Amazing results healing a bad burn with Baobab oil!It's so unusual to get a testimonial about healing with baobab oil (in this case a burn wound) with actual progressive photographs! So thank you so much Catherine Thompson for sending these in. We apologise if these pics are a bit graphic, but in the interests of seeing the fantastic results of using baobab oil on her wound, we thought the discomfort was worth it! Here's Catherine's story.
What Happened:"I burnt myself badly on my arm on the 3rd of January - it was dreadful and I probably should have gone for burn treatment. The skin melted off. YUK. After a week of burn-shield and once the scab had come off the only thing that I could tolerate on the area was your baobab oil. I put it on 4 or 5 times a day and still do. I am so impressed with the scarring as it seems to get smaller each week." Catherine Thompson, Kyalami Catherine Thompson, Kyalami
Baobab oil for scarring‘I used the oil on a scar on my knee and within the first two days I could feel the texture changing. I will continue to use this and I have no doubt that eventually the scarring will fade and the texture of my skin will improve. Not only is it non-greasy but easy to use and spray on.’ Natasha Naidoo, Cape Town Natasha Naidoo, Cape Town
Baobab oil for AcneI have had problematic skin my whole life and have tried multiple treatments, none of which had any lasting or satisfactory results. I began using baobab oil on my skin and within the week I had begun to notice a difference. Not only did I notice fewer and fewer pimples but my skin tone has evened out and has a much healthier look all round. I would recommend people try it. It's worked amazingly on my skin. Erin, Louis Trichardt Erin, Louis Trichardt
I love my baobab oil!I love my baobab oil! I pour a few drops in my bath every night and I use it on my face before I go to bed. My skin feels so good! No more itching dry skin. I would recommend it to anyone with a dry skin as it really works well! Thank you. Anne, Odendalsrust, 2016 Anne, Odendalsrust

Big Improvement in my SkinI have been using pure Baobab oil after cleansing my face at night. I then use it in the mornings mixed with my usual daily moisturiser. I have noticed a big improvement in my skin! I suffer from eczema and constantly have itchy and dry spots. My skin has a more even tone, is really soft and is now not as red. The oil draws into my skin beautifully. Overall really happy. I am glad I discovered your product :-) Michelle, Sandton, 2016 Michelle, Sandton, Gauteng
I Love the Richness on my Skin!Tarryn received Baobab oil as a prize and wrote to us saying: "I LOVE EcoProduct's Baobab oil. I am using it at night on its own as a moisturiser.

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 2016Barbara, Cape Town
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 2016Laura, Pretoria
Dry Winter Skin – how baobab oil can helpWhen 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!Mike, Musina
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 TownBianca Chanel 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, a 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.,

Unsightly scars reduced with Baobab oilLeigh, Limpopo
Baobab oil helps with scarringStrolling 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! Mohamed, Centurion Mohamed, Centurion
Baobab oil for the whole family!
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, AmanzimtotiClaire, Amanzimtoti

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 youTracey,
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

Baobab oil healed scar on my head

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

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.Nelia, Stellenbosch

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!

Baobab oil removes sun spotsFor 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

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.

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.Irving, United Kingdom
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.Sikha, Zimbabwe
