Our completely natural cleansing oil removes makeup, soil, and pollutants without stripping skin of its protective lipid layer. Our Midnight Oil cleanser contains the finest quality Marula Oil from Kenya and Tanzania to provide natural protection against environmental damage and free radicals that lead to early aging. The oil is naturally processed using individually hand-extracted kernels, cold-pressing, and state-of-the-art filtration. Helping the skin maintain a proper oil and water content while cleansing is the key to everything that follows. Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, also known as Tea Seed or Tsubaki Oil, is similar to the skin’s own sebum, creating a harmonious interaction that can penetrate, while lifting away debris and makeup. Millet Seed Extract is known to improve skin’s radiance and illuminate the complexion while visibly reducing wrinkles.
Our Marula Oil
The key ingredient in our Midnight Oil Collection is Marula Oil. Marula Oil is produced from nuts harvested from trees growing across a wild swath of East Africa from Kenya into Tanzania by a group of people who have a strong conviction to developing sustainable living practices in a broad range of areas such as farming, energy production, and water use. The trees are plentiful. The fruit typically falls to the ground where it ferments and rots or is consumed by elephants and baboons. The fallen fruit is sometimes gathered by women to make juice, jams, and a Marula liqueur.
After the removing the fruit, the nuts are sun dried. Manual extraction of the oil-rich kernels (two or three may be inside each shell) requires tremendous force. Careful inspection during removal by hand ensures the finest quality oil. The kernels are processed in small batches by pressing and filtering the oil using high-quality stainless steel presses and filtering equipment to ensure quality and sterility. Of all the uses of the Marula, it is the oil that has brought spiritual status to the tree because of its healing properties.
