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.

Brasilians treat the buriti tree as sacred because it contains the nutrients and the support needed to sustain life. The oil is used in traditional medicine to protect the skin and to address a variety of skin conditions.
