Comments: Your Andiroba Oil is better than any I've used in the USA. It doesn't have the objectionable smell that others have. I highly recommend Andiroba Oil for arthritis and pain management.

Comments: Goes on a bit heavy and tends to sit on top of the skin a while. Has a light, woody scent. Using small percentage in acne formulation, and it's working wonderfully so far.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
