Natural Sourcing Debuts Organic Brazil Nut Oil, Sacha Inchi Oil

March 5, 2014

Organic Brazil Nut Oil is a sought-after ingredient for spa, cosmetic and personal care formulations. Its nourishing, deeply hydrating nutrient profile—which includes fat-soluble vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids—is ideal for a wide range of applications, according to Natural Sourcing.

At Natural Sourcing, this oil is cold pressed from the nuts of the Brazil nut tree and then meticulously packaged and stored to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties. The nut oil is rich in nutrients, including vitamins A (retinol), B, C and E.

“Organic Brazil Nut Oil is growing in popularity as an ingredient for skin and hair care, thanks to its ability to nourish aging skin, protect the skin from moisture loss, and add shine to dry, damaged hair,” said Kibby Mitra, chief executive officer of Natural Sourcing. “This highly nutritive oil contains an array of fat-soluble vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Paired with its light texture and mild, sweet, nutty scent, Organic Brazil Nut Oil’s unique nutrient profile makes it a dynamic ingredient ideal for use in a wide variety of spa, skin, lip and hair care formulations.”

Due to its rapid absorption by the skin, it is especially suited for use in anti-aging creams, dry skin formulations, sensitive skin care, dry/damaged hair products and lip balms.

The company also recently rolled out sacha inchi oil, one of the most concentrated sources of plant-based Omega 3 essential fatty acids available, it says.

“Organic sacha inchi oil is a versatile and highly moisturizing ingredient,” said Mitra. “The light texture and mild, nutty scent of this highly penetrative oil make it especially suitable for inclusion in a wide range of personal care applications.”

Organic sacha inchi oil is pressed from the seeds of the Plukenetia Volubilis bush. The plant is native to the tropical rain forests of Central and South America, where indigenous people have cultivated it for centuries. It is especially suited for use in anti-aging creams, dry skin formulations, sensitive skin care, acne treatments, dry/damaged hair and scalp products, and nail and lip care.
