Roiel’s Marula Oil is luxurious and deeply penetrating. This neutral oil contains antioxidant properties which address the hydration needs of everyone regardless of their age or skin concerns.
Roiel Cosmetics was born from the collaborative vision of artist and designer Edva Sims and celebrity skincare and makeup artist J’ai Lone. Raised in South Africa, Edva knew about the wonders of Marula Oil and together with Jai’s experience and knowledge of quality skincare products they have united their talents to create Roiel Cosmetics. Roiel Cosmetics has been meticulous in their search for the perfect Marula Oil, creating a loyal and trusting clientele of celebrities, Hollywood elite and discerning clients. We are the biggest fans of these beautiful women and their life-changing oil.
Roiel Cosmetics' mission is to be responsibly sustainable and source wild harvested, organic ingredients originating in Southern Africa. They care deeply about the environment and the damage being done to our bodies and planet by chemicals used in today's skincare products and use minimal, biodegradable packaging whenever possible.
The history of the Marula tree goes back thousands of years and across many generations. The Marula tree is one of the great trees indigenous to Sub - Saharan Africa. It is a medium to large deciduous tree belonging to the same family as the mango, cashew and pistachio nuts. The plum sized super-fruit has an exotic flavor and scent and contains a large hard seed, surrounding two or more edible kernels, rich in oil. It is the oil from the Marula kernel that has come to give the Marula tree its healing status. Women in rural areas crack the fruit by hand to extract the precious kernel and place them into a hand pressing machine, where the magic of Marula is born.
The oil has a clear, pale golden color with a delicate fresh aroma. Marula oil has been used by African women for centuries-- traditionally they massaged it into their hair, skin and nails for extraordinary moisture and protection. The wonderful thing about this oils is that its safe for everyone to use and highly recommended for pregnant women to keep their skin balanced throughout their pregnancy and also to prevent stretch marks. The vitamin C and E it contains help with collagen production and reduces hyperpigmentation.
We love that the oil is not greasy and sinks into the skin within seconds. Since the oil is so versatile and mild, you can use it in combination with other products as well. Add a few drops to your moisturizer for silky, dewy skin, or use on its own any time of the day! You are going to want this oil with you at all times.
