Tree of youth
Mulateiro is known to regenerate completely in the event of injury. Once a year he drops the whole bark and makes it completely new. The Amazon Indians extract the bark together with ayahuasca for spiritual rituals or as a compress for cuts, burns, parasitic infections and fungal diseases. In addition, an infusion is extracted from the bark, which the Indians use after bathing in order to protect themselves against the external influences of aging.
What is Mulateiro Extract?
The mulateiro bark contains a very high content of tannins, phenols and organic acids which should be responsible for the astringent, antibacterial, antifungal and insecticidal activity. Investigations of isolated phenols have been able to show that they have a strong antioxidant effect. This explains why indigenous people traditionally use the extract to “reduce” the aging process.

As an additive in natural ointments, should never be used more than 5% mulateiro extract due to the high terpene content. Always store the product protected from light and sealed, otherwise the resin may thicken.
