Refined Pataua Oil: Due to the composition of Pataua Oil, it is rich in essential fatty acids such as linolenic, linoleic, and oleic. Both the fruit and the oil extracted from the patauá pulp have to revitalize properties and are generally indicated for cosmetic applications such as shampoos, conditioners, hair masks, and skin moisturizers, as well as products for chemically damaged hair and scalp.
The Oenocarpus bataua species belongs to the family Arecaceae and is a plant native to South America, especially in the basins of the Amazon and Orenoco Rivers. The species, popularly known as Patauá, Patoá, and Patuá, has many uses and occurs all over Amazon. In cooking, the patauá oil is mainly used in salads and fried foods because it is highly unsaturated and rich in amino acids. The fruits are also often eaten raw in nature.
Hair care is a constant concern for men and women, as it identifies the style of a person, health, status, and level of personal care and self-esteem as well as individual aspirations of elegance, freedom, and other aspects.
In addition to the care of hair itself, there is now a concern with the scalp, since any abnormality ends up reflecting directly on the hair, causing it to grow dry and undisciplined, with damage to its fiber, possibly leading to lead to hair loss. In more severe cases, it can compromise hair growth.
The scalp is the new focus of the cosmetic industry. For this reason, many cosmetic products specifically oriented for the scalp have been launched. There are now a variety of products in this segment, such as products to control oiliness and dandruff, reduce hair loss, promote deeper cleaning, and even moisturize and protect against sunlight.
