Buriti Oil Benefits
While buriti nuts originate in the rain forests of the Amazon, it has become an international phenomenon due to the benefits of buriti oil. Also known as Mauritia flexuosa, moriche palm, or ité palm, the buriti tree can be found throughout South America, in Central Brazil and the Southern Amazon basin.
The fruit itself is a shiny chestnut color and it has a bright yellow pulp inside. There is also an edible nut in the middle which can be used to make drinks, ice cream, preserves — and of course, beauty products.
From hair and skin to nails and general health, this antioxidant rich nut can help protect your body from damage in a number of ways. If you’re interested in how buriti oil benefits your skin, read on to learn more from the experts at YUNI Beauty.

Buriti Oil Benefits for Skin
Buriti oil has several beneficial ingredients that can have a powerful effect on your skin including antioxidant beta-carotene, essential fatty acids, vitamin E, and vitamin C.
Beta-carotene is a powerful antioxidant, and buriti oil is one of the richest known sources of it. It helps protect your skin from damage that occurs due to UV rays and free radicals.
Fatty acids are one of the prime ingredients that physically make your skin look better. You may experience more elasticity and firmness, as well as smoother, more supple skin. When applied in conjunction with other ingredients, fatty acids can also reduce redness and irritation.
Vitamin E also has antioxidant effects that protect skin from environmental damage and stressors. It minimizes the effects of aging including wrinkles and sagging skin.
Vitamin C contains an antioxidant called ascorbic acid that plays a big role in promoting collagen production for plump, smooth skin. It can also help reduce and reverse photodamage from UV rays.
