Read on to find out why your skin will thank you for using this wonder product…
- Vitamin C
The Baobab fruit is said to contain 7 times as much Vitamin C strength than other citrus fruits. Vitamin C is essential for the skin – it promotes radiance and can help reduce the appearance of dark spots.

Baobab is filled with many B vitamins including Biotin, which helps to enhance your natural complexion and creates a healthy skin surface.
Fun fact… when your body is experiencing a vitamin B deficiency, you are more likely to get unwanted blemishes, dry skin and rashes.
