Our organic wildcrafted Sejé Oil, also known as Patauá, Rahua, or Bataua Oil, is extracted from the fruit pulp of Oenocarpus bataua using the traditional method in which the fruits are first soaked in hot water to segregate the pulp from the seeds. Resembling a lot like its Amazonian cousin Acai Berries, Patawa (Bataua) fruits are deep-purple colored berries wild harvested from the very tall Ungurahui (Seje) palms (upto 43 metres in height) naturally abundant in the tropical rainforests of Amazon region.
Traditionally used by natives tribes of the Amazon as a hair loss and anti-dandruff treatment, Pataua Oil starts at the root moisturizing and calming the scalp, and works all the way to the ends of hair to promote intense hydration. Oenocarpus Bataua Oil is ideal for inclusion in hair and scalp care, as well as within reparative skin care and body formulations.
Because of the nutrients in the oil as well as the fatty acids and antioxidants, Pataua Oil is widely used as a nourishing moisturizer in skin care, and is particularly beneficial for those with aging, oily, or mature skin. Due to its abundant Vitamin E content (around 170mg/100g), Sejé Oil is a powerful antioxidant, preventing the proliferation of free radicals in the skin, assuring a better alimentation to the skin tissue and improving the elasticity of the skin, reducing wrinkles.
Pataua oil has also been used amongst the tribes internally as a lung fortifier, strengthening the respiratory health and supporting the elimination of disease and infection of the lungs.
