Some examples are products classified as bulk, essential and fragrance oils sold in 5+ lbs. and certain quantities of packaging materials.Fruit from the Andiroba tree contains kernels (seeds) which are rich in oil. This oil is cold pressed and is slightly viscous in its composition, the color is pale yellow although the color may vary from batch to batch. Andiroba seed oil is considered antiseptic, antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral and a dental agent. Andiroba seed oil has been used for centuries in traditional rainforest medicine to aid in the healing of topical skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis, rashes, burns and acne. It is rich in fatty acids and glycerides and, together with its healing properties, provides an excellent natural moisturizing base for skin care formulations.
Andiroba seed oil is a quick penetrating oil with exceptional anti-inflammatory activity, making it ideal as a massage oil or as a carrier oil for treatment products. Andiroba Oil also is used as a natural insect repellant.
Both of these attributes originate from the presence of unusually high levels of circulation promoting compounds called Limonoids, including Andirobin first discovered in Andiroba Oil which has soothing and antiallergenic properties. With its sweet and earthy odor and unique skin feel, this Brazilian rainforest oil will be an exotic and effective addition to your personal care formulations.

Reviewer: Marina Michaels (Santa Rosa, CA) 3.9.2015
I had never heard of Andiroba oil until I found it while browsing here on Camden-Grey. I have very dry skin, and also very sensitive skin. So I need a good moisturizing/healing lotion, but can't buy commercial products because of my sensitivity to the chemicals. I am going to try making my own moisturizer, so I ordered this oil as a potential ingredient. When it arrived, I put a small amount on my face, hands, and arms. The oil is a semisolid oil at room temperature, but melts very quickly on skin contact. I loved how it felt going on--the best comparison I can make is to the silky feeling of olive oil. The next day the improvement in my skin was almost unbelievable. It has a faint waxy woody scent.

This oil is great on bumps and bruises, my son has injured his fingers three times playing football and each time I apply andiroba oil to his fingers and within 2-3 days he can bend his fingers. It's great I won't be without it anymore, and CG is where I'll only purchase it. Thank you CG wonderful product.

This oil is reputed to have anti-fungal properties, so I plan to use it in a skin cream. It does have a bit of an unpleasant smell, but not nearly as much as tamanu oil. It absorbs pretty quickly into the skin and the smell fades over time.
