Reduce wrinkles with Cacay Oil

Reduce wrinkles with Cacay Oil by up to 45%.

Cacay Oil (Caryodendron orinocense Seed Oil), also called Kahai Oil, is one of the Amazon’s best kept secrets. High in Vitamin E, Vitamin A in the form of Retinol, and Linoleic Acid (Vitamin F), this natural oil can help improve a number of skin conditions.

It is highly effective in reducing uneven skin tone, sun damage, stretch marks, acne, blotchiness, wrinkles, and scar tissue.


A clinical study at Derma Consult in Germany showed that daily application of Cacay Oil within a 4 week period reduced the appearance of wrinkles by 45%.

In this study Cacay Oil was tested on 20 females between the ages of 36-55. The duration of the study was 28 days, and the skin application regimen had a frequency of two times per day.

The results showed that Cacay Oil boosts the skin’s hydration and elasticity while also visibly smooths out and firms up the appearance of the skin.

What Is Cacay Oil?

Cacay Oil, also called Kahai Oil, is obtained from the nut of the Cacay tree (Caryodendron orinocense). The tree grows in South America along the eastern base of the Andes mountains in Venezuela, Ecuador, and Colombia.

The tree grows up to 35 meters in height and forms fruits the size of an orange. Each cacay fruit generally produces three nuts, from which a liquid oil can be extracted. The oil is edible. High-quality Cacay Oil has a yellow-golden natural colour.

Colombia’s Amazonian natives are known to have used the oil for healing wounds and conditioning their skin and hair.

I use this Cacay Oil by Curelle. It has the highest Linoleic Acid (Vitamin F) content of any plant oil (twice as much as Argan Oil), and also the highest Retinol count (three times as much as Rosehip Oil).

  • 2x more Linoleic Acid and 50% more Vitamin E than Argan Oil.
  • 3x more Retinol (Vitamin A) and 65% more Linoleic Acid than Rose Hip Oil, and significantly more Vitamin E than Rose Hip Oil.

Compared to all other oils, Cacay Oil has the highest amount of natural Retinol (Vitamin A) a component that reduces wrinkles, helps boost collagen production and even regenerates the skin. Retinol helps to activate the skin’s natural renewal process, to rebuild and replenish skin tissue. It helps to visibly smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

The ability of Linoleic Acid (Vitamin F) to reduce inflammation and prevent the excess production of melanin pigment makes Cacay Oil one of the best anti-ageing skincare ingredients.

With 50% higher Vitamin E concentration than Argan Oil and high amounts of Omega 3, Cacay Oil is also a moisturizing powerhouse.

When Cacay Oil is applied to the skin it provides a barrier from harsh UV rays which can help protect your skin from sun damage which may lead to premature aging.
