Cacay is the newest oil to be sold by Mystic Moments. It is becoming very popular in anti-ageing skincare because of its fantastic properties! It is loaded with Vitamin A and E along with lineic acid, which all help to reverse the signs of ageing.
Its botanical name is Caryodendron Orinocense Seed Oil and is expressed from the seeds of the Cacay plant. Once the oil is extracted not a lot goes to waste, as all the other parts are used to make flour, animal feed and used to help build fires.
Cacay Oil is extremely rich in Vitamin A (even more so than Rose Hip Oil), Linoleic Acid (higher content than Argan Oil) and Vitamin E (double that in Argan Oil), making it the latest “miracle” oil. Being so rich in skin nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids Cacay is currently considered the champion of anti-ageing skincare while it’s skin rejuvenation properties makes it perfect for the use in treating scars, stretch marks and blemishes. It can be added to shampoo or conditioner as it is also great to nourish the hair and scalp, leaving your hair soft, shiny and healthy. It can be used on its own or added to your daily moisturiser.
Not only is Cacay great for health and beauty but it is also helping to improve the lives of families living in the Amazon regions. Families are gathering the nuts which have fallen from trees or planting their own trees to harvest and sell the nuts. While at present this is only a small supplement to their income, as popularity of this oil increases so will their income.
After the oil has been extracted from the Cacay nut the nutrient-rich meat is ground into flour, the inner peel is added to cattle feed or used as a fertilizer and the outer shell burns extremely hot so is ideal for heating purposes where very high temperatures are needed.
