One of the key ingredients in many of ISUN’s skincare products is buriti fruit oil. Buriti oil from the Amazon Rainforest is a product of the buriti palm tree, also known as the Moriche palm (Mauritia flexuosa).
The oil extracted from the buriti fruit is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, and beta-carotene. In fact, buriti oil is the richest known source of beta-carotene - even more than carrot seed oil. It deeply moisturises the skin, is teeming with antioxidants and therefore works as a natural sunscreen.
Buriti oil is exceptionally rich in:
Beta-carotene - A powerful antioxidant which protects the skin against environmental and sun damage.
Essential fatty acids - stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, tightening and firming the skin keeping it supple and deeply moisturised.
Vitamin C - Buriti oil is a good source of Vitamin C and together with vitamin E protects against free radicals and boosts the collagen production in skin.
In addition to these benefits, buriti sparks a natural anti-inflammatory reaction that tames redness, soothes sensitive skin, and calms skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Buriti oil also shields the skin from potentially damaging UVA and UVB rays, making it the perfect ingredient and an all-natural choice for UV protection.
Known to the natives as "the tree of life", buriti deeply softens the skin reducing fine lines and wrinkles and gives the skin a healthy, radiant glow.
