Birchbox will feature Marula Oil in their April beauty shipment, along with a few other high-end beauty products.

“We are thrilled about our partnership with Birchbox and looking forward to the feedback customers give about our NEW beauty oil,” said Marula-The Leakey Collection founders, Dr. Ashton Kaidi and Katy and Philip Leakey.

The Leakeys and Dr. Ashton Kaidi came together over their shared belief in the powerful healing properties of pure Marula Oil. Dr. Kaidi witnessed the healing benefits on the skin of his cancer patients, and the Leakeys saw the benefits in the lives of women and children in rural East Africa.

Marula Oil also contains high levels of important antioxidants including, tocopherol (vitamin E), tochotrienol, phenolic compounds and flavinoids. Marula oil can improve skin hygiene by reducing skin surface bacteria.
