DESCRIPTION

Also known as Manketti oil, Mongongo oil is found from coast to coast in Southern Africa. It thrives in the seasonal dry lands in a broad range of temperatures from sub-freezing to scorching desert heat.

Mongongo nuts are very high in fat (>57%) and are packed with valuable nutrients, including calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc and thiamine. The nuts' high Vitamin E (tocopherol) content lends a high degree of thermal and oxidative stability to the oil, which delays rancidity even in the intense South African heat.
The oil is greatly prized for protecting skin and hair, and as an emollient.
