Meet the first beauty range to hit Irish stores with Cupuacu as the Main ingredient.( Pronounced Koo – poo ah – soo!). It is a hot new Brazilian skincare ingredient that makes moisturisers much more powerful and has many therapeutic benefits for your skin. It is referred to as the ‘Pharmacy in a fruit’ by Brazilians because of its numerous health benefits and it is also listed as the Brazilian national fruit.’’

Calling all Cocoa butter lovers, Cupuacu is similar to cocoa butter, but with double the potency. Cupuacu has antioxidant and emollient properties that soften hydrate and improve skin elasticity. Cupuacu is prized by brazilians for its ability to regenerate the skin and restore a youthful radiance. Cupuacu is also rich in powerful antioxidants such as quercetin and kaempferol the help maintain the skin’s elasticity and help improve the appearance of scars.
Ziaja’s new line of cupuacu based products are enriched with shea butter and macadamia oil to transform from drab to fab skin instantly. They are intensely moisturising but absorb easily into the skin leaving a lustrous silky after feel. There are four new products in this collection. A shower balm, bronzing body lotion, shower & bath soap and a sugar scrub. I was lucky to get my hands on two of these products. I adore that Ziaja’s ethos is to develop fantastic affordable daily care products while ensuring they are source of pleasure and well – being.
Ziaja offer a range of products for every stage of a woman’s life and her family too.

It is as if Ziaja have bottled up the scent of summer.
