The Amanaci Way

We produce natural vegetable oils, consistencies and plant extracts from fruits and nuts of wild jungle plants collected by our indigenous partners in areas of true biodiversity.

The Amanaci Way:
Wild harvesting against climate change

The forest dwellers often have no income and despite their traditional way of life, they want to participate in modern life. Apart from selling fish and manjos, the only other options are trading wood or prospecting for gold. With the wild collection the collectors become guardians of the forest, because wild fruits only grow in an intact ecosystem and so every single tree, whose fruits we collect, protects at least 400 m² of untouched rainforest.

Wild collection based on respectful cooperation

The sustainable collection of wild plants protects the environment and gives our customers access to precious raw materials that form the maximum nutrient density in their original form. Hardly any commercial raw material still has the same active ingredient content as wild original plants.
With wild collection, we provide the people of the Amazon with a sustainable income and thus a real alternative to the business of slash-and-burn or the sale of precious woods.

Gentle processing for strong ingredients

We are convinced of our products because we develop and produce our raw materials ourselves as experts. Our raw materials are absolutely pure and contain no chemical substances such as benzene or hexane, which are often used to increase oil yield. Our innovative processing method avoids excessive heating and thus preserves the active ingredients. Filtering is also carried out exclusively mechanically.

Sustainable reforestation

The fact is that once rainforest is cleared, heavy tropical rainfall quickly leads to soil erosion with ecological consequences that are difficult to reverse. Nevertheless, in the last 5 years, thanks to the knowledge of forest and indigenous people and a special composting process, we have developed a permaculture system that transforms cleared areas into green oases.
We don’t reforest because it seems fashionable: We do it for the forest dwellers, for our customers, for us and for our planet. In permaculture reforestation, we use 40 % crops – plants and trees that will later be harvested for raw materials – and 60 % native wild plants. At the same time, we cultivate the wild Melipona bee to improve the flora and fauna.
