Inspired by our heritage, we created natural beauty products that are sourced from within Africa and handcrafted for a global citizen.
We use African ingredients
African Black Soap
Unrefined, natural Shea Butter is one of nature’s superheroes. Shea butter is manually extracted from the nuts of the wild shea tree that are collected and processed by an estimated 16 million women across 21 countries in the Sahel – giving it the name “Women’s Gold”. Shea butter has been used as a skin and hair care ingredient for centuries. Its high concentration of vitamins and fatty acids make it a great product for smoothing, soothing, conditioning and moisturising your skin.

Squalene Oil and Hyaluronic Acid
Squalene Oil and Hyaluronic Acid are two additional hero moisturisers used by Orobaa to help rejuvenate your skin. It is said that keeping your skin hydrated will rejuvenate your skin as the outer layer of your skin has the moisture it needs to flush away toxins and carry nutrients to the skin’s cells. Squalene Oil is a tremendous emollient that mimics your skin’s natural oils, protects your collagen and elastin that helps soothe and soften your skin. Hyaluronic Acid a fabulous humectant (an ingredient that attracts water), is capable of holding up to 1000 times its own weight in water, is often known as the moisture magnet as it pushes moisture into your skin, increases your skin’s suppleness and softens the appearance of fine lines.

Liquid Gold or Argan Oil is the superhero of Beauty as it is a wonderful anti-ageing oil containing high levels of omega 6 fatty acids which help rejuvenate and improve the elasticity of your skin. Traditionally, in Morocco, it was used as a topical oil to treat dry skin, acne, psoriasis, eczema, wrinkles, joint pain and skin inflammation. It was also used to prevent hair loss. It is easily absorbed and is often blended with jojoba oil for a daily skin treat, or with rosehip for a rejuvenating facial oil. It has some anti sebum activity that helps reduce greasiness and improves the appearance of oily face skins.

Coconut oil is well known in skincare for its rich moisturising properties. With a high lauric acid content, that is reported to have anti-microbial activity, Coconut oil is being used for the treatment of acne with promising results. It is also one of the only oils known to penetrate the hair strand making it great for use in conditioner.
Baobab Oil comes from the Baobab Tree, often referred to as “Tree of Life” by local communities, provides a wealth of nourishing nutrients for skin and hair including Vitamins A, C and E, as well as high levels of omega 3, 6 and 9 oils. Baobab oil helps boost skin elasticity, encourages cell regeneration and improves radiance. It is good at treating very dry skin and dryness associated with many dry skin conditions such as eczema, sunburn and psoriasis.
Macadamia oil, also known as the unsung hero of skin regeneration, is rich in squalene and has the highest level of palmitic acid amongst plant oils. Palmitic acid naturally occurs in your skin, but levels drop as you get older which suggests Macadamia will likely be a valuable anti-ageing agent.
Benefits include ? anti-ageing
Known as the “Elixir of Youth”, Marula oil is high in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, amino acids and vitamin C. It inhibits the enzymes elastin and collagenase, both of which accelerate the signs of ageing and prevent the skin from losing its elasticity. It is a fast absorbing, lightweight oil also effective at keeping hair soft, supple and moisturised.
Rosehip is one of the best plant oils you can use on your skin. The oil is high inessential fatty acids, including the naturally occurring form of vitamin A (retinoic acid). These essential fatty acids smooth wrinkles by hydrating the skin and thought to slow signs of ageing. Rosehip oil has high linoleic and linolenic acids both of which are involved in the cell regeneration process. It is fast absorbing and is one of the best oils to use for wrinkles and scarring and has been used in the treatment of psoriasis
Last but not least is Sesame Oil that has been dubbed the “Queen of Oils” due to its nutritional qualities as well as its richness in Vitamin E, antioxidants, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. It has been widely used over the years for healing skin and may have strengths in treating acne as it does not clog the skin’s pores.
I regained my confidence and the dark marks are continuing to fade because I still use the products. I even use the overnight Excellence Night Cream to renew and give my skin extra moisture and I only use make-up when I feel like it – if I don’t! No problem.
I don’t feel less beautiful. I will never stop using Orobaa products. If you are having problems with your face, I would advise you to give it a try! It helped me, it could help you too.
I have been using Orobaa products for over a year now. These natural products have done wonders for my skin. I have tried many branded products to no avail. I was then introduced to the Authentic African Black Soap and my acne and dark blemishes started to disappear within a few weeks.
I then started using the Charisma Shea Butter not only moisturized my skin but left it flawless and pimple free. I was amazed at the results. I am now using the Authentic Face Wash that Orobaa is testing, combined with Nurture Face Moisturiser, which is a lightly textured moisturiser. I also use the Excellence Night Cream = perfect for the winter.
I have no mistake by going the route of Orobaa. I am simply amazed by the miraculous results.
