Nutrient-rich baobab oil is the base to the whole collection. Have you heard about the skincare benefits of baobab oil? Do you know the design inspiration of the MELYON packaging?
The brand pays homage to the founder - Roger Dupé’s roots in Ghana and Togo while developing the products. The idea was to use a traditional strong ingredient that could represent strength and longevity while helping the skin fighting foreign conditions.
About the baobab tree
The baobab is known as "the Tree of Life" for its vitality and longevity in Africa. It has a great sustainability story and is also a natural and organic ingredient.
Moreover, the sturdy trunk of baobab tree has a very strong water storage capacity which makes it capable to cope with the severe weather.
The skincare benefits of baobab oil
The baobab fruit and powder are rich in vitamin C and believed to have antimicrobial, antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. Rich in texture yet so light and airy. It is easily absorbed into the skin and does not feel like oil. It improves the elasticity of the skin, softening and nourishing the outer layer of the skin.
The dense branches of the baobab tree is like a round sphere. MELYON translated this to a bottle that stands out as this huge tree being visible from far away, which highlights the founder’s roots and also perfectly combines with the Scandinavian aesthetic.
