The buriti, also known as the moriche palm, is a large palm tree that grows in swamp regions of South America. Natives refer to it as the Life Tree. The buriti tree bears a sweet fruit with a brown, scaly exterior and yellow pulp. The pulp is extremely rich in essential fatty acids and carotenoids, including beta-carotene. Buriti Fruit Oil is considered to be one of the richest sources of beta-carotene, with levels exceeding that of carrot seed oil. Brasilian natives treat the buriti tree as sacred because it contains the nutrients and support needed to sustain life. Natives use the oil to protect the skin and to treat a variety of skin conditions including burns and sunburn.

Buriti Fruit Oil, Mauritia flexuosa, possesses the remarkable ability to nourish, moisturize and repair the epidermis and improve the elasticity of maturing skin. It is highly beneficial in formulations intended to treat and heal burns and sun damaged skin. Buriti Oil has strong antioxidant properties and protects the skin from free radical damage.

A little heavy, but can be mixed with other oils for a lighter texture. Wonderful!

The Buriti Fruit Oil is beautiful in color. I make lip balm with it and also include Sea Buck Thorn Oil, Rose Hip Seed Oil, Black Currant Oil, Mango Butter and Shea Butter. It smells wonderful and has a natural tint for lips.
