At Dr Jackson’s, our products are based on over two decades of research on the medicinal and traditional properties of plants. This research has particularly focused on one truly incredible ingredient: Baobab (Adansonia digitata).
The spectacular looking Baobab tree, largely native to the African continent, is known as the “Tree of Life”. Every part of it, from leaf to root, has long been cherished for its healing properties. African women use the seed oil to help protect their skin and hair from harsh environments, as well as to treat dry skin conditions. The Baobab fruit is rich in antioxidants known to help protect the skin against environmental pollutants. Baobab is prized for its moisturising properties - it is exceptionally nutrient-rich which helps to improve skin firmness and strength, keep nails strong and healthy, and to diminish the look of fine lines to reveal radiant, glowing skin.
The wonderful moisturising properties of Baobab are what make it one of Dr Jackson’s key ingredients. Always sustainably sourced from Africa, the cold-pressed oil from the fruit’s seeds is incorporated into a wide range of our skincare formulations and the fruit’s funicles are used in our Expedition Tea to help deliver its energising, antioxidant properties.
