Brazil Nut Oil
Mighty Brazil nuts are packed with nutrients known to improve the health of
your skin and hair. So naturally, we work with the best in the business to ensure our
products are enriched with top-quality Brazil nut oil. We work with Candela and Castañero
nut collectors who sustainably gather Brazil nuts from the forest floor in Peru to create
our moisturizing Brazil nut oil. Our trade relationship helps to protect the Madre de Dios
Producing skin-smoothing brazil nut oil is quite a journey! Castañero nut
collectors gather wild nuts which then travel by riverboats to reach a processing plant. The
nuts are then hand-cracked, cold-pressed and filtered to create high quality oil.
Brazil nut trees only bear fruit in untouched rainforest. Our demand for this
rich oil provides an environmentally friendly alternative source of income to destructive
practices like ‘slash-and-burn’ logging. Together we’ve helped to protect over 8,000
hectares of Amazonian rainforest!
