Pentaclethra macroloba

  • History

    Pracaxi (or pracachy) grows naturally in Amazonia and, like all legumes, its roots are able to "fix" nitrogen. This particular characteristic enables it to regenerate easily in poor soil, while enriching the ground at the same time. It is often used in traditional medicine, especially to promote healing.

  • Location

    Pracaxi seeds used in vegetable oil come from Amazonia - Brazil

  • Cosmetic actions

    Pracaxi oil is popular for its skin-softening properties and for improving skin suppleness, and is also used as a hair conditioner. When keratins scales are tightly closed, hair is shinier and less prone to damage from combing. The hair also maintains its integrity, and insensible water loss is limited.
