Cacay trees grow natively in the Amazon rainforest. The entire nut can be used in some way. The peel can used for cattle feed or compost, the shell had high heating power that makes it a great as a bio-fuel, the nut is pressed for its oil and the leftover meal is rich in protein (over 40%!), minerals, omegas and fibre, making it great as a food source or to make nut milk. Our supplier is actively replanting Cacay trees in the Amazon, from which they hand harvest the Cacay nuts to make our Cacay oil. Since starting their business a few years ago, they have already re-planted 120,000 trees and they are planning to plant a further 100,000 trees this year.
Paracress Plant Extract
This extract has been clinically tested to target the loss of skin firmness and appearance of deep wrinkles. By stimulating the fibroblast biomechanical functions, Paracress plant extract helps to reorganise and tighten collagen fibres in the supporting tissue of the skin, resulting in firmer feeling and smoother looking skin.
Squalane helps to soften and smooth the skin by replenishing surface skin lipids, making it an excellent skin moisturiser. This moisture magnet is needed to help restore the skin’s natural protective barrier helping your skin to regain its dewy glow. Your skin’s sebum is naturally made up of approximately up to 12% squalene, which explains its excellent compatibility with the skin. It is quickly absorbed onto the skin, leaving no greasy feel.
