ESSENTIEL DE VIE – L’ELIXIR, THE ORIGINS

I met with Alberto and Camilo Jaramillo in Hamburg during In Cosmetics Show in 2014 (OMG!)They were promoting their Kakaï Oil from Colombia. I fell immediately in love with their oil for several reasons .

EFFICACY
They tested the oil for cosmetic purposes and the results are really impressive!

FAIR TRADE
The Colombian Company is ensuring that nuts harvesting is providing fair income to the Colombian workers.
It is also an alternative to illicit crop.

BIODIVERSITY PROTECTION
Reforestation of Colombian Amazon region with 5000 Hectares of Kakaï trees is also promoting protection of this specie.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OF THE REGION
Kakaï nuts harvesting generates employment and is a profitable activity. One hectares of trees generates the equivalent of a salary per month per household for over 50 years.
