Wild Buriti Oil (Aguaje Oil) for Sun Damaged Skin


PRODUCT: 100% pure Buriti Oil (Mauritia Flexuosa). Also known as Aguaje Oil. 30ml / 1 fl oz

PROFILE: Buriti oil has a very unique profile and intense orange colour. It is the world’s richest natural source of beta-carotene (Vitamin A / Retinol), exceeding carrot seed oil. Buriti oil rebuilds and hydrates skin cells and protects natural collagen and elastin while restoring moisture to sun-damaged skin. It has a rich amber color such that can be used as a natural bronzer and studies have shown effectiveness as a natural sunblock.

PROCESS: Cold-pressed and bottled by Candela Peru. Imported and distributed in the USA and Canada exclusively by Arbor Mundi.

SUSTAINABILITY: Wild-harvested in the Peruvian Amazon and USDA Certified Organic.  Purchasing Aguaje helps protect the Amazon by demonstrating the economic value of standing forests.

PRECAUTIONS: Avoid contact with light clothing due to the high beta-carotene content as it can stain. Aguaje fruits are known as the fruit of life and contain substantial phyto-estrogens. They are particularly popular for women to eat in the Amazon region for concentrated vitamins, to help balance hormones and support a feminine body shape. Due to the phyto-estrogens, we recommend against using Aguaje Oil if you are pregnant until more conclusive research is undertaken. That being said, there are many far more suspect ingredients in widely used chemical cosmetic products that should carry warning labels, particularly for pregnant women, but do not.


For sun damaged or mature skin.

1 review for Wild Buriti Oil (Aguaje Oil) for Sun Damaged Skin

  1. Anna

    This oil is such a special find. Arbor Mundi’s Buriti oil is thick, rich, and beautifully red/orange in color. It has a woodsy, interesting smell. I’m 23 and have acne-prone skin, so I use it as a couple of times per month as a natural preventative treatment for aging (an introductory treatment to Retinol). I also use it as a body oil every night before bed. Overall, this oil is nourishing for all skin– great for healing and moisturizing. Highly recommend!
