Marula Carrier Oil

The users consider marula oil a wholesome oil that revitalizes and softens the skin. They fondly call it “The Elixir of Youth”. There exist several marula oil manufacturers in Africa due to their proximity to sources of marula fruits. However, the network of wholesale suppliers facilitates its distribution to users across the world.


Marula trees are also known as Morula, Cider Tree, Elephant Tree, Dania, Cat Thorn, Umganu, Mushomo, and Jelly Plum. Marula belongs to the Anacardiaceae family which has other plant members such as mango, cashew, sumac, and pistachio. Marula is a single-stemmed, middle-size, deciduous tree with a widespread crown. It grows up to 36 feet in low altitudes and woodlands of Southern, East, and West Africa and Madagascar. The tree produces green fruits with a distinct, succulent, and tart flavor. 

The unripe fruits fall on the ground and then ripen with a yellow color on the soil only. They contain walnut-sized, thick-walled endocarp covering seeds and the seeds are much sought-after for their nutty flavor. The marula fruits have been a source of food, alcohol, and income. The local people use plant parts for animal fodder, leather treatment, making medicines, insecticides, dyes, construction material, and protective substances. Therefore, the tree has considerable socio-economic significance.
