When we talk about "unlocking a Peruvian beauty secret" we are referring to Bataua, the absolutely magical super-fruit.Bataua fruit grows on wild Palms in several regions of South America. The Bataua fruit in RUVI is regeneratively wild harvested in the Amazon jungles of Peru. "Regeneratively" means the fruit is harvested by climbing so that the Palms can continue to yield its bountiful fruit year after year.
Unfortunately over 90% of the fruit harvested from wild Palms across the Amazon is done by cutting down the Palms. We are on a mission to greatly reduce and hopefully one day end this tragic practice by training harvesters to climb Palms using modern climbing gear that we are helping to supply. You can see this amazing climbing gear in action on the Our Story page of our website, and it's the reason our founder Boris started RUVI in the first place. See link in bio to watch the video.
Now more on Bataua.... When you apply the RUVI Glow Serum, your skin is literally receiving ancient plant medicine, containing some of the most beneficial nutrients necessary for improving the health and appearance of our skin.
One of the most important antioxidants in skin care is Vitamin E. Bataua oil contains 63 times more Vitamin E per milligram than Avocado oil, just to put the richness and power of this amazing fruit in perspective.
Another incredible quality of Bataua oil is its perfect combination of Oleic, Palmitic, and Stearic acids. Oleic acid is the most powerful natural ingredient for deep moisture. Bataua has one of the highest concentrations of naturally occurring Oleic acid of any natural source on the planet.
Once Oleic acid is absorbed by our skin, and we have never seen an oil absorb better than Bataua, Stearic and Palmitic acid then work their magic to lock in the moisture. And that's exactly what happens when you use RUVI, the deeply absorbed rich moisture is locked in, and the resulting softness, suppleness and glow can literally last for days. That's the distinctively unique RUVI Glow our users rave about, and we can't wait for you to experience it too!
