All About Amazonian Oils!
Does your skincare contain amazonian oils? These gorgeous oils are sourced from the amazon and contain so many benefits for your skin, hair and body! Read on to find out my top picks!
The Amazonian jungle is uniquely rich and diverse, with the women of the Amazon having long possessed the secret to beautiful hair and skin. Just as we saw Argan nut oil from Morocco sweep the cosmetic industry for a few years, the brilliant virgin fruits and seeds of the Amazon jungle may yield the next big cosmetic trend. These rare cold pressed oils and butters contain essential fatty acids, sterols and amino acids for conditioning and revitalising hair whilst regenerating skin at a cellular level.
Dr Alkatis Ageless Elixir and Pollen Botanicals 7 Wonders Oil recently added to our shelves alongside Rahua hair and body care include some of these astonishing rainforest oils!
The women of the Quehua-Shuar tribe in South America have a documented history of using Ungurahui oil to nourish and condition the scalp. More recently however, it has been heralded for saturating and strengthening the hair's cortex!
Pracaxi oil has high levels of behenic acid that makes hair soft and shiny. It is also proven to be beneficial in reducing stretch marks and skin discolouration!
Andiroba oil is rich in alpha-hydroxyl acids and promotes healthy curly hair without leaving a greasy feel. Andiroba reduces wrinkles, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation of the skin.
Sacha Inchi has been cultivated in the Amazon for 3,000 years and is an incredible source of omega-3, 6 and 9. Sacha Inchi also encourages hair growth and may help prevent split ends!
Which products on Nourished Life contain Amazonian Oils?

Rahua partners with women from Amazonian nations such as Waorani, Achuar, Quichua, Quechua and Shuar tribes to source and process their ungurahua oil. The Rahua (ra-wa) name is derived from a rare Ungurahua nut, found in the Amazon Rainforest which acts as a potent treatment that is highly effective for helping dry and damaged hair.
