) is a tree of Amazonian origin belonging to the Fabaceae family. This tree can measure up to 100 feet in height with yellow flowers and reddish fruits. Over the years, copaiba has been used as a natural remedy to calm ailments such as rhinitis, bronchitis, cough, and flu. Among the innumerable natural medicinal products that the native populations of the Amazon have always used, copaiba oil is, according to the Spanish and Portuguese chroniclers from the beginning of the colony, the most important of them. Copaiba oil is a natural resin with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action. Besides, this oil has moisturizing properties for skin with an anti-wrinkle and rejuvenating effect, highly recommended for dry skin.
