In Africa, the Ximenia tree is known as the Tree of Life, such are the skin-softening properties of its oil. This softening body scrub gently exfoliates to leave skin gleamingly smooth.
The Ximenia tree grows wild in Northern Namibia. Harvested and processed by women from around 20 different villages, the Ximenia fruit is at the heart of Namibian local communities. Inside the fruit is a brittle-shelled stone, which reveals a soft, cream-colored seed that becomes the luxuriously rich and thick Ximenia oil.
