Even if you haven't heard of baobab butter, you might recognize the tree it comes. Baobab trees have a tall, thick trunk that looks upside down with their roots in the air.
The fruit tree is in the southern areas of Africa. Therefore you can find these trees in Kenya, Malawi, and Madagascar.

Despite its rage, we have few scientific studies on how baobab seed oil functions for our beard or skin. A small 2017 analysis discovered baobab butter moisturizes and enhances skin barrier function.
Therefore this study analyzed the chemical composition of the oil and found that the three primary fatty acids in the oil were oleic acid, linoleic acid, and palmitic acid.
In general, to have an excellent moisturizing ability, natural oils should have a higher proportion of linoleic acid than oleic acid, so this chemical study found a higher proportion of linoleic acid is encouraging.
Although this study was very few (only 20) volunteers, the researchers found that baobab seed oil could reduce skin water loss and help improve skin moisture retention.
