Inspired by the abundant riches that come from the baobab, EcoProducts has created BaoCare™, a100% pure and natural skin healing range using the rare baobab oil as its foundational hero ingredient. Baobab oil is a rich amber-gold oil cold-pressed from the small brown seeds found within the fruit pod of the baobab tree.
Baobab oil has a unique fatty acid profile with exceptional quantities of Omega 6 and 9. These essential fatty acids are known to maintain elasticity, soften and smooth the skin and naturally regenerate new skin cells. Baobab oil has been clinically proven to deeply moisturise and hydrate the skin as well as reduce trans-epidermal water loss.
Which is why BaoCare™Tissue Oil is excellent for very dry skin, scarring & stretch marks.
BaoCare™Tissue Oil combines organic wild harvested Baobab oil with natural Vitamin E and a subtle unisex fragrance. This expertly blended skin solution also contains essential oils known for their beneficial aromatherapy properties.
A Culture of Collaboration
BaoCare™ has partnered with Tsonga Textiles, based in the Northern Limpopo, who have printed and designed a unique buff using traditional methods of flatbed and panel screen printing. The buffs are hand-made by local people as a special gift to complement BaoCare™Tissue Oil The buffs are also available for purchase for R143 at https://www.baocare.co.za/shop/
The BaoCare™ Promise
BaoCare™Tissue Oil is free from synthetic chemical ingredients, parabens and mineral oils. It’s a skin care solution that has been meticulously formulated with ingredients best known to be helpful in replenishing very dry skin and reducing the appearance of stretchmarks and scarring.
There are 4 other skin healing products in the range: 100% Pure Baobab Oil, Radiance, Eczema Skin Care and Acne Skin Care. Although the whole range is available now, each product will be launched separately over the next months.
A Culture of Caring
EcoProducts believes it’s impossible to separate what we create from how and where we create it. That’s why BaoCare™ is as much about the natural skin care solutions they’ve created as the people who help to produce their range and the environment from which they source their raw materials.
The certified organic baobab oil is wild-harvested in the Limpopo, the heart of baobab country by EcoProducts, South Africa’s first and only baobab producer. EcoProducts employs mostly women from Venda communities in the area. EcoProducts also runs the Baobab Foundation, which sources funding to support pre-school creches and the Baobab Guardians Program, a baobab tree planting initiative.
Wisdom of the Baobab Tree
A Culture of Caring is one of the key premises upon which BaoCare™ has been built, based on the inherent wisdom of the baobab tree itself. The legendary baobab tree can survive harsh, near desert conditions through its ability to conserve water. Unlike most trees, it can regenerate its own damaged bark, much like human skin. The baobab tree gives shelter to numerous species of insects, birds and animals and is regarded by traditional cultures as both a wise presence and a gathering place for community building. Its fruit and leaves are exceptionally nourishing and it’s reputed to live for thousands of years.
There’s a natural resonance in a tree celebrated for its longevity, providing oil which keeps our skin supple, healthy and ageless. And just as the baobab is able to thrive in hostile desert conditions, so baobab oil helps us to weather harsh environmental elements which dry out and damage our skin. BaoCare™ taps into the profound wisdom of sourcing our healing solutions from the same environment in which we live: Africa.
