Each fruit has one to five brown seeds from where oil and meal protein can be extracted. This oil, almost black in color, is considered a "miracle oil" in the Amazon region and is used as an anti-inflammatory for arthritis, as well as for treating skin diseases such as herpes and eczema. The presence of palmitoleic, a fatty acid, gives Bacuri butter its rich, emollient and moisturizing properties. The oil is also rich in palmitic and oleic fatty acids, as well as in proteins, lipids, glycerides, calcium, phosphorus, iron, vitamins A and B, niacin and amino acids lysine, methionine and threonine. Lysine, which has been proven to be beneficial for treating eczema and herpes simplex infections, is also essential in the cross-link formation that stabilizes the production of collagen and elastin, as well as healing wounds and sports injuries. Methionine is an essential amino acid and the body’s primary source of sulfur. The body uses sulfur to nourish and strengthen hair follicles and promote healthy hair, skin, and nail growth. Threonine, on the other hand, is needed to create glycine and serine, two amino acids that are necessary for the production of collagen, elastin, and muscle tissue. The Buriti (Mauritia flexuosa) Palm, which has its name derived from the Tupi-Guarani meaning "that which contains water” is abundant in the Amazon region especially in the Brazilian states of Pará and Amazonas. The Buriti fruit is oval, like a hen's egg, measures approximately 2 to 3 in in diameter and weighs 1 ½ to 2 oz. Buriti oil, extracted from the edible pulp, is one of the richest sources of pro-vitamin A (β-carotene) among all known fruits. The oil is widely used by the natives as a way to alleviate sunburn. Beta-carotene and its breakdown product, vitamin A, collectively referred as carotenoids, are two of the most important antioxidants because it protects the skin against the damaging effects of sunlight. It also neutralizes free radicals, repairing the damage caused by lack of moisture in sunexposed skin, fostering the production of collagen and elastin, keys for youthful, glowing skin.

Botanists believe that Cacau (Theobroma cacao) is originated from the headwaters of the Amazon River. Theobroma is derived from Greek for "the food of the gods". Chocolate liquor (cocoa liquor) is pure chocolate in its liquid form. Cocoa Butter contains natural antioxidant Vitamin E among other vitamins and minerals. It is readily absorbed into the skin bringing immediate relief to dry and irritated skin, soothing and hydrating improving skin synthesis of collagen which helps preventing wrinkles and other signs of aging. It is also rich in polyphenol which inhibits the production of the immune globulin being a natural remedy for dermatitis. Theobromine, the bitter alkaloid of the cacao beans has been used for centuries for the treatment of edemas, arteriosclerosis among other vascular disorders as well as for preventing and treat stretch marks during pregnancy and weigh control programs.

Castanha do Pará (Brazil nut)( Bertholletia excelsa), one of the most known Amazonian plants, is a rich source of selenium, a mineral that prevents cell degeneration, because it involves the cell membrane and protects the immune system. It also contains alpha-linolenic acid, linoleic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid, calcium, cerium, cesium, sterols, ether stearin, iron, phosphorus, iodine, proteins and vitamin B with antioxidant, emollient, energizing and moisturizing properties. Copaíba( Copaífera Officinalis) oil, or balsam, is extracted from the Copaíba tree where the oleoresin accumulates in cavities within the tree trunk. It is harvested drilling holes into the tree and collecting the resin that drips out. Research shows that copaiba has diuretic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, expectorant, disinfectant and stimulant properties and is the best known natural source of caryophyllene, a well known plant chemical that has documented strong anti-inflammatory effects. The balsam has been used topically by indigenous tribes as a wound healer, to stop bleeding, for skin disorders and for all types of pain and to reduce inflammation. Today Copaíba balsam is vastly used in cosmetic preparations for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and emollient (soothing and softening) properties.

Indigenous people, as well as local communities along the Amazon, have used Cupuaçu (Theobroma grandiflorum) for generations. The butter of fruit’s seeds contains a semi-solid triglyceride that helps increase skin hydration and reduce transepidermal water loss. It also contains phytosterols (they exert antiinflammatory action in the skin by acting as free radical scavengers), essential fatty acids omegas 3 and 6, and the antioxidant vitamins A and C. Due to its capacity for water absorption and the ability to obstruct the evaporation of moisture from the skin Cupuaçu butter has high moisturizing properties, helping restore the skin's natural humidity and elasticity. The Guaraná (Paullinia cupana) fruit, used for centuries by the Indian tribes in the Amazon, only recently had its medicinal properties validated by the scientific community. The word “Guaraná” comes from the indigenous term "Varana," which means “tree that backed up in another.” The tree is very common in the Brazilian Amazon. The small, round, brightred fruit grows in clusters and splits in two parts from where a black seed surrounded by a white pulp appears which reminds an open eye. Considered one of the richest sources of caffeine, yielding twice as much caffeine as coffee beans, the fruit also contains large quantities of alkaloids, terpenes, flavonoids, starch, proteins, sugars, starch, tannin, potassium, phosphorus, iron, calcium, thiamine and vitamin A. Guaraná has been known worldwide as a natural remedy for all sorts of maladies due to its stimulant, analgesic, antibacterial, antioxidant and vasodilator properties among others. The Maracujá (Passion Fruit) (Passiflora edulis flavicarpa) fruit seed oil, which has a fresh, pleasant citric fragrance, with a bright translucid yellow color, contains 70% in linoleic acid, which supports the skin barrier function by helping to control transepidermal water loss, restoring the lipid layer of the skin, improving moisture and leaving the skin silky and soft. The Maracujá fruit, flower and leaves have been medicinally used for generations as a natural sedative, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-spasmodic remedy. It is also a great source of vitamin C, calcium, iron and phosphorus. The oil’s relaxing aromatic substance called passiflorine has relaxing, soothing and nourishing properties, reducing anxiety, stress and fatigue and inducing and improving sleep. The fruits of the Murumuru (Astrocarium murumuru) palm tree have two parts—pulp and seeds—from which it is possible to obtain crude oils and fats by cold extraction. Its high content of Vitamin A and oleic and linoleic acids, help to counteract harmful environmental factors that prematurely age skin. Murumuru butter works beneath the skin’s surface to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity. It is also a powerful skin barrier repair agent and an intense natural moisturizer.

The Patauá (Oenocarpus bataua) palm, remarkably rich in α-tocopherol, is widely used throughout the Amazon basin. Indigenous peoples have been using the Patauá oil for centuries. This palm has many uses in indigenous medicine. Pure or mixed with honey and lemon Patauá oil is used for treating minor bronchial and pulmonary infections. The light green/yellow oil extracted from the fruit’s pulp and its kernel by crushing and pressing, has a chemical composition very similar to that of olive oil, making the product being know as the olive oil of the rainforest. Patauá oil contains a great amount of Omega 3 and 6 amino acids, which actively regenerate the skin cells, bringing rapid curative effect to dry, aged and cracked skin. It also fortifies the scalp and restores the shine of the hair.

Pracaxi or Pracachy(Pentaclethra filamentosa) is an extraordinary oil with several cosmetic, therapeutic and medicinal properties. The oil, with strong antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antiseptic, anti hemorrhagic and insecticidal properties extracted from the pea pod of the Pracaxi tree has been used for generations of Amazonian people to effectively treat erysipelas. Due to its high concentration of phenols with anti hemorrhagic and the ability of speeding cellular renewal, Pracaxi oil is vastly used by rural doctors through the Amazon to treat skin disorders such as severe acne, rosacea and psoriasis. It’s also good to heal burns, cuts and wounds. The oil is reported also to improve the appearance of stretch marks and to help prevent the formation of new ones. When it comes to hair and scalp the oil is good in controlling dandruff and other scalp’s ailments as well as controlling hair loss. Rosa Mosqueta (Rosehip)(Rosa canina) is a dense deciduous shrub with the stems bearing numerous hooked prickles. The foliage, which grows wild in the southern Andes, has a strong apple-like fragrance. The flowers are pink with a white base and yellow stamens. They bloom from late spring to mid summer. The fruit contains a high concentration of Retinol (Vitamin A) and Vitamin C. The oil has been used for a variety of skin disorders including scars from acne, burns and surgery, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and age spots. It’s also good for hyper-pigmentation, smoothing wrinkles, repairing sun damage and hyper-pigmentation. Rosehip seed’s oil is also an excellent moisturizer.

There are two species of Tucumã trees in the Amazon: Tucumã-do-Pará (Astrocaryum vulgare) and the Tucumã-do-Amazonas (Astrocaryum tucuma). Both grow fruits with an orange oily pulp that yields 14% to 16% oil when it is raw and a kernel from which a white oil is extracted. The fruit, consumed raw or in the form of a juice called "wine of tucumã,” or still mixed with water or made into an ice cream, is very nutritious containing one of the highest concentrations of provitamin A beta-carotene (52 milligrams per 100 g pulp) in any fruit, equaling the value found in the pulp of the buriti and higher than that of beta carotene found in carrots is (6.6 milligrams/100 g pulp). The butter of Tucumã is quickly absorbed by the skin leaving it velvety and smooth. Ucuúba (Virola sebifera) butter has been used by the Amazonian people for treating severe skin disorders. The nourishing Ucuúba butter contains 42,2% in palmitic and oleic acids, which are able to penetrate the deep layers of the skin. It also contains small amounts of myristic acids and is gentle enough for dry, sensitive or damaged skin. Iron and vitamin C are some other ingredients. These substances help control and normalize oily skin conditions, stabilizing the production of natural lubricants, and gently moisturizing while the essential oils restore and smooth the skin. Urucum (Bixa orellana) has been used in many different ways over the centuries, including as food dye, body paint, treatment for heartburn and stomach distress, as well as sun screen and insect repellent. The fat soluble part of the crude extract is called bixin, the water soluble part is known as norbixin. This is the same substance found in annatto seed, which is listed as a color additive and is considered a natural coloring for food. Urucum is rich in carotenoid, flavonoids, diterpenes, fatty acids, sugars, calcium, iron, potassium, proteins, vitamins A, B2 e C. The powder of the seeds, the roots and leaves has been used for centuries as astringent, antibiotic, antihemorrhagic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, bactericidal, wound healing, emollient and stimulant. Also used as insect repellent and for treating skin injuries, burns and for relieving inflammation.

A few words About Us AmazonDrops is Amazon Oil Industry’s youngest sister company. Amazon Oil was founded 25 years ago in Belém do Pará, in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest. Committed to provide alternative income to indigenous communities in the Brazilian Amazon the company has been leading an effort to prevent the cutting of trees to be sold as timber. For this it has partnered with local government and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) involved in sustainable development to create the project Cada Gota Salva uma Árvore - Each Drop Saves a Tree. The project consists in providing equipment and technical and organizational training to small farmers organized in cooperatives and associations, which enables them to harvest plants (leaves, flowers, seeds and nuts) throughout the Brazilian Amazon. This work has been an effective way of enabling entire communities and indigenous tribes to profit from their knowledge of the forest resources. The elimination of the middleman has been a key factor in enabling the practice of Fair Trade and guaranteeing that farmers and indigenous peoples keep their traditional role of Guardians of the Forest. AmazonDrops products are made blending active ingredients of the forest according to ancient traditions and knowledge, handled in a way that maintains the integrity of all active ingredients. They preserve the quality of the indigenous traditional holistic medicine in which all parts of life are interconnected. According to this view, the forest appears as part of an extended social system in which plants, animals, spirits and even minerals interact with the human being. AmazonDrops products are made to be: Good for the Body: AmazonDrops products are 100% natural. The botanicals used in our products grow and are wild harvested in the Amazon Rainforest and they are handled in a way that the integrity of their phytonutrients as found on the trees is preserved. No synthetics/chemicals are added at either the extraction process or in the final product. The effectiveness of these botanicals has been proved for generations of indigenous people who live inside the Amazon Rainforest, when dealing with their health challenges. Good for the Soul: 100% Fair Trade. All raw material used on AmazonDrops products is sustainable and community traded from several small farmers who live inside the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest and depend on the forest for their survival. Supported and encouraged by our company, these farmers have joined together in associations as a way to empower themselves against deforestation. This partnership has been generating alternative income and enabling thousands of indigenous peoples on the Amazon Rainforest to fairly profit from their vast knowledge of the forest resources. Good for the Planet: 100% of the trees that grow the seeds used to make AmazonDrops products have been saved from being cut down for the timber, which is helping to preserve the Amazon Rainforest - “The Lung of the World”. Teaching indigenous communities in the Amazon that they can benefit themselves by trading non-timber forest resources, such as seeds, nuts and leaves instead of cutting down the trees for the timber, has been one of the best and effective ways of encouraging environment preservation, saving the Amazon Rainforest for future generations.
