Ximenia, also known as Sour Plum Fruit, hails from Southern Africa and is produced entirely by women. It contains a rare and powerful anti-inflammatory active called Ximenyic Acid. While this oil is not yet well known, it has been used for centuries by local women for its various skincare benefits.


Skincare Benefits

Ximenia oil has been used by African women for centuries to soothe red and inflamed skin, keep acne and skin aging at bay and to promote a soft, even complexion. Ximenia oil has the ability to improve micro-circulation, rejuvenate dry and chapped skin, and delay skin aging by increasing moisture levels in the skin and improving skin elasticity.


Ximenia oil is filled with fatty acids and antioxidants, which hydrates and moisturizes the skin. It absorbs quickly into the skin to improve moisture levels and acts as a protective sealant for even the most delicate, and temperamental skin. Ximenia’s finish is soft, velvety, and extremely nourishing.
