Sausage tree cream is made with an extract of Kigelia Africana, a beautiful tree which grows across the continent of Africa and some parts of Australasia. It’s easy to identify by the unusual sausage-like fruits which dangle jauntily from its branches. This very special tree has a long history of use in its native habitat, where it is most famous for its unique ability to help heal all manner of skin complaints including eczema, psoriasis, and fungal infections such as athletes foot.
The traditional healers of Africa have harnessed the medicinal powers of the sausage tree for many hundreds of years. As well as anecdotal evidence from traditional use, there now exists a large body of scientific research to support its efficacy.
In tests, extracts from the bark of the tree were shown to contain chemicals which block the growth of harmful bacteria. Studies also showed that extracts from the sausage tree have the ability to inhibit harmful micro-organisms including the following:
- Escherichia coli – known to causes abscesses
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa – involved in skin sepsis and infections
- Staphylococcus aureus – an organism that causes impetigo and skin abscesses
- Candida albicans – the fungal organism that causes thrush and athletes foot
