Scelerocarya birrea, also known as Marula, is indigenous to the African continent and is one of Africa's botanical treasures. It is found in parts of southern Africa, West Africa, and Madagascar. Its history dates back to thousands of years, and the archaeological evidence shows its use as a food source as far back as 10,000 years BC. The tree is highly revered and protected by African natives. In many areas, it is regarded as sacred, and in rural areas such as northern Namibia, it acts as the spiritual center of villages. Locals used the tree for everything from food and fodder to making beauty treatments, dyes, insecticides, medicines, and construction materials.
The Marula tree is a part of the same botanical family that consists of Pistachio, Mango, and Cashew. It produces plum-like fruit with the oil extracted from kernels in its stones. Marula kernels are cold-pressed to extract the miracle Marula Oil. African women have traditionally used marula Oil for generations for its skin-smoothing and moisturizing properties. They also used it as a shampoo for dry, damaged, and fragile hair.
Rightly known as ‘The Elixir of Youth’ and ‘The African Beauty Secret’, Marula Oil is gaining popularity in the beauty industry for its potent moisturizing, anti-aging, protective, and repairing properties. It is probably the richest plant source of omega 9 fatty acid, which provides intense nourishment and long-lasting hydration without making the skin greasy. It is particularly beneficial for those with dry, cracked, dehydrated, or mature skin. It is a powerhouse of antioxidants, including sterols, flavonoids, and tannins, which battle the effects of oxidative damage and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. The oil is also known to support the skin’s natural healing process, soothe irritated and itchy skin, heal sunburns, and fade blemishes and scars.
Marula Oil offers excellent benefits for hair as well - it soothes dry and irritated scalp, prevents dandruff, tames frizzy hair and flyaways, makes hair lustrous, prevents split-ends, and protects against damage from UV radiation, heat, and hair styling products. Marula Oil also provides all-round nourishment to the cuticles, nail bed, and the skin surrounding the nails, thereby preventing brittle nails and cracked skin.

Our Marula Oil is 100% pure, natural, organic, cold-pressed, and virgin, with no further refining or processing to ensure that all the nutrients remain intact. Our Marula Oil is light orangish-yellow in color and has a mild characteristic aroma.
Aroma Tierra Marula Oil is ‘Certified Organic’ by ECOCERT, a globally reputed certification body from France, that has a stringent evaluation process. Our production standards guarantee that everything from the beginning to the end is organically made and that the oil is free from chemicals, preservatives, solvents, and hexane.
Our careful cold-pressed extraction method ensures that the delicate nutrients of Marula kernels are not destroyed by heat. Further, we do not deodorize, decolorize, or refine our Marula Oil. Refining the oil elongates its shelf life, but comes at a cost of destroying some of its natural nutrients. Therefore, we emphasize on using the cold-pressed, non-deodorized, and virgin quality to gain the maximum benefits.
Furthermore, we use specially designed violet-glass bottles to preserve the oil's potency and elongate its shelf life.
Today, using the term 'organic' is unregulated in most markets and is often misleading. Products labeled as 'organic' offer no guarantee that they are free from synthetic chemicals or pesticides unless certified by a credible independent body.
