COPAIBA

Copaifera officinalis

  • History

    The name "Copaïba" comes from the Guarani word Kupa’iwa, meaning "which contains something within" in reference to the oleoresin extracted by making incisions in the trunk of the tree that the native Indians of South America seal with wax after each harvest.

  • Location

    The copaiba used in oleoresin comes from Amazonia

  • Melvita's Commitment

    Copaïba oil helps to inhibit the release of substances that cause sensitive or allergic reactions. Because of its purifying and toning properties, copaïba can be used in personal hygiene products such as deodorants. It is also suitable for oily or problem-prone skin, and oily hair.
