The baobab tree is know as Africa's Tree of Life! It is said to be a symbol of life and positivity in a landscape where little else can thrive. Its hollow trunk and branches capture and store up to 5 tons of rainwater during wet season, meaning it is able to produce a nutrient-dense fruit in the dry season too. The tree thrives into old age and often lives more than 2,000 years.

The baobab tree seeds are known to deeply hydrate hair, protect it against UV stress and heat, resulting in stronger, softer and protected hair. TRI-K partner with local villages in Africa to harvest the baobab seeds. This partnership allows local women to financially contribute to their families and communities. The baobab seeds are only collected from fruit that has fallen naturally from the trees to protect them from damage, and eliminate human interference with the parent trees’ natural life-cycles.

TRI-K's Baobab Tein NPNF® utilises the powerful properties of baobab to help defend skin from photo-aging and target anti-aging for hair care. Based on substantial in vivo testing, Baobab Tein NPNF® has been proven to offer novel benefits to hair and skin care formulations. Baobab Tein NPNF® is a 5-in-1 anti-aging solution that helps to repair damage, increase hair strength, protect from UV-damage, moisturise dry hair and nourish strands from root to tip.
