Sacha Inchi-olie (Plukenetia volubilis)
Known as the Inca peanut, this light and spreadable oil has high levels of omega-3. It is especially useful for acne-prone skin, as it is readily absorbed while reducing redness and inflammation.
Sacha inchi oil is obtained from the pressing of the fruit and seeds of the pracaxi - a tree native to the land surrounding the Amazon river.
This oil can appear from clear to pale yellow in colour. The richness of omega-3 this oil has makes it perfect to calm down eczema or psoriasis - its anti-inflammatory properties soothe the skin, leaving it soft and bright.
Lush source the oil directly from producers in Peru, an NGO and social enterprise with the vision of empowering small scale collectors and producers of raw materials from the Amazon and the Andean highlands.
