Product Description: The oleoresin is obtained from trees belonging to the genus Copaifera, of the legume family, used chiefly in varnishes and lacquers. The resin is harvested by tapping or drilling holes into the trunk of the tree, much like how rubber trees are tapped.
Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
