Buriti Oil: "Tree of Life"

Buriti Oil

An all-time favorite of ours to use in a day balm or serum, buriti oil offers 8% UV protection which isn’t nothing. The oil comes from the fruit of the buriti tree, which grows in the Amazon rainforest. It is rich in essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins, making it a highly beneficial ingredient for skincare. It’s super dark orange, so it isn’t a perfect choice on its own unless it’s softened with lighter-colored oils. 

A natural oil derived from the nuts of the buriti fruit, which is native to the Amazon rainforest, it has been used for centuries for both medicinal and cosmetic properties and has been shown to be especially beneficial for those with dry, aging, or sensitive skin

The oil itself is rich in essential fatty acids, including oleic acid, palmitic acid, and linoleic acid, and vitamin E. It is chock full of beta-carotene, which is a potent antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from free radical damage and prevent premature aging. The vitamin E helps to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Here are some of its benefits:
