Natural ingredients from the Colombian Amazon

Amazon Bioingredients

We are Amazon Bioingredients. Through R&D processes, we produce 100% natural, effective, and quality ingredients for the anti-aging cosmetic industry. Working with indigenous communities, we contribute to the conservation of 503 hectares of the Colombian Amazon rainforest that provide the wild fruits for the elaboration of our products. We are an indigenous company located in the Andean-Amazon foothills of Putumayo, Colombia, and we work for the Collective Benefit and Interest -BIC-. 

Cosmetic Ingredients

The cosmetic industry works with us because the ingredients we produce with high-quality standards for skin, hair, and nails come from wild fruits of the Amazon rainforest and are 100% natural. Compared to cultivated raw materials, wild products have a higher concentration of active ingredients, micronutrients, and fatty acid composition.

These ingredients: 

  • Contributes to cellular regeneration 
  • Support collagen production 
  • Contain high concentrations of Vitamin A, E, F, C, and Linoleic acid C y ácido linoleico 
  • Contain three times more retinol than other products.

Cacay oil

Cacay oil is an Amazonian oil extracted by cold pressing. Its high concentration of vitamin E, F, and Retinol (vitamin A) activates cell renewal and collagen production, increasing the skin's elasticity and firmness and attenuating skin spots and wrinkles.

It contains 50% more Vitamin E and twice as much Linoleic Acid than Argan oil. In addition, this oil has three times more Retinol than Rosehip oil.

Our Allies
Social Commitment
The Amazon is a strategic territory for its natural and cultural diversity; however, employment and economic opportunities have revolved around cattle ranching, mining and other activities, leaving aside the Bioeconomy, which is the region's true potential. Our business model is an inclusive one. We buy Amazonian fruits directly from indigenous and peasants, promoting fair trade and facilitating their training. We are committed to contributing to the community's livelihoods and regional sustainable development.
Environmental Impact
We are in the biological corridor of the Andean Amazon foothill in the south of Colombia. This ecosystem is part of the Amazonian communities' environment, economy, culture, and traditions. Through sustainable forest management, we encourage the natural conservation of the Amazonian foothills in our collection areas and promote the preservation of wild species.
Our History
1. Wild fruit collection In the Andean Amazonian foothills of Putumayo —where are the main territory's rivers— the indigenous communities Inga, Pastos, and Embera Chami collect the seeds of the inchi tree. At harvest time, they travel through the virgin forest searching for the precious seed, walking distances of 4 to 7 hours on foot.
2. Collecting Canangucha Fruit The Amazonian plain of the department of Putumayo, is a beautiful and unique landscape dressed in wild Canangucha palms. In these wetlands, communities affected by the armed conflict climb palms between 15 and 20 meters high to collect Canangucha.
Our Company
75% of our work team are women, and we strive to ensure decent working conditions and opportunities for learning and growth within our company.
