Historically a victim of its own success due to its high nutritional value, the Brazil nut is harvested in specific areas of the tropical Amazon rainforest, and comes from the Brazil Nut tree (Bertholletia excelsa).

Rich and balanced in omegas-6 and 9, full of antioxidants such as selenium and squalene, this flagship cosmetic oil establishes itself as a must-have with moisturizing, nourishing and protective benefits. Its use will gently contribute to increase skin suppleness and elasticity. The Brazil Nut carrier oil also stands out for its dry texture and ability to penetrate the epidermis both easily and deeply. Protective and softening, it represents a privileged natural cosmetic treatment for dry to very dry, sensitive or irritated skins.

This oil is equally famous for its effects on hair by moisturizing, nourishing and protecting it without greasing it. More specifically, the Brazil Nut carrier oil ideally suits dry, dull, thin or brittle hair, which will be gently conditioned and strengthened after repeated applications.  

Main properties: Moisturizing, nourishing, protective, emollient, antioxidant, soothing, revitalizing.

With a dry texture and easily penetrating the epidermis, this oil is ideal for dry to very dry, delicate, irritated or mature skin types, as well as dry, thin or brittle hair and either split or damaged ends.
