Forest to Face
Imaya Beauty is a Toronto based indie skincare brand that provides 100% natural, non-toxic, anti-aging skincare for sensitive, dry and acne-prone skin. It was founded in collaboration with Amazonian Producers and the Kokama community in Peru to support the conservation and reforestation of the Amazon Rainforest. In the fall of 2020, Imaya Beauty launched its first product - a natural retinol alternative made from 100% sustainably wild harvested Aguaje fruit oil.
Our face oil is one of nature's best kept secrets for youthful, radiant skin.
AGUAJE BEAUTY OIL
Imaya Beauty's Retinoic Face Oil is 100% pure Aguaje oil, one of the richest sources of provitamin A (beta carotene) in the world. Beta carotene is converted to Vitamin A (retinol) when absorbed into the skin, making it a natural retinol alternative.
Retinoic Face Oil is a light, fast absorbing oil that can smooth, clear and firm the skin without clogging pores. Studies show that Aguaje oil can reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve skin elasticity, and fade sun spots. This anti-aging oil restores the skin's natural radiance. It is ideal for all skin types, especially for dry, sensitive or acne-prone skin.
Why our Oil?
We use a proprietary blend of ripe aguaje varietals to craft our oil. Our blend is rich in provitamin A, Omega 3-6-9 fatty acids, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and other antioxidants. Our nutrient rich face oil protects the skin against environmental stressors such UV radiation and pollution.
Our oil is:
✔ Sustainably Wild Harvested
✔ Sourced from the remote Peruvian Amazon Rainforest
✔ Handcrafted by Amazonian women
✔ Ethically sourced
✔ Vegan (no animal derived ingredients)
✔ Certified Cruelty Free by Leaping Bunny
✔ Free from toxins, preservatives and essential oils
We donate 10% of profits to reforestation initiatives.
