Cacay Seed Oil

Description – Cacay oil, pronounced ‘kahk-ai’, is wild harvested in the Columbian jungle and the nut itself looks a bit like a walnut. The slow growing tree captures CO2, enhances the soil and helps in watershed renewal, making it a very environmentally sound product. It also generates an income for over 200 families. Truly a super-oil, it has 50% more Vitamin E and double the linoleic acid of Argan. It also has 3 times more retinol than rosehip.
