Farm Fresh: Get To Know Sustainably-Sourced Buriti Oil in CLEAN RESERVE Buriti Balancing Cleanser & Soothing Moisturizer

Welcome to our sustainable fragrance series Farm Fresh, where we explore the eco-conscious ingredients used in our CLEAN RESERVE and CLEAN RESERVE Avant Garden fragrances and share how we give back to our farmers. In addition to supporting the farmers and their communities, we’re committed to crafting products with the safest ingredients, avoiding anything that may be potentially linked to health or environmental issues (see our No-To list).

First, it’s important to truly understand what “sustainable” means.

Here’s how we define it: 

  1. Responsibly sourced and doesn’t deplete the planet’s natural resources.

  2. Gives back to the farmers and their communities.

  3. Maintains an eco-conscious life cycle, from green manufacturing to recyclable packaging.

Meet Buriti Oil

Buriti Oil is extracted from the fruits of the moriche palm tree, a plant that grows in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil. Buriti Oil is a key moisturizing ingredient in our vegan skincare staples CLEAN RESERVE Buriti Balancing Cleanser and Buriti Soothing Moisturizer as it helps to replenish moisture, prevent further hydration loss, and strengthen the skin barrier.

To create these instant skincare favorites, we sustainably-sourced Buriti Oil from Brazil. The partnerships we’ve established there help improve the lives of the farmers and their communities who responsibly cultivate and harvest this ingredient.

5 Fun Facts

  1. Buriti Oil is one of the world’s richest sources of beta-carotene, a compound that the body converts into vitamin A, also called retinol. Retinol has been shown to boost collagen and help fade pigmentation.

  2. Buriti oil is also rich in unsaturated fatty acids and contains vitamins E and A. These ingredients can rebuild, moisturize, and rehydrate skin cells.

  3. It has a vivid, orange-reddish color!

  4. Unrefined Buriti Oil has a complex woody and fruity aroma.

  5. As well as Buriti Oil, the moriche palm fruits are used to make juice, jam, ice cream, and fermented wine.
