Manketti trees grow throughout South Africa. The nuts and the oil of the manketti tree have been used traditionally for their nutritive value. The oil, also called Mongongo oil, is highly emollient and protects the skin from harsh winds and sun. The Kwangali use this oil as a rich, nutrient hair treatment oil. Use Manketti oil in cream, lotion, suncare product, lip balm, hair conditioning and body butter formulations at 5-10%.
