Cold pressed Pequi Oil. The wonder ingredient from Brazil which can be used on its own as a body oil, but incorporates easily into other oil blends, balms, lotions and numerous other body and hair care formulations. It can also be used in soapmaking.

Pequi oil, Caryocar brasiliense, possesses a unique combination of essential fatty acids and is highly emollient. It is an effective skin moisturiser. Pequi can add shine and reduce frizz by smoothing hair cuticles when added to hair oils, conditioners, and serums. The oil is also useful in cases of brittle nails. A couple of drops will leave you hands feeling silky and soft.

 Pequi oil is also reported to have anti-fungal properties.

As well as having high levels of essential fatty acids it is also rich in Vitamin A.

This product contains no synthetic ingredients, no artificial preservative, no artificial fragrance. Our Pequi Oil is 100% Pure and Natural and therefore at room temperature it is quite normal for this oil to solidify. The oil has a very low melting point and therefore returning the oil to liquid state can take as little as one minute (see directions below).

Directions for use: If the oil is in clear liquid form shake well and then use as normal. If the oil is part or wholly solid. Gently warm the oil in warm water or move to warmer place. Wait until the oil completely liquefies and then shake before use. The oil can be applied neat to the skin or mixed with other essential or carrier oils. The oil can also be added to numerous body care product formulations. It is important to let the oil completely liquefy before use as the natural components separate at cooler temperatures. You need to be sure you are getting all the goodness the oil has to offer with every application.
