Origin and Source
Welcome to Ghana! Our product is originated from here, where we source baobab seeds for natual cosmetic applications.
We are procuring baobab seeds from Northern Ghana and Burkina Faso in Africa, which are located near the Sahel region.
All baobab fruits are collected from the wild and can be traced back to the individual collectors. The seeds used are leftovers from food consumption.
SUSTAINABEAUTY from “The GREAT GREEN WALL”
ECOHANCE® Soft Baobab oil is derived from the seeds of the baobab fruit, which grows in the Sahel region of West Africa. Baobab trees are able to grow in poor soil and withstand harsh conditions such as heat and drought, making them crucial for preventing desertification in the region. Evonik is committed to responsible sourcing of baobab oil in partnership with the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) and supports the Great Green Wall Initiative. This ensures that the sourcing of baobab oil is sustainable and promotes social and economic development in the region while protecting the local ecosystem. Additionally, ECOHANCE® Soft Baobab oil is FairWild™ certified, which guarantees transparency and traceability in the supply chain.
Proven Superior Quality and Profound Claims Substantiation
ECOHANCE® Soft Baobab oil is unmatched in quality and purity, meeting the highest standards for cosmetic applications with its light color and neutral odor.
Its fatty acid composition is well-balanced, containing a high amount of nature-identical triglycerides with unsaturated omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids. This makes ECOHANCE® Soft Baobab oil an excellent choice for cosmetic formulations, providing a rich and soft after-feel on the skin with good absorption. It also has a high amount of tocopherol, which ensures high oxidative stability.
Moreover, several dermatological studies have demonstrated the beneficial effects of ECOHANCE® Soft Baobab oil on the skin.
Take Baobab Oil for Beauty: Empower women for a better life
Our commitment extends beyond the beauty industry as we strive to make a positive impact on the land and people of Africa.
Through the sourcing and supply of baobab oil, we aim to create commercial activities that also benefit the local community and environment. We believe in combining our business activities with social and eco-projects that create value for the people of Ghana. We reinvest a portion of the value generated from sourcing baobab seed oil into local social projects, such as training for local women and sponsorship of community funds. Our goal is to contribute to the sustainable development of the region and improve the lives of those who call it home.

“The baobab tree is full of value from roots to the entire tree. But currently we are not enjoying fullest potential, especially for baobab seed and oil. Now with the coming of Evonik, this is going to be the biggest income contributor in terms of what Baobab does for the community,”
- Julius Awaregya, director of the NGO Organization for Indigenous Initiatives and Sustainability in Ghana.
