What is Jagua Blue Extract?

Jagua Blue Extract is obtained from the fruit of the jagua tree, also known as Genipa americana in Colombia. Jagua powder is extracted using a proprietary extraction method. In additional to being a pH stable, natural blue coloring, the natural extract has been known for its healing properties and is naturally high in vitamin B, minerals such as iron and calcium. It has been used as remedy for illness for centuries throughout the tropical communities in South America.

The tall trees (up to 30 meters) that grow the Jagua fruit, are native to the tropical forests of the Americas and the Caribbean. A Genipa tree produces up to eleven kilos fruit. The Jagua fruits are eight to eleven cm long and oval, they look a bit like a hairless kiwi or even a guava and are said to taste like dried apple. Some Guatamalan tribes carry jagua to ward off ill-fortune and disease. It is often used in deserts and sweets.

The unripe fruit has always been known for its colouring abilities by the indigenous people of the Amazonas, it is a tradition that must be thousands of years old. Most tribes like the Emberá Wounaán, a native tribe in Panama, use fresh Jagua powder as a corporal painting, for ceremonial purposes and because it repels insects. The Matsés Indians of Peru also insert it underneath the skin to create permanent tattoos.

Jagua Blue Extract has been used for a variety of purposes which include body art, medicinal treatments, and food flavoring and has gained popularity as an ingredient in cosmetics and personal care products due to its unique color properties.
