Product: Candela Peru 100% Pure Copaiba Balsam / Copaiba Oil / Copaiba Oleoresin (Copaifera paupera). Raw / Unrefined / Virgin. Wild-harvested. Non-destructively collected in the Peruvian Amazon unlike the vast majority of other brands in which the trees are cut down.
Profile: Copaiba is a tree that grows in tropical Amazon areas of South America, especially in Peru and Brazil and reaches between 20 to 30 meters of height. Candela Copaiba Balsam is collected through non-destructive harvesting (drilling a small hole and tapping the trunk), rather than chopping the tree down, which is the predominant harvest method.
Benefits and Uses: This tree produces Balsam / Oleoresin in its trunk that has long been used by indigenous communities due to its antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. As such, Copaiba Balsam is often recommended for reducing inflammation and severity of diaper rash, psoriasis, herpes, acne, dermatitis and fungi. Copaiba is also a natural astringent, which tightens skin, thus reducing wrinkles. This is raw, non steam-distilled product. (Steam distillation removes many of the useful components and fatty acids).
Quality: Candela Peru is a well-established producer of high-quality natural ingredients and supplies bulk product to some of the worlds largest cosmetics brands.
Sustainability: Wild-harvested in the Peruvian Amazon and USDA Certified Organic. Purchasing our Sustainably-sourced Copaiba Balsam helps protect forest in the Amazon by demonstrating the economic value of standing forests.
