Sheer Luxe writes:
“Want tighter, brighter and more youthful skin? Buriti oil may well be the answer. Sourced from the fruit of Brazil’s native palm trees, this anti-ageing powerhouse is a hot topic in the beauty world, and with good reason.
Shaping up to be the next big thing in skincare, buriti oil is sourced from the Brazilian buriti tree, the country’s native palm tree. A cold-pressed, all-natural oil, this bountiful beauty secret has since made its way into serums and creams in recent months, and is prime to rejuvenate and smooth the complexion.
With three times more antioxidising beta-carotene than carrots, buriti oil is the richest source of beta-carotene (vitamin A) in the world. When vitamin A is applied topically to the skin, it converts into an active form of the vitamin called retinol, a supercharged nutrient that can boost collagen production and cell turnover as well as neutralise free radicals from pollution and fade pigmentation. If that wasn’t enough, buriti oil is also packed with oleic acid, essential fatty acids and vitamin E for an impressive hydration hit. Plus, studies are also underway to confirm its potential as a mild SPF, meaning it could be used in the long run to protect against sun damage.
Buriti oil has strong healing properties, making it an ingredient to note if you struggle with sun damage, dryness or are concerned with fine lines and wrinkles. Everyone should consider using it topically to maintain a youthful and healthy complexion.”
Buriti oil features in our Amazonian Cacay Facial Oil, alongside our other favourite South American ingredients – Cacay Oil, Acai Oil, Amazonian Lily Extract and Brazil nut oil, for smoother, glowing and supple skin. Sounds pretty amazing, right? Try it for yourself, you can shop it here.
