Highly praised for its anti-aging results. Like pequi fruit, buriti oil is an excellent source of beta-carotene, a natural antioxidant, as well as vitamins E and A. This makes it a natural emollient, and an extremely effective choice for improving the appearance of brown spots, scars, and sun damage.
Ambrosia do Cerrado Liquid Moisturizer
Charged with unrefined, whole-food nutrients from the superfood buriti, pequi, and moringa oils.
Ambrosia do Cerrado Liquid Moisturizer is an irresistible guava-plus-citrus scent that feels like applying yellow dewdrops that are fully charged with unrefined, whole-food (not isolated or factory-produced “nature identical”) nutrients from the superfood buriti, pequi, and moringa oils.
As a brightening product, it contains no essential oils and, hence, is suitable for sensitive and sensitized skin.
The idea was to create a formula that would be truly nourishing, yet ultralight and breathable. To deliver lots of moisture without a waxy or overly emollient feel. This format of Ambrosia do Cerrado Liquid Moisturizer is very appealing for the times when the skin is dehydrated but you don't want heavy oils or emulsions (lotion or cream) on your face. By light, we don’t mean “just a little bit effective”; this moisturizer is highly effective in what it is designed to do. You will be amazed by how much, and how quickly, your skin can absorb in each single application.
The Portuguese name for this product is intended to draw attention to the Cerrado area in Brazil, as this beautiful savanna is biologically considered the richest savanna in the world by the Word Wide Fund of Nature. Earthwise Beauty wants to shine a spotlight on areas of the world that are overlooked, insufficiently known about by the Western world, and need our attention to protect their natural environment and biodiversity.To support the indigenous populations of these regions so that their livelihoods will be rewarded and appreciated, and their culture will be respected and protected.
To that end, they choose fair trade ingredients from these regions, extracted sustainably by small cooperatives. Using their traditional tools of choice, and some of their product names and designs to provoke customer's curiosity about these areas, their natural bounty, and their peoples.
The ingredients that make a difference
Nutrient-rich powerhouse, moringa is an especially hydrating oil that also delivers an incredible range of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients (too many to list all of them here, but for starters, it contains beta-carotenes, several B vitamins, selenium, and zinc).
This unique, extract-like oil from the Cerrado savanna in Brazil is rich in vitamin C, beta-carotene (which the body converts to vitamin A), and vitamins B1 and B2, all of which promote firm, supple, even-toned skin. The high vitamin C content makes pequi fruit oil a top choice for lightening skin discolorations as well as encouraging a brighter, more vibrant, youthful-looking complexion.
