Buriti Oil, also referred to by the botanical name Mauritia flexuosa, is cold-pressed extracted from the pulp of the buriti plant, a member of the palm tree family. Virgin buriti oil carries a vibrant characteristic orange-red color due to its natural high concentration of beta-carotene content. This buriti oil is completely unrefined and has an earthy to woodsy aroma.
Buriti oil is a favorable ingredient throughout the cosmetic and personal-care industries, sought after by formulators for topical skin and haircare applications. Its natural emollient properties make it an ideal additive in various moisturizing products such as lip balms, face creams, body lotions, and serums. Due to its high content of beta-carotene in addition to being rich in palmitic, linoleic, and arachidic acids, Buriti oil is known to carry antioxidant activity and benefits to end-products. This ingredient is commonly found in topical products intended to help protect the skin from sun-damage.
