Virtues of Carapa procera oil

What is Carapa procera oil and where can you find it? 

It’s actually a re-discovery. Indeed, this vegetable oil was already used at the time of the Queens of Africa and Pharaohs... Its multiple therapeutic properties explained its success.

Our approach is part of the preservation of the natural biotope of Carapa procera. We want to avoid its destruction through deforestation. In addition, the objective is to create alternative income for local populations from slaughter. Thus, harvesting Carapa procera nuts helps protect the species. We therefore help to ensure the fragile balance of millennia-old biodiversity and its benefits.

The Carapa procera is a species of tropical tree. It is only present in preserved natural forests (therefore in the wild). It is very rare. Its density does not exceed a few trees per hectare. Today it is limited in the world to a few extremely remote regions of West Africa. The Carapa procera is also in danger of extinction. VSUnlike Carapa guianensis or grandiflora (common species), its physico-chemical environment is essential. It directly impacts the reproductive capacity of the Carapa procera. The therapeutic qualities (biochemical specificities) of its oil depend on it.

What are the virtues and benefits of Carapa procera vegetable oil? 

When ripe, the fruit (a sort of large bug) releases nuts onto the ground. They look like small chestnuts. When pressed, the seeds of Carapa procera provide the oil. It is very characteristic. It has been used for millennia by the populations of Africa for its many virtues.

This vegetable oil has therapeutic properties. The ethnopharmacopoeia mentions this. 

  • restructuring of the epidermis,
  • anti-inflammatory, antiseptic
  • healing among other things. Carapa procera oil is renowned for its restorative action on skin lesions. (read the testimony from our founder)

The unique effectiveness of LM Natura treatments lies in the very high concentration of first cold pressed wild Carapa procera oil.

The active ingredients of Carapa procera oil

Carapa, belonging to a tree in the Meliaceae family, is therefore a natural product with multiple benefits, particularly for the skin, thanks to its numerous active ingredients: 

  • Vitamin A to stimulate healing
  • Triterpenes to revitalize tired and damaged skin
  • Essential fatty acids, antioxidants to soothe irritation reactions
  • Omega 6 linoleic to strengthen the skin's defenses.
  • 7 limonoids different

How to use carapa oil? 

We extract our oil from fresh wild fruits. They are rigorously selected at the very place of harvest. This makes it possible to obtain complete products. They are not degraded by chemical substances. They are also protected from transport conditions and delays.

Our natural phyto-care products are made from rigorously selected batches of Carapa procera oil. We consider :

  • the species,
  • but also the biotope,
  • or the genotype,

just like biochemical specificity. They guarantee you unique therapeutic properties.

We are in fact the first and only ones in the world to have scientifically decoded the molecular specificity of Carapa procera. We were able to preserve its active ingredients throughout the process of developing our treatments.
