Product Description

Shea Terra Organics

Marula oil is Namibia’s ancient beauty secret. Growing wild throughout southern Africa, emollient marula oil is collected from the seeds of intoxicatingly sweet marula fruits. These seeds have tough shells which protect the precious oil. To get the oil, each shell is crushed by hand using a heavy rock. Once winnowed away, the seeds are sun dried then pressed in a mill. After it’s scrutinized in a lab, the marula oil is transported by air to Shea Terra in its most desired virgin state. This method preserves the fragile vitamins and phytonutrients of the plant. We have been getting our 100% pure Namibian Marula Extra Virgin Oil straightfrom the women of Namibia since early 2000.

Marula oil is known to be the most oxidant-resistant oil. Skin that doesn’t prefer argan oil often does very well with marula oil. High in oleic acid, this is the perfect oil for dry, mature and aging skin, but is not recommended for acne-prone skin. Our pure Namibian Marula Extra Virgin Oil nourishes aging skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as it helps to improve moisture balance and elasticity. It’s a wonder oil for those living in dry climates. Marula Oil is fast absorbing, light and has a non-greasy texture. Its high concentrations of nutrients, essential fatty acids and powerful antioxidants help protect against environmental aggressors and toxins to reverse photoaging, boost cellular activity, and slow down damage to collagen. This multipurpose oil can also be applied to hair to improve shine.

The Cold Pressed Method Preserves Potency

Please be aware that our 100% pure, cold-pressed extra virgin oils are not the same as infused oils or essential oils. Distillation is commonly used to derive essential oils from most plants: flowers, trees, vegetables and nuts. The distillation process involves high temperatures, as well as steam and water or a combination of both. For example, plants are sealed in a specialized still as water and/or steam is forced inside. The pressure squeezes out the oil, which is then condensed and collected.

Unlike essential oil, which is distilled from the seed, our cold-pressed extra virgin oil is the whole, complete oil cold pressed from the seed. The seeds for our oil are wild harvested by local inhabitants and sent to the mill for pressing before being sent by air to Shea Terra in its most desired virgin state. This method preserves the fragile vitamins and phytonutrients of the plant. Our oil is not pressed by hand until we order it, it’s also not refined or deodorized so it has a unique, natural aroma.

The first step to extracting oil is to ground the seeds or nuts into a paste. The paste is then mixed in an effort to make the oils better coagulate. In the cold pressed method, oil extraction relies solely on the pressure. No heat is added to the paste. This differs from heated oil extraction methods, which involve heating the paste. Adding heat to the paste increase the amount of oil produced, but the heating process degrades the quality of the oil. Oil created through heating sometimes loses its color, as well. Cold pressing usually produces lower yield, but higher quality oil. That’s why we prefer the using the cold pressed method for our oils.

Natural Beauty That EmpowersNatural Beauty That Empowers

Shea Terra is founded by Tammie Umbel, an enterprising super mom, who built the company while homeschooling 14 of her children. Shea Terra grew out of Tammie’s vision to develop natural skin care treatments that would not only heal and beautify those who use them, but also empower and enrich the lives of many impoverished villages and families throughout Africa.

Since early 2000, Shea Terra Organics has been working with cooperatives and conservation groups to source natural, organic ingredients in a sustainable and ethical way that would create economic opportunities and preserve wildlife. We share these indigenous, time-tested healing ingredients through our breadth of product lines, which include facial care, body treatments, hair herbals and maternity & newborn remedies.
