The Baobab tree is fondly called the “Tree of Life”. The kernels contained within the Baobab fruit pod yield a rich, golden scented oil traditionally used by African women to protect their beautiful skin against the harsh African savannah environment. The oil has strong natural moisturizing properties and is commonly used to both prevent and cure dry skin conditions of the face and body. Baobab oil contains omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids that contribute towards the maintenance of healthy skin.

8. Bath Soak – 200ml
MatsiMela uses natural Kalahari Bath Salt.
Our salt comes from an area in the Kalahari which was never inhabited or used for industrial purposes. Here a crystal clear underwater stream runs through a rock formation that originates from the Dwyka strata era and is around 280 million years old. This rock formation stores salt crystals that are washed out by this water and the salt brine runs into an underground salt lake. From there it gets forwarded to the surface where it is sun dried and packaged. Our salt remains pure, natural and totally untreated. It still contains all the minerals that are so essential for our bodies’ health and our well-being.
During our research we have found that salt has an extremely cleansing and healing effect unlike a normal bath which extracts moisture from the skin. A bath with natural crystal salt allows the salt to be stored in the upper callous layer of the skin where it forms a protective barrier. The protective natural film of the skin remains and the skin does not dry out.
By adding only a handful of our Baobab fragranced Bath Salt to your bath, you will enjoy the healing, cleansing and relaxing effect. The minerals of the salt are absorbed through the skin, while through osmosis the body toxins are released into the water. Enjoy for at least ten minutes.
9. Tissue oil– 125ml
Our tissue oil is excellent for repairing & maintaining dry damaged & scarred skin. It contains a natural VIT E oil (non-synthetic) which aids in better absorption. It contains 10 % baobab oil & this oil is of course renowned for its excellent moisturising properties. It also contains wheat germ oil which in itself is naturally high in VIT E – these oils moisturise the skin & keep the skin soft & beautiful.
The product in non greasy & lightly fragranced & leaves the skin smooth & silky.
