Details about our Organic Buriti Fruit Oil
Candela Peru Artisan Story

Madre de Dios, a mountainous area of pristine forests, is one of the poorest regions of Peru. The most lucrative industry here is the collection and processing of the Amazon (Brazil) nut into oils, candy and candles for export. Unfortunately, few producers are informed or rewarded for extracting the oil in a sustainable manner meaning the region's rates of rainforest destruction are almost as high as its poverty. 

Candela Peru is an alternative biotrade organization which began acting as a fair trade business in the brazil nut industry in 1989 in order to improve circumstances for this region of Peru.

Buriti Fruit Oil; Mauritia Flexuosa Fruit Oil

Rich in vitamin A, Buriti Oil is a plant-based alternative to retinoids. It's high antioxidant and vitamin content make it ideal for combating free radicals, the aging process, and soothing dry skin. Buriti fruit has a chestnut shell that's beautifully patterned with bright yellow pulp inside. The pulp is used to make drinks, ice cream, preserves, and clean beauty products. The oil is a beautiful amber color, and a few drop go a long way. It can be applied directly to the skin or mixed with moisturizers and other beauty products to provide deep hydration. While beneficial for all skin types, it excels in treating dry, mature and aging skin, eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions.

Buriti Oil is the world's richest source of plant-based beta-carotene and also high in Vitamin C and Oleic and Linoleic acid. Buriti Oil rebuilds and hydrates skin cells and protects natural collagen and elastin while restoring moisture to aging or sun-damaged skin.
