We also offer a range of unusual carrier oils which are new to the market, such as:

Manketti Oil

Also known as Mongongo oil, this is a ‘new’ oil from Southern Africa. The oil is cold pressed from the nuts, which are often collected from elephant dung as it is much less labour intensive than getting the nut from inside the fruit.

Mongongo oil is very high in polyunsaturated fatty acids and forms a protective and emollient film on the surface of the hair, where it acts as a barrier, preventing moisture from escaping the interior of the hair. These fatty acids also add gloss to hair and improve comb-ability by smoothing the surface of the hair.

Tsubaki Oil

Also known as Japanese Camellia oil, it is an emollient and approximately 82% of its fatty acids are composed of oleic fatty acid (Omega-9).

Omega-9 is a remarkable transdermal carrier, and is very effective in enhancing skin's moisture retention ability. It is quickly absorbed and permeates deep into lower layers of skin, promoting cell growth and giving skin support and flexibility.
