Buriti (bu-REE-chee) Oil is sourced from the the Buriti tree, also known as the Moriche Palm, a large palm tree that grows in swamp regions of South America. The Buriti tree bears a sweet fruit with a brown, scaly exterior and yellow pulp.
The pulp of the Buriti tree is extremely rich in essential fatty acids and anti-oxidant carotenoids, including beta-carotene. Buriti Oil is considered to be one of the richest sources of beta-carotene, with levels exceeding that of carrot seed oil. Natives of Brazil refer to the Buriti tree as “The Life Tree” and consider it sacred because it contains the nutrients and support needed to sustain life. They use the oil to protect the skin and to treat a variety of skin conditions including burns and sunburn.
Buriti Oil possesses the extraordinary ability to nourish, moisturize, and repair the epidermis as well as improve the elasticity of aging skin. Buriti Oil has strong antioxidant properties and protects the skin from free radical damage.
