Aguaje (Buriti) Fruit Oil

INCI name
Mauritia Flexuosa Fruit Oil

Cold Pressed oil obtained from the Aguaje (Buriti) fruit from the Moriche Palm in the Peruvian Amazon. Presents a fat composition rich in mono unsaturated fatty acid (Oleic acid). Also contains Palmitic and Linoleic acids. Unsaturated fatty acids help moisturize, soften and protect the skin and also help boost collagen and elastin production. The fruit is considered the richest natural source of beta carotene (30 mg/100 g of pulp) and its oil has a higher concentration (118 mg/100 g of pulp), exceeding 17 times what is found in carrots (6.6 mg/100 g of pulp). Beta carotene is one of the most powerful antioxidants known for their cell renewal, for protecting the skin against the damaging effects of sunlight and for neutralizing free radicals in the skin. It can be used to treat burns, because of its soothing qualities and its ability to promote the formation of scar tissue.
