About this product

Calodendrum capense (Cape chestnut) Oil

Cold pressed unrefined 

Cosmetic use only 

he oil comes from the Cape Chestnut tree, the Cape Chestnut oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the fruit. The oil is used in skin and hair care products due to its high essential fatty acid and antioxidant content. It is often recommended for UV protection. Cape Chestnut oil is high in palmitic, oleic and linoleic acids.

Yangu seed is being increasingly used in the cosmetic industry and in particular in facial soaps, as when combined withcleansing agents it lessens the drying effects associated with classic soaps. In parts of Africa where it is grown local women have traditionally used the oil as a skin oil and it is becoming more and more popular in African skin care ranges. It is also used in cosmetics for UV protecting properties, as well as its naturally present antioxidants.

Common Uses:
Soaps, facial creams and lotions, hair conditioners, sun care products, massage oils and balms.
