DESCRIPTION

The Cacay tree grows wild along the Andes mountains in Venezuela, Ecuador, and Colombia. The tree produces highly nutritious nuts, the oil from which is used for cooking as well as for skin care.

Cacay oil has recently been touted as the new 'miracle' oil in skin care. It is easily absorbed into the skin and rich in Vitamins A, E, and retinol. It is believed to contain three times more retinol than other popular anti-ageing oils including Rosehip, and 50 percent more Vitamin E and linoeic acid than Argan oil.

    I have oily sensitive skin on my face, with occasional dry patches just to be annoying! I have been making my own facial serum for several years now in place of commercial moisturisers, which irritate and cause my skin to break out. I have been using Cacay oil for almost a week now, and could feel a difference immediately. This oil absorbs almost instantly and doesn't leave my oily face feeling greasy. My skin and lips feel hydrated and plump, and so far no breakouts. This stuff is amazing.

    I have been using this oil at night for the past 3 weeks and I am already impressed. I can see an improvement in my skin tone. My skin looks plump and hydrated in the morning. I have oily skin and this sinks in amd absorbs nicely with no breakouts
