Andiroba seeds produce a rich oil that can restore the skin and treat inflammation.
By Carolina Schott
The Andirobeira is one of the most popular trees in the Amazon forest. It carries powerful therapeutic benefits that make it an incredible homemade remedy. From repelling insects to healing eczema and psoriasis, the people of the forest consider Andiroba one of the best treatments to survive in such a wonderful, yet often hostile, environment.
After 3 years of intense research, we have refined the cosmetic properties of this golden liquid. Because it is rich in limonoids and terpenes, Andiroba oil restores the skin and balances its defense system. Discover how we harvest this wonderful oil and how it can benefit you!
Step 1: Sustainable Sourcing
The Andiroba fruits fall on the ground near the tree and is collected by Natura's partner cooperatives.
Step 2: Energy-Efficient Drying
After being thoroughly washed, the seeds dry for 28 days. Typically, seed drying takes place in electric stoves that require large amounts of energy. Because sustainability is at the forefront of our processes, we – along with help from Brazilian locals – have developed an alternative method using handmade greenhouses built in the style of stilts.
Step 3: Pure Extraction
After the seeds dry, the pulp is removed to obtain the rich oil. Our extraction method preserves the purity of the oil compounds as well as its functional benefits.
