Pracaxi Oil

With about 15% behenic acid,
Pracaxi is the true Behenoil

The Pracaxi oil from SAMURIA is obtained exclusively by cold pressing. Pracaxi has the highest measured content of behenic acid and thus a high density of higher fatty acids.

Our Pracaxi seeds are collected wild in the depths of the Amazon rainforest. The indigenous communities have the ancient knowledge and know the places where the trees grow best in their original form. In self-woven baskets, the seeds are taken kilo to the village, where they are grown and pressed by hand. The Pracaxi oil from SAMURIA is 100%.

Specification of Pracaxi oil

Pracaxi (Pentaclethra macroloba) grows throughout the Amazon Rainforest. The tree forms elongated pods containing 4 to 8 seeds from which we extract the high quality oil by cold pressing. For the production of 0.7 liters of oil, we need about 35 pods according to traditional production. Natural Pracaxiöl is light to pale yellow and solidifies like butter.

The oil of Pracaxi seeds is considered one of the highest quality vegetable oils in the world and has pronounced antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Pracaxi oil (or Pracachy) has the highest known amount of behenic acid and helps to keep the moisture in the skin. The intensive care oil is the perfect skin care for mature skin and stimulates cell renewal at a high level. Rainforest residents successfully use Pracaxi to prevent stretch marks, fight wrinkles, dry skin and generally alleviate chronic skin problems. But that’s not all: used as hair oil, the oil of Pracaxisamen is unbeatable. It makes the hair extremely supple, less brittle and fragile.

Pracaxi contains valuable acids and high quality vegetable fats. The most important acids are palmitic, stearic, myristic, oleic, linoleic, linolenic, lauric, palmitic, lignoceric and behenic acid (+ 19%). The oil is ideal as a hair oil for damaged and dry hair, as a useful base for skin care oils, masks and shampoos, effective in the prevention of pregnant women from stretch marks, wrinkles, for natural support in eczema, pigmentary disorders, psoriaris and acne.

Use our Pracaxi oil if your end product is to be truly sustainable, fair and free of pesticides.

Pracaxi decays slowly in South America, just like the Copaiba oil for a cheap mass product. For many collectors, there is nothing left but to stretch the won Pracaxi oil with inferior oils or chemicals to achieve higher yields.

For the production of 1 liter of vegetable oil, we need about 40 Pracaxi pods containing 4 to 8 seeds. Therefore, our quality Pracaxi oil is only available in a very limited quantity, which is mainly reserved for our regular customers.
