Oil insights: Manketti seed oil
People often wonder where beauty oils come from, and of course it varies from one oil to the next.
Argan oil, for example, comes from a type of Moroccan tree, or more specifically its kernels. Rosehip oil, on the other hand, is sourced from the rose fruit, the rose hip, and is made from this fruit's seeds.
Coconut oil is an easy one to guess, and comes from coconut fruit, just as its name implies.
So what of Manketti seed oil? The name of this splendid oil may not conjure up the image of a plant you know well - like a rose bush or a coconut tree - in the same way that some of the brilliant oils mentioned above do.
It's unlikely that you'll find one living in your garden, but the manketti tree helps in the creation of this natural beauty product. It also has another name which is wonderfully pleasant to say: the mongongo tree. It sounds fantastic - and fantastic is certainly a word that could describe the natural oil it produces.
Here are some interesting insights into the manketti tree: It grows in Africa, where people eat the tree's fruit, which is shaped a little like an egg. This leafy tree's fruit is sometimes called the mongongo nut, and it's from this fruit that Manketti Oil is sourced. Cold press the nut part of this fruit and out comes this exciting oil.
How this oil can be used
This oil can be used on your skin, by rubbing a small amount of the deep brown emollient liquid into the surface. Here at Fushi, we've recommended using several drops in the moisturiser that you use each day.
What it has inside it
Vitamin fans will be pleased to hear that Manketti Oil contains Vitamin E, while this exciting product also has linolenic acid inside.

People think that this oil has restructuring abilities, that it can be hydrating and that it can be regenerative.

If you are looking for something even lower on that scale, you should go for Argan, Rosehip, Grapeseed, Hemp -oil which are 0-1. I hope this helps.
