Mongongo oil is obtained by cold-pressing the nuts that come from the Mongongo or Manketti tree (Schinziophyton rautanenii). The Manketti tree is found from coast to coast in Southern Africa. It thrives in the seasonal dry lands where it weathers a broad range of temperatures from sub-freezing to scorching desert heat.

The kernel of the Mongongo fruit is yellow oil, rich in proteins. The oil is cold pressed from the fruits.

The yellow oil pressed from the seeds of the mongongo tree contains high levels of vitamin E (tocopherol), linoleic and eleostearic acids, making it a very useful oil for skin protection. It is effective not only for hydrating the skin but also for helping in restructuring and regenerating the epidermis. The eleostearic acid reacts rapidly with UV light, producing polymerisation and providing a protective layer. The oil is has excellent stability and is proven in the heat of Southern Africa.

High Vitamin E (tocopherol) High linoleic acid High eleostearic acid Excellent stability

Use Manketti Oil in cream, lotion, sun care product, lip balm, hair conditioning and body butter formulations at 5-10%.
