Guaraná is a creeping shrub native to the Amazon (and particularly the regions of Manaus and Parintins). In the lushness of the Brazilian Amazon where it originates, it often grows to 40ft high. Outside of its popularity in a drink, Guaraná¹s therapeutic activity and use as a stimulant comes from xanthine alkaloids (caffeine, theophylline, theobromine) where caffeine alone has been shown to facilitate fat loss and reduce fatigue. Guaraná has been used in body care products for its tonifying and astringent properties, and in the treatment of cellulite for its lipolytic and vasodilation actions. The use of this in our skin care products is intended to reduce puffiness around the eyes and excess fat under the chin and neck areas.
