Ingredient Spotlight: Copaiba Essential Oil

What is Copaiba Essential Oil?

Copaiba Balsam is steam distilled from the resin of the Copaifera officinalis tree, native to tropical forests in Central and South America. It has a light yellow color with a soft, sweet, woody, slightly balsamic aroma.

 

What Makes Copaiba Essential Oil Special?

Copaiba Balsam consists primarily of sesquiterpenes, up to 90%. The sesquiterpene, b-caryophyllene is of particular interest. Sesquiterpenes possess antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiproliferative, anti-oxidant, calming and pain relieving properties.
