Amazon Oil is a company that is part of the chemical-oil industry from Amazonia, Brazil, that operates in the area of cold extraction of Amazonian oilseeds.
The oils produced from Amazonian oilseeds are used by the cosmetic, pharmaceutical, food, and textile industries in perfumes, toiletries, beauty products, as dyeing and emollient additives in textiles, as well as ingredients in foods.
The headquarter of Amazon Oil is located in the city of Ananindeua, which is part of the metropolitan area of Belém, the capital of the state of Pará. Its location is ideal because it provides easy access to the rivers in the basin of the Amazon, such as the Tocantins River and the Tapajós River. It is also near Marajo Island, which is the largest sea-river archipelago in the world and has a wealth of oilseed diversity.
The good infrastructure offered by the river-ocean port of Belém opens the oil riches of the Amazon rain forest to the world.
All bioactive ingredients produced by Amazon Oil are obtained from Amazonian plants using methods free of chemicals (without the use of chemical reagents or solvents). Cold extraction allows Amazon Oil to produce high-quality products, such as oils, greases, saps and herbal extracts, and preserves the bioactive compounds that are found in the raw materials.
Amazon Oil possesses an industrial park with 12 presses capable of processing 3 tons of raw material per hour using two independent production lines. Its infrastructure is completely adapted to processing Amazonian oilseeds. For example, it has drying silos that do not degrade seeds and fresh herbs, drying filters used to produce exudates, and high pressure filters used to produce butters and oils.
The extractive processes are conducted under controlled temperatures and hygienic environments. In addition, special care is taken to obtain the raw materials by following standards of quality specified by Amazon Oil, which helps preserve the maximum amount of active compounds and produces safe products for the consumer.
Our products are subjected to a battery of tests and analyses (in partnership with the Federal University of Pará, LAOS department of chemical engineering) in order to confirm the quality of each product before it is released to the market. All procedures and results are archived, as well as samples and counter samples of each shipment, to help create safe and traceable products for our customers.
