We wanted to exemplify the ancient beauty and amazing benefits of the African Baobab Fruit in our new scrubs.
Westbrook, ME (PRWEB) September 14, 2010
Planet Botanicals introduces nature’s oldest beauty secret from Africa -- Baobab Fruit – in an innovative Baobab Fruit Body Scrub and Baobab Fruit Cleansing Face Polish. Often referred to as the “upside-down tree” because of its appearance, the Baobab (pronounced “bay-oh-bab”) tree’s “superfruit” has extremely high amounts of antioxidants, due to its very high levels of vitamin C (7x that of an orange) and vitamin E.
Planet Botanicals newest line of ECOCERT certified body and face polishes contain this wonderful Baobab Fruit along with walnut shell powder, hibiscus, calendula and chamomile in a cleansing foaming base. Baobab Fruit Body Scrub contains Baobab Fruit Oil and Baobab Shell Powder to create a luxurious dual action cleansing exfoliating experience. The Baobab Fruit Cleansing Face Polish is a combination of Baobab Fruit Oil, Baobab Fruit Powder and Baobab Micro Shell powder combined with rare Ugandan Shea butter that will result in unbelievably beautiful smooth and hydrated skin. These products are 100% natural and certified by ECOCERT -- no chemicals or artificial ingredients!
“The Baobab tree is shrouded in mystery and folklore,” says Michele Gilfoil, president of Planet Botanicals, “Their beautiful upside-down flowers blossom at night and the trees can live for over a thousand years. We wanted to exemplify the ancient beauty and amazing benefits of the African Baobab Fruit in our new scrubs”, she said. The Baobab tree, found throughout the African continent, has long served as a gathering place to tell stories, to rest and to hold informal gatherings. Planet Botanicals features Baobab oil in three of its other products: Organic Rooibos Tea Baobab Body Wash, Ugandan Shea Butter Boabab Body Balm and Shea Boabab Body Oil.
