DRY EXTRACT OF BRAZIL NUT 1KG

ORIGIN

The Brazil Nut is one of the most important species of extractive exploitation of the Amazon, occupying a key role in socio-economic organisation of large areas of forest extraction.

POPULAR USAGE 

The Brazil nut is widely used as an ingredient in cooking and in making cookies and ice cream. Its protein value of 18% is quite significant comparing it as “vegetable meat”.

CHARACTERISTICS

It is rich in linoleic acid that is port of the complex composition of the lipids of the skin, helping in the skin barrier function and controlling the transepidermal water  loss (TEWL).   The brazil nut oil contains liposoluble vitamins such as A and E, which are essential in protecting the skin, preventing aging and appearance of wrinkles and loss of elasticity. It is a rich source for selenium (126 ppm) known as powerful natural antioxidant that protects the skin tissues against free radicals released by harmful solar insolation and environmental  pollution . Has one of the highest natural concentrations in phytic acid, a natural plant antioxidant, most often used as a skin lighting agent in the skin core industry.

SKIN CARE

Excellent moisturiser for dry skin. Humectant that prevents the appearance of wrinkles and loss of elasticity.
