We started this family business when we identified the gap in the market and the need for supply of this amazing product. We wanted to ensure that no one misses out on this remarkable product.
For more than a century the marula fruit has traditionally been harvested by local ommunities living in the north-central parts of Namibia, where the marula tree is an abundant natural resource. Although the fruit looks more like a food source than a high-value ingredient for overseas cosmetic products, the marula’s real secret is locked away inside it.
The key to opening this secret is rooted deep within African tradition. For generations, women in the Oshana, Ohangwena, Omusati and Oshikoto regions of north-central Namibia have been using marulas as a way to provide for their families.
Pure Delight indirectly employs over a thousand rural woman that uses their unique skills handed down from generation to generation to extract the kernels from the nuts. Inside the marula fruit is a large nut, that has two to four locules. When broken open, each nut contains an oil-rich kernel.
This process takes time, patience and a lot of hard work. The kernels is cold pressed by our custom made presses to produce one of the most sought after natural oils in the world. Marula oil is used either as an ingredient to compliment the base of massage oils, hair oil, shampoos, skin products, cuticle oils, scar/skin products etc.
Marula oil contains antioxidants, is stable and mixes well with other cosmetic ingredients without negative reactions. This is why Marula oil is known to be one of the best oils in the world.
