Buriti (Mauritia flexuosa) is an Amazonian palm tree that produces a fruit that contains an oil that has been used for thousands of years to add moisture and shine to hair. The Brazilians know the buriti tree as the “Tree of Life” because of its antiageing properties.
Buriti oil is extracted from the fruit of its tree, then ground and cold pressed so that the oil preserves its valuable nutrients. Buriti oil is actually the richest source of beta-carotene, which causes its reddish brown or golden color.
