I visited my beautician a month after starting with baobab oil, she could not believe the difference in my skin and wanted to know what I was using. I now recommend EcoProducts baobab oil to all my friends and I continue use it every day.


The best moisturiser ever!

I love your oil! I use a drop for each of my lower arms, back of my hands and on my face and neck. Only once a day is enough. It is the only moisturizer I have ever had that is "net mooi reg"!

Dinki, Vleesbaai

Baobab oil improves condition of aged skin

I have thin aged skin on my arms. I started rubbing baobab oil on my arms every day and it has made a remarkable difference.  My skin has become much softer and more flexible and the sun spots on my arms are fading away.

Kori, Levubu

My cat and I are much happier

I own a cat who loves to claw my arms and because I have thin, aged skin I was always full of bleeding scratches.  My granddaughter gave me some EcoProducts baobab oil to rub onto my skin and within days the scratches started healing up and my skin got stronger.  The cats claws do not seem to penetrate my skin so easily now and both the cat and I are much happier.

Pam, Freshwoods

Baobab oil removes sun spots

For years I have been going to my doctor to remove sun spots from my skin and they keep popping up all over the place, particularly on my arms and face.  A friend suggested I rub EcoProducts baobab oil onto them and see what happens.  To my amazement the sunspots started fading and going away.  I have been treating all my sunspots like this ever since.  I only visit my doctor once a year for checkups and we have not had to remove any more. Jan, Makhado Jan, Makhado

Baobab oil reduces unsightly scars

My skin scars very easily.  I still have unsightly scars from my childhood inoculations and previous operations.  Recently I have had to have more surgery and this time I used baobab oil to help prevent visible scarring. I am very happy with the results, the baobab oil worked well.   I now readily recommend using baobab oil to reduce visible scarring to all my friends, many of who have also been impressed with results.

Improve condition of aged skin

I am in my 70ies, the skin on my arms is thin and has dry crusty spots.  These are itchy and my skin tears easily.  I started rubbing some baobab oil on my arms every morning and found that not only did it take all the dry spots away it also stopped my skin tearing.  I am a devoted user of your oil and recommend it to all my friends.

Peter, Louis Trichardt

Best moisturiser for menopause skin

I am going through menopause and do not want to use HRT.  I find that face moisturizers tend to get sticky and sweat out when I have hot flushes, so I started using baobab oil on my face and found that it absorbs well and does not sweat out.

Grieta, Lejuma

Skin cancer spot disappears

I was diagnosed with skin cancer behind my right ear.  I tried your oil on the affected area and it has cleared up completely. 

I would like to say that the baobab oil does more that I ever expected.

Ronnie, Makhado

Improved condition of burned skin

I have been using your baobab oil for some time.  I thought  you may like some feedback on the results. In 1966 I was badly burned.  The skin on my right arm and hand has been delicate since then.  After using your oil I have found a vast improvement in the condition of my skin.  Ronnie, Makhado Ronnie, Makhado

Visibly reduced the wrinkles on face

I am ‘forty something’ and I had some unsightly wrinkles and stretch marks on my face.  I started using Baobab oil, your product, since the beginning of this year.  I am pleased to let you know that it has proved to be the perfect product for me.  It has visibly reduced the wrinkles on my face and the stretch marks on my body.  It also moisturizes my skin and I feel great.  It has taken 10 years off my age!! 

I recommend Baobab oil to anybody experiencing the same problems as I had.  The results are just amazing.  Thank you for an effective product.

Molly, Masvingo

Baobab oil helps aged and sun damaged skin

I am a farmer in the UK and as such my arms and face are exposed to the sun and elements for a good part of the year.  For many years now I have suffered badly from dry scaly skin and sun spots on them, which have steadily got worse. 

While on holiday in South Africa I was recommended to buy a bottle of your baobab oil for my skin.  I am writing to tell you how pleased I am with the results.  My skin is practically back to what it was 20 years ago and now I only need to apply the oil twice a week to my arms and face. I also add a couple of drops to the bath water every night.

I got a friend to bring back a big bottle from South Africa this year, which will last me for years as I find I only need to apply it very sparingly.

How baobab oil helped with pre-cancer spots on my face

Hello! I want to tell you all about the very bad pre-cancer marks (sunspots) I had on my face. My dermatologist told me to go for a facial peel, but I was too scared to do this. I heard that baobab oil helps remove skin cancer spots and I rubbed the oil onto my face every few days for one month and it took nearly all the spots away!

Susan, Johannesburg

Rescue remedy for skin

Baobab oil is the most wonderful rescue remedy for skin. My son, Finn, age 6, thinks it is magic oil from the baobab tree. Baobab oil takes the soreness out of sunburn and mozzie bites and helps with bumps and bruises. For silky soft skin, I add it to the bath and rub it on dry hands and feet. We use it for everything!

Kathy, Leshiba

Pimples on face cleared up

I am a black woman with problem, pimply skin which I have been suffering with for years.  A friend gave me a bottle of baobab oil to try on my face and within days it cleared my face up.  I could not believe what a difference it made.

Vhulaheni, Thohoyandou (Limpopo)

I suffer from deep eczema and baobab oil helped clear it away.

I have suffered with deep eczema in my hands for many years with extreme discomfort while driving expedition vehicles across Africa.  After trying almost every medication available on the market, my doctor gave me a bottle of EcoProducts baobab oil.  After a few weeks of rubbing the oil into my hands the eczema started going away.  Now it has become manageable and at times goes away completely. I always keep a bottle of EcoProducts baobab oil in my car with me on these long expeditions and as soon as my hands get dry I rub the oil in.  The oil is unusual because it absorbs well into the skin, so my hands never feel greasy, which so many of the other products tend to do.

Dawid (African expeditions organizer and guide), Makhado, Limpopo

I have dry skin on my face and baobab oil helped take it away.

The skin on my cheeks and nose were permanently dry and flaky.  For years I have tried different creams and oils, but none were effective and many just gave me pimples.  I was given a bottle of EcoProducts Baobab Oil which I applied to my face every.  Within a month my skin condition had completely disappeared.  My friends all commented on how much my complexion had improved. It is now the only moisturizer I use on my face, I don’t need anything else.
