Cacay Oil’s collagen boosting and wrinkle tackling benefits are thanks to its high concentration of natural retinol, containing up to three times more than the often-mentioned Rosehip Seed Oil. This oil is absorbed quickly and deeply into your skin, allowing the vitamin E fight free radicals on your skin while the B-Sitosterol digs down deep to encourage even more collagen production. With a light texture and highly concentrated nourishing benefits, Cacay is such a heavy hitter that even in small quantities it will make a difference in your skincare routine.
Cacay (Caryodendron Orinocense Seed Oil) is traditionally grown in the wild, and is increasingly being cultivated on plantations. Our cacay oil is wildcrafted in Brazil, meaning it is harvested from nuts that have fallen off the tree once fully ripened. Similar to coconuts, every part of the cacay nut is able to be used, once the oil is pressed from the nuts, various pieces of the nuts are used as flour, animal feed, and charcoal. Our oil is a cold pressed virgin oil, meaning no heat is applied to it during the extraction process, limiting the potential for the delicate properties to be impacted or damaged.
Linoleic Acid makes up a majority of cacay oil’s composition and works to strengthen your skin barrier and capillaries, limits water loss, and fights the collagen loss that can lead to wrinkles
Oleic Acid – this deeply moisturizing Omega 9 supports the efforts of the other oil components by creating a natural barrier on your skin and has been shown to encourage absorption of your skincare layered underneath
Cacay seed oil contains palmitic acid and is rich in vitamin E, these potent anti-aging components address signs of aging skin, such as wrinkles and UV damage
Natural Retinol – renowned for its ability to slow the signs of aging, encourage collagen productions, and stimulate new cell growth and turnover. Contains up to three times more natural retinol than the well known rosehip seed oil.
Antioxidants – help your body to heal and repair by fighting the free radicals that cause cell damage, this damage can lead to diminished collagen production and wrinkles
Rich in B-Sitosterol – studies show this plant phytosterol encourages the production of new collagen while also limiting the collagen diminishing affects of the sun
The following depicts the majority proportions of the chemical composition of cacay oil, slight variances will occur based the unique makeup of each batch produced. When God creates something in nature, He does not stick to a perfect formula.
