Brazil Oil (Bertholletia excelsa)

Brazil nut oil (Bertholletia excelsa)

Brazil nuts are a good source of unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, squalene and phytosterols, which are beneficial both internally and externally.

These nuts are so rich in oil that they will burn like a candle if lit.

Brazil nut oil has a high affinity with the natural oils produced by our skin and scalp and it will absorb with ease.

It is moisturizing and conditioning for skin and hair.

The oil is a popular cosmetic material and used in soaps, skincare and hair care.

They are the edible seeds of a South American tree, which grows in the Amazonian rain forest.

Brazil nuts are of great commercial importance to the local people there, and a vital part of the forest’s ecosystem.

We’ve used Brazil nut oil in our Jasmine and Henna Fluff-ease hair treatment to moisturize the scalp and add weight and shine to the hair.
