Understanding Red Palm Oil
Red palm oil is derived from the tropical oil palm fruit (Elaeis guineensis), native to West Africa. It is crucial to be mindful of the source of your palm oil as some producers contribute to deforestation and produce unhealthy refined palm oil that lacks its potential benefits.
At GuDee, we are committed to sustainability and environmental responsibility. Our natural, unrefined red palm oil is sourced from small local farmers in West Africa, Red Palm Oil's ancestral home. This ensures ethical and sustainable sourcing as there are no deforestation concerns and also ensures we're positively impacting communities in West Africa. Our Palm oil is 100% organic, wildlife-friendly, deforestation-free, fairly traded, and socially responsible.
Benefits of Red Palm Oil for Skin
Red palm oil is rich in antioxidants, which combat the visible signs of ageing on your skin. Unlike many seed oils, red palm oil is high in saturated fat and remains solid when cool. This stability prevents oxidation when exposed to air, heat, or your body, allowing the oil to deeply nourish your skin.
Compared to highly processed and toxin-filled alternatives, all-natural and healthy products like red palm oil are superior choices for skin care. Additionally, red palm oil contains vitamin E in tocopherol and tocotrienol form, which protects your skin from the sun and assists in reducing the appearance of scars.
Red palm oil's carotenoids provide potent protection against harmful UV rays, safeguarding your skin at a cellular level. The vibrant red colour of red palm oil signifies minimal processing, ensuring the highest concentration of carotenoids, tocotrienols, and tocopherols.
Furthermore, red palm oil contains CoQ10, a naturally occurring compound in your body that diminishes with age. CoQ10 contributes to anti-ageing effects, protects your skin, and enhances elasticity and collagen production.
Using Red Palm Oil for Skin
Although red palm oil benefits many, it may cause breakouts and clogged pores, especially on the face. However, this reaction is subjective and varies based on individual skin types. Those who experience clogged pores from coconut oil may find red palm oil more suitable for their skin.
To make the most of red palm oil for your skin, apply it immediately after a shower while your skin is still damp. This traps moisture and provides nourishment. You may notice a light red tint on your skin, but it easily washes off. Red palm oil might also temporarily leave a slight yellow tint on your nails.
