Discover Chapter 1: Copaiba


Deep in the Amazon Forest, the skilled locals of the Brazilian Reserva Extrativista Riozinho do Anfrísio expertly harvest copaiba resin. They extract the woody, green and spicy oil without harming the plants’ growth, using a process known as ‘drilling’.


Firmenich maintains long-term partnerships with these communities to positively impact their lives. Buying from them directly, Firmenich ensures that they receive a fair income while protecting the rainforest.


Through this partnership, we ensure sustainable quantities and the highest quality Copaiba oil for our creators and customers.
