The vibrant orange-reddish Buriti oil is made from the fruit that grows on the majestic Buriti palm tree (pronounced bu-REE-chee), also known as Aguaje. The palm grows in tropical South American swamps, and can reach a height up to 32 metres. The shiny, round, chestnut coloured fruit is edible and is commonly used to make juice, jam, ice cream, fermented wine and other snacks in Peru. The palm tree is known as ‘the tree of life’ by the locals.
The Buriti oil is highly concentrated with oleic acid, tocopherols (vitamin E) and carotenoids, especially beta-carotene (precursor to vitamin A). It is said to contain even more beta-carotene than carrots. No wonder the Buriti oil has been called the Amazonian beauty secret.
The high vitamin E and beta-carotene content gives the oil profound antioxidant qualities. Antioxidants help to neutralise free radicals which can be damaging to the skin and cause ageing. Antioxidants protect the skin cells from damage and help to keep the skin smooth and supple.
The essential fatty acids have skin regenerating effects. This makes the oil especially soothing and calming. It can be used on skin prone dryness, itchiness, redness and rashes.
The deeply hydrating and moisturizing properties of Buriti oil make it an excellent anti-ageing oil, as well as rejuvenating for dry/damaged hair.
The native people of the Amazonian Forest have also been using the Buriti oil to protect their skin from sun damage. They would finely grind the fruit and apply the paste to their skin for sun protection when they were going to spend prolonged periods of time in the sunshine.
This is a non-standardised, unrefined and natural oil. Each batch varies and displays a set of unique characteristics. Sediment or natural particles of the ingredients may be visible in the oil. This is simply down to our oils never being refined, deodorized or filtered, and does not imply the oil is faulty.
