Mongongo oil is used as a body rub by the Kung bushmen of the Kalahari to cleanse and moisturize their skin, and protect it against the harsh desert environment.
The same tribe also eats the Mongongo fruit as their primary food. The nuts also contain: calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, thiamine, riboflavin, nicotinic acid, and high concentrations of vitamin E. The !Kung bushmen are one of the few peoples of the world whose blood pressure does not increase with age.
Mongongo Oil is sourced from a rural village in Zambia, Africa. A social worker noticed the opportunity to help a group of women create an income by starting a business and learning how to efficiently harvest, process and perform quality assurance. The goal was to help them create more self-worth while increasing their net-worth.
