Sacha Inchi oil from the Amazonian Rainforest in Peru is produced from the star shaped organic grown fruit of Plukenetia volubilis. The fruit seeds are known as Inca Peanuts and have been cultivated and consumed by the indigenous people of Peru for centuries. The dry roasted seeds are one of the richest natural sources of omega fatty acids in the world.
Cold pressed Sacha Inchi seeds produce a skin nutrient oil high in tocopherols with a unique balance of Omega fatty acids 3, 6, 9 and rich in vitamins A & E. Sacha Inchi oil is a highly moisturizing organic oil especially beneficial with dry scaly skin and noted to relieve irritated and itchy skin conditions. Sacha Inchi is particularly beneficial for skin, hair and nail care because it is low in saturated fatty acids and rapidly absorbed with no oily residue and is considered non comedogenic (will not clog pores).
