Buriti Oil for Hair and Skin Care
Buriti oil has many benefits when added to hair and skin care products. Buriti oil comes from fruits produced in buriti palm trees that you only find in the Amazon. It has been used for thousands of years to add moisture and shine to hair and treat aging skin. Brazilians actually refer to the buriti palm tree as the “Tree of Life”.
What is Buriti Oil Composed Of?
After buriti oil is extracted from buriti fruit it is ground and cold pressed to preserve its valuable nutrients, such as carotenoids, vitamins C and E, minerals and fatty acids.
Buriti oil actually has the richest source of beta-carotene, which explains its orange-red color. Beta-carotene is mainly responsible for protecting the membranes surrounding skin cells, which keep them healthy for longer and protect the skin against sun damage.
Fatty Acids and Vitamins C and E
Responsible for promoting significant emollient properties which help rebuild, moisturize and hydrate skin cells. Vitamins also work together as strong antioxidants to protect the skin and hair from sun damage.
