Buriti Oil, Mauritia flexuosa

Buriti is nicknamed by the Amazon Indians “the great tree of life”, because everything is used: branches, bark and fruits. Its oil is particularly beneficial to skin with a dull complexion and lacking vitality.

Very rich in beta-carotene, it also contains tocopherol, as well as vitamins (B1, B2, B5 and C). It moisturizes all skin types. 

The fruit is recognizable by its scaly skin which resembles that of reptiles.
