14 Wildly Potent Anti-Aging Ingredients from the Amazon Rainforest

Posted by Valeria Cole

No matter where you live in the world, we rely on the rainforests far more than most people realize. From food and medicine to climate control, the Amazon rainforest - in particular - provides the planet and its inhabitants with sustenance and life in so many important ways. The products from the Amazon rainforest can be used for household goods, important medical treatments, and so much more! In fact the Amazon is source to 25% of all western pharmaceuticals, many which treat some of today’s top ailments, such as cancer.

Perhaps the most under-the-radar bounty from the Amazon is rainforest beauty products and cosmetics made from wildly potent rainforest ingredients. This area of the world produces some of the best natural anti-aging ingredients... all chemical-, additive- and cruelty-free! Most importantly, the wild harvesting of these ingredients help to create economically viable local communities, which ensures the forest is worth more standing than it is cut. Amazon rainforest essential oils, butters, clays and other ingredients offer some extremely effective and nourishing natural anti-aging properties when crafted in your skin, hair and wellness routines.
