Amazing Benefits of Cacay Oil

Updated: Apr 2


Cacay oil is made from the Cacay nut, which grows in the Amazon regions of South America. It is the richest source of linoleic acid and has 50% more vitamin E and twice the amount of linoleic acid of Argan oil. In addition, Cacay oil is extremely rich in natural retinol and has three times more retinol than Rosehip oil.


Benefits to the Skin

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant and an amazing nutrient that locks in hydration and helps reduce any visible scarring. Linoleic acid is known for its ability to heal, hydrate and plump the skin, leaving the skin feeling smooth and non-greasy.
