Comments: This is a wonderful oil at a wonderful price! I combine Copaiba Balsam Oil with Andoriba and Acai oils to treat my acne. This blend is also great for inflammatory or sensitive reactive skin. Thank you FNWL for offering such great products!

Comments: I've been using Copaiba Balsam as a nightly facial oil. I have oily/combination skin. This has helped, not miraculously, but I do see some improvement in the healing rate of my breakouts. The scent is very pungent at first. It's not totally unpleasant... maybe a little eucalyptus like.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
