Fun fact! Did you know when you google search Marula Oil, Drunk Elephant Marula Oil is ranked top 3 in the search.
Marula Oil (Sclerocarya birrea) – A luxury oil extracted from the nut inside the marula fruit commonly found in South Africa.
The Marula oil is jam-packed with many great antioxidants that has many anti-aging and moisturizing properties. It is more suitable for mature and dry skin types as the oleic acid ratio is a lot higher than linoleic acid (making it less suitable for oilier skin types). It aids in relieving redness, blotchiness and, reduction in fine lines.
This version of Marula Oil is almost colorless, lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin. It nourishes the skin while delivering the wonderful effects of antioxidants without feeling greasy.
Tip: for the radiant glowy makeup look, this oil is perfect to be used before applying foundation, one or two drops will be sufficient.
The Ordinary 100% Cold-Pressed Virgin Marula Oil
The main difference between The Ordinary and Drunk Elephant’s versions of the Marula oil is the way it is being processed. Drunk Elephant used a patented unheated water extraction process to cold press the Marula Fruit to ensure that its nutrients are being kept intact. This process is very expensive and time-consuming, hence the major price difference.
Verdict – May repurchase, a great luxurious oil when my skin feels dry. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 4/5
