Baobab is the fruit of the baobab tree, an iconic tree native to Africa, nicknamed the Tree of Life, and which lives for several thousand years.
This very special fruit with a slightly spicy flavor and also reminiscent of a delicious mixture of caramel with pear and grapefruit is rich in several important nutrients, and plays a vital role in feeding the populations of the savannah of Namibia and Botswana.
Baobab seems to be a gift from nature, as it covers a good part of the nutritional needs of these populations that have few options to choose from.
Baobab also obtains an excellent oil with antioxidant properties and an excellent balance of essential fatty acids and saturated fatty acids, with regenerating and moisturizing capacities for the skin, especially beneficial in dry skin and with eczema.

It is also very rich in several Vitamins, including Vitamin C, B1, B3 and B6, it is also a fruit rich in minerals such as Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium.
Baobab kernels are also an excellent source of soluble and insoluble fibers, being also considered prebiotic and a good friend of the intestinal flora.

Just Vegan is an independent web store bringing vegan affordable goods to people and other animals all over the world.
We're always searching for products that are best for your health, less damaging for the environment and more ethical.
As an independent store we have no ties with any brands and will dynamically continue to replace products by others that are better and offer further ethical and environmental advances. This fits with our no compromise policy.
We welcome all your feedback, including warning us of any mistake or lack of information on the website and informing us of any ethical issues with a company or product we sell.
How we choose the products we sell:
* Must be vegan and as such not tested on animals
* Foods must not have hydrogenated fat or palm even if organic and RSPO certified. Although we reject palmitic acid based soaps, some personal hygiene and cosmetic products may have palm derivatives as the quantities are usually minimal and it's a difficult task to know if some ingredients are palm derived or not
Products without the "Palm free" label don't necessarily contain a palm derivative. It might be the case that we still haven't found out if any of the ingredients is derived from palm.
* Preference for organic
* Less sugars, mainly cane sugar
* Preference for social responsibility certified, like Fairtrade
* Less food miles
* Less packaging
With all these attributes being considered we take into account the opinion of our customers about the products' taste and performance.
