This yellow oil is extracted from the Inca peanut. The oil has a very high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids as well as vitamin E, which ensures a healthy skin appearance. Dry, mature and inflamed skin is optimally cared for and cracks in the upper skin layer are filled. The oil is also used for skin diseases such as psoriasis and neurodermatitis. Sacha Inchi oil helps with skin irritations and inflammations, increases skin elasticity and has a cell-activating and regenerating effect. The low proportion of saturated fatty acids, as well as the linoleic acid it contains, make the oil a very light, non-film-forming oil that absorbs very quickly. Oily skin, therefore, benefits from care with Sacha Inchi-oil as well.
