Hyaluronic Tucuma Extra & Hyaluronic Tucuma Pro

Two bioactives from the CitroForest line that protect and induces skin’s natural Hyaluronic Acid.

Tucuma oil and butter are extracted from the fruit of the tucuma palm, which is native to the Brazilian Amazon rainforest. Its highly effective bioactive substances form the basis of these two new and innovative products.


HYALURONIC TUCUMA EXTRA is extracted from the seeds of the fruit and has biocompounds that stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid by 27%, naturally present in the extracellular matrix of the dermis. The restoration of natural levels of this polymer improves the skin‘s biomechanical properties, such as firmness, ensuring liveliness and uniformity. More than that, this powerful vegetable active reintegrates the skin barrier lipids, forming a pleasant film on the surface of the skin and functional in its inner layers.

HYALURONIC TUCUMA PRO is obtained from this tropical pulp, with a warm and intense color, this bioactive, in addition to maximizing the response of hyaluronic acid synthesis in fibroblasts exposed to UV radiation (in 44%), protects cellular activity in the production of this glycosaminoglycan (88%). This means not only strengthening the body‘s natural defenses against the effects of ultraviolet radiation, but also reversing some damage, such as cell aging.
