Baobab

Adansonia digitata
According to a legend, The Almighty from above pulled the baobab out of heaven and replanted it on Earth upside down because it was too proud. And indeed, the tree does appear "upside down" with its large, swollen trunk topped by gnarled branches that resemble enormous roots. The baobab is an emblematic tree of sub-Saharan Africa and like the shea, is also known as the "tree of life". It stands out for its enormous size, incredible lifespan (some claim around 5,000 years) and multiple uses and benefits. Clarins Laboratories have demonstrated the capacity of baobab leaves, which are rich in anti-free radical flavonoids, to protect cellular communication against the harmful effects of UV. The oil extracted from baobab seeds is well-known for repairing and smoothing nail structure.
