Inspired by the natural wonders of the Amazon rainforest, this sumptuous facial oil by Oilixia features retinol rich Cacay oil. The Cacay oil is cold-pressed from the nuts of the Amazonian Cacay Tree which boasts three times more retinol than Rosehip oil, twice the vitamin F and 50% more vitamin E than Argan oil. Sustainably sourced from Colombia, its production helps to support local families and reforestation programmes.

Amazonian Cacay oil is then blended with treasured South American discoveries: antioxidant Acai oil with vitamin E, nourishing Amazonian Lily extract, selenium rich Brazil nut oil and Buriti oil that’s loaded with beta-carotene. All work in harmony to promote surface skin cell renewal whilst replenishing the skin.

Your skin will love the light, silky texture that absorbs instantly, leaving skin with a lit-from-within, natural glow.

Ideal for normal to dry skin, use in the evening or during the colder months of the year.

Product feel: a richer feeling oil which deeply nourishes and penetrates skin where it is needed most.

Product packaging: recyclable glass container, glass pipette with plastic lid (check local options)

Sharmila's review - Amazonian Cacay Facial Oil

“As someone who has always suffered from oily skin and is prone to break outs and adult acne I have steered clear of facial oils, so I was intrigued to see both how this felt and what effect it would have on my skin’s oil production.

Initially I was happy to see that it came in a pretty little glass bottle with a glass pipette (eco friendly) and it also felt quite Alice in Wonderland. You use the pipette to apply just 2 or 3 drops to your hands and massage in to your face. This is potent stuff so make sure you use it sparingly.

If you like floral scents then the Amazonian Lily extract will most definitely appeal to your senses. It certainly packs a punch and is a little too strong for my liking but two of my massage clients really loved it when mixed with my fragrance free carrier gel as the scent was more subtle.

On my skin type I found that it was enough to use it at night only and to really massage it in after cleansing and toning.  It is a rich oil rather than a dry oil and is super nourishing so would be great for after-sun or people with dry or normal skin types.”
