Copaifera multijuga is a large tropical canopy tree known for its production of copaiba oil-resin, which is tapped from the trunk of the tree. It has significant commercial value due to the therapeutic properties of its resin, which is used in traditional medicine and cosmetics. The Amazonian Copaiba can grow up to 30-40 meters in height with a trunk diameter of up to 1 meter, making it one of the larger trees in the Amazon rainforest. The multijuga is not commonly cultivated outside its natural habitat, as it thrives in the specific conditions of the Amazonia: well-drained, fertile soils typical of its rainforest environment.

*The Amazonian butters and oils have been tested by generations of rainforest's indigenous and ribeirinho people. They are used for cooking, baking, healing, moisturizing and protecting against the elements.

When we consume Amazonia's sustainable, non-timber-products, we give the local people an alternative to logging and farming which are the two largest responsible factors of the deforestation of such an important ecosystem.
