Our Caiaué Oil, also known as Ojon Oil or Dendê Bravo Oil, is meticulously extracted through cold pressing from the nuts of the Elaeis oleifera tree, commonly referred to as the American Oil Palm. This palm tree is native to South and Central America, spanning from Honduras to northern Brazil. This extraordinary botanical moisturizer has gained immense popularity as a coveted ingredient for hair treatment.
Caiaué Oil boasts a distinctive fatty acid composition, abundant in omega-9 Oleic Acid, omega-6 Linoleic Acid, and an array of saturated fatty acids. Furthermore, it boasts one of the highest concentrations of Provitamin A (Carotenoids), predominantly in the form of Beta-Carotene and Alpha-Carotene, which give it its vibrant red hue.
Caiaué (Ojon) Oil deeply penetrates the skin to rejuvenate moisture levels, improve elasticity, stimulate collagen production, and alleviate dryness-induced cracks. It is also rich in antioxidants, effectively combating free radicals that cause age-related skin damage, resulting in issues such as dark spots, fine lines, and unwanted wrinkles. Its significant Linoleic Acid content reinforces the skin's protective barrier, aiding in the retention of natural moisture and preventing Trans-Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL). The oil's emollient properties, soothing characteristics, and its high vitamin and fatty acid content collectively benefit individuals with acne-prone skin.
Notably, Ojon Oil shares the same structural composition as hair Keratin among natural components. It is abundant in amino acids and natural antioxidants, offering protection against environmental factors like sun and pollution, thereby supporting hair health. Caiaué Oil is an effective solution for combating hair loss, functioning as a hair tonic for the treatment of dandruff. Elaeis Oleifera Oil is also recommended for use on chemically treated, damaged, or dry hair, either as an ingredient in hair care formulations or as an intensive treatment oil.
