Beraca is launching a multifunctional insect repellent base that is said to be the ideal combination of technology and natural ingredients. This creamy, light texture, smooth and fragrance-free base formulation contains Andiroba oil, which has showed a 6-hour efficacy in repellency against mosquito vectors of tropical diseases. The andiroba seed oil also brings a prolonged 12-hour hydration, guaranteeing the sensation of softness in the skin, avoiding the undesirable sensation of dryness. With this perfect union, Beraca (stand D58) has named its multi-functional insect repellent base, ready to be used as RAS - Andiroba Repellent Active System. 

With numerous cosmetic properties, Andiroba oil, native to the Amazon, has anti-inflammatory, emollient and moisturizing properties that nourish the skin. Moreover, it is important to highlight that the Andiroba seeds are collected on the beaches of rivers in the Amazon by local harvesting communities, which makes this ingredient a sustainable source of living and preservation, promoting the increase of income for these families, and the concept that the Forest is worth more standing than cut. 

Furthermore, RAS formulation base has no parabens, fragrances or colorings, making it versatile for the chemists to use in the lab.
