Vegetable oils: source of nutrients and protection of life

The raw materials (oils, vegetable butters and other products) used in the Amazonian Memories range come from small producers. They come from different regions of the Amazon basin. They possess diversified and complementary properties with beneficial effects for the skin and the organism known by local populations and confirmed by scientific analyses.

 

The varied range of oils and butters used meets the needs of all skin types: hydration, cellular regeneration and nutrition, balance of pigmentation, regulation of adipose secretions, softening, exfoliating.

These natural oils come from Amazonian producers who respect the principles of fair trade.

In nature, vegetable oils are stored in the seeds where they wrap the DNA. They provide energy, nutrients and vitamins essential for harmonious and healthy cell development.

While some oils are consumed orally, most can be absorbed through the skin, giving the body their benefits.
