BAO-MED is a skin, scalp and hair product range made from the very unique Baobab tree.

African baobab trees, scientifically known as Adansonia Digitata, are the oldest living organisms in Africa. These trees manage to live longer than any plant and animal around them, the trees can live to be more than 1000 years old. Baobab trees contain enormous amounts of water. This water is stored in the cells of their trunk, which gives the trees their characteristic swollen shape. This helps them survive in the driest regions of Africa.

Baobab trees originated millions of years ago in West Africa and spread over time to other parts of the world, creating new species. There are 9 baobab species, of which 6 have originated in Madagascar, one in Australia and two in Africa. The fruit from the baobab tree that is used for our Bao-Med products comes from South Africa.
