 You've surely seen loads of these tiny brown nuts sitting on coffee tables over the years, but did you know that the oil contained in Brazil Nuts is ideal for use in cosmetics?  Brazil Nut Oil is surprisingly light in texture and aroma, yet is extremely nourishing and moisturizing.  Brazil Nut Oil contains a high amount of Selenium, a powerful antioxidant, making this oil quite stable, and excellent for inclusion in skin care products.  This feather light nut oil hydrates and replenishes dry skin and hair so well, that is often recommended for inclusion in problematic skin formulations.  Brazil Nut Oil is great for treating psoriasis, eczema, chronic dry skin, and other skin conditions.  It's quick absorption makes it perfect for use in lotions, skin creams, and hair conditioners as well.
