Getting your skincare routine just right can seem like an exhausting task. Just when you think you’ve found the perfect way to manage your skin, the weather changes and you require a whole different set of products to keep it under control.
Luckily, Cacay Oil is the tried and tested skincare product that works no matter what skin type you are, all year round.
1 Provides deep nourishment
Cacay Oil increases skin’s hydration and helps it stay nourished in the summer heat and winter cold. Because it’s easily absorbed into your pores, it means you aren’t left with a greasy residue, as you might be if you use coconut oil.
It’s long-lasting hydration benefits means you won’t just be moisturising for the day ahead, you’ll help keep your skin moisturised on a long term basis – so those days when you decide to go make up free are no problem.
2 A natural source of Vitamin A and E
As a natural source of Vitamin A, Cacay Oil helps encourage skin cell production. This helps keep your skin firm and healthy – and also reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Cacay Oil also contains Vitamin E, which improves skins elasticity. Vitamin E helps protect your skin cells from free radicals, which cause damage and speed up the aging process.
3 Stimulates collagen
Collagen is hugely important for the formation of new cells and in replacing dead skin cells. As we get older we naturally produce less collagen and as a result, fewer fibroblasts, which are where new cells are produced.
Cacay Oil’s deeply nourishing nature means it is absorbed into the different layers of skin, helping to stimulate collagen production and keep your skin looking and feeling younger.
4 Protects skin
The hydrolipidic layer of our skin is made up of sebum, lipids and sweat. While it may not sound like an attractive makeup, it’s important in keeping your skin protected and free from allergies, infections and irritations.
Cacay Oil is great at assisting the repair of the hydrolipidic layer of skin, which with continued soap washes can become damaged and reduced.
5 It’s full of Linoleic Acid
Linoleic Acid is an essential fatty acid which has helped Argan Oil become a firm favourite amongst skin care fanatics. The only difference is that Cacay Oil provides twice as much Linoleic Acid as Argan Oil.
Linoleic Acid is one of the primary components that make up the outer membrane of healthy skin cells, and therefore keeps skin nourished and protected. As we don’t synthesis this ourselves, the only we can keep it topped up is through application or diet.
6 Helps fade scars and stretch marks
Cacay Oil is filled with vitamins and essential fatty acids, both of which help aid skin regeneration. As a result that makes it perfect for use on scars from previous acne and stretch marks you’d like to see fade.
All you need to do is massage a drop on the area as part of your daily skin care routine. After a while you’ll begin to see a noticeable difference as your scars and/or stretch marks begin to fade.
7 Improves the lives of low-income families
If all these health and beauty benefits weren’t enough to sway you, it’s worth noting that Cacay Oil is helping low-income families. The cultivation of Cacay trees and harvesting of Cacay nuts are improving the lives of low-income families in regions of South America. These families would usually rely on raising livestock or growing and selling crops for a very modest living. By gathering Cacay nuts, they are able to gain an extra income, with some families even growing their own trees to harvest.
8 Cacay Oil helps save rainforests
By choosing to buy Cacay Oil, you’re directly helping to save the Amazon’s rainforests. Every day over 200,000 acres of rainforest are destroyed in what’s been described as an ‘environmental catastrophe’. The rise in popularity of Cacay Oil has meant that people who were harvesting these fast-growing trees for wood are now financially motivated to leave the rainforest and harvest the nuts of Cacay trees instead.
As well as this, the company responsible for the rise in Cacay Oil has planted Cacay trees in deforested areas.
