I recently received my bottle of the Cacay and it feels amazing. NL

Hi Steve/Carley’s!

I have been using your new Cacay serum moisturizer for a little over a week now, and am in. love. It is truly something special. I am tempted to order a backup while it is still on sale, and especially since you’ve just noted below that this oil is in short supply, however as you also noted below, a little really does go a long way and so I think my bottle will last me several months. If I order another now for backup and keep it in the fridge until I am ready for it (as I usually do when stocking up on my other Carley’s products), will it retain its freshness?
Thank you so much!!


Retinol encourages skin cell turnover ; this new skin is delicate and should not be exposed to the sun. That is why these ingredients should only be found in products intended for night use. Vitamin A derivatives, including retinol, rapidly break down when exposed to the sun. Retinol is known for helping to fight acne, reduce wrinkles, stimulate collagen, and promote cellular turnover. Retinol is also known for evening out skin tone and increasing blood flow to the skin.

Similar to our Marula Serum/Moisturizer. Except this oil has Retinol anti-aging qualities just like the high end Retinol Moisturizers, but without the horrible other ingredients.

Why not just make a Serum? We tested Serums and were surprised how low the absorption rate was. They typically suspend anti-aging ingredients in propylene glycol or glycerin or alcohol. Mostly they sit on the skin's surface and eventually evaporate.

So why a Serum/Moisturizer? Because our Moisturizers absorb deeply. Therefore pulling the valuable anti-aging ingredients deep into the skin.

Why not use the oil straight? Our skin is mostly water. Oils and water do not mix. Although some benefits come from using it directly. Deep results happen when made into a true moisturizer. Plus when you buy the oil there is no way to know if what you're buying is what is on the label. Often resellers mix lower cost oils in to make money.

The Amazon Rain Forest contains thousands of species of plants that have had little to no testing. Recently Colombian Cacay Oil has come to be known as the next big thing in skin care. This is due to the unusual combination of components of this oil. It is high in Vitamins A and E.

* 3 times more natural Retinol (Vitamin A) than Rosehip Oil.

* 2 times more Linoleic Acid than Virgin Argan Oil.

* 50% more Vitamin E than Virgin Argan Oil

Cacay trees are recently being planted in huge numbers. It takes 5 years for them to produce fruit. Cacay trees are very tall and provide great shade to Coffee Arabica. They can grow hand in hand and this makes them very sustainable crops plus they do not encourage deforestation – quite the opposite actually. But right now the demand exceeds the supply. So the cost of this oil is around $80 a pound.

Cacay Oil (Caryodendron Orinocense) : OK almost no high end moisturizers on the market use precious high end oils as the only oil. They prefer to use much less expensive oils and use a small amount of the named oil(sometimes just a few drops). Since our products are sold direct to you, the consumer, instead of several middle men, we can afford to use high end ingredients as the primary ingredients.

Behind the scenes. I do all the formulating. I've been doing this since 1999. I work with a spreadsheet. It takes patience, precise scales and a lot of trial and error. Many many batches before we find the right combination.

Skin's Structure: Yes as we age our collagen declines due to loss of lipids. Our moisturizers help stop this decline.


Reverse Osmosis Purified Water: Reverse Osmosis is the gold standard of water. Obviously we wanted fast absorption. Using a water with any hard water components or contaminants would slow down this absorption. Most companies use 'purified' water. Which may or may not be as good. Might seem like a minor point, but I saw a huge difference in the quality of our products when we switched from 'just purified' about 19 years ago. Now we only use R-O Water.

Cacay Oil (Caryodendron Orinocense ) A full 15%. Most companies use a few drops and then they can legally call it after those few drops. This is the real certified oil as a primary ingredient.

Hyaluronic acid serum. We use this ingredient correctly. Anything much over 100 degrees F and this ingredient is destroyed. Most companies just add the powder during production during high heat. So even though it is on the label, it really isn't there. First we make a serum in pure reverse osmosis purified water. This takes a few days at a specific low temperature. It turns into a jell/serum. Then we add the serum at the end of the product mixing. When the temperature is below 100 degrees F. Any other way and the ingredient is ineffective. This is very difficult for big manufacturers to do when they are mixing and pouring at high temperatures.

The magic of this ingredient lies in its ability to retain moisture; it's considered to have a greater capacity to hold moisture than any other natural or synthetic polymer. In fact, one gram of hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to six liters of water!

This is important with regard to aging because one of the hallmarks of youthful skin is its moisture content.

As we age, our skin loses moisture, resulting in a loss of firmness and pliability. Hyaluronic acid can improve your skin's moisture content and at the same time strengthen skin's barrier; that is, the outer layers of your skin. A healthy barrier looks and feels softer, smoother, and plumper—all hallmarks of younger-looking skin! But, with hyaluronic acid, that's not all you get—there are many additional benefits beyond just a more youthful appearance.

We know that just about everything, from sun damage and acne to sensitive skin and rosacea, can lead to a damaged barrier, so repairing skin's barrier with skin-identical ingredients, like hyaluronic acid (as detailed in this article), can go a long way toward fixing, or at least minimizing, those issues, which means it's helpful for all skin types. Its lightweight texture isn't an issue for oily skin, and it's gentle enough that it isn't a problem for sensitive skin.

Even better: Hyaluronic acid also provides antioxidant defense against free-radical damage, and reduces inflammation. Now that's what we call a multitasking anti-aging ingredient!

Bamboo Extract (Bambusa vulgaris (Bamboo) extract): Very eco-friendly ingredient. Ideal for sustainability claims in all-natural products. Multi-purpose ingredient offering various properties making it a valuable plant for a variety of cosmetics. Has good moisturizing properties. The bamboo stems are high in silica deposits which give smoothness to the skin.

Emulsifying Wax, a vegetable wax when used at the right temperature combines oils and water into a true fast absorbing moisturizer. This is not xanthan gum or algin or seaweed. Those are thickeners and make fake moisturizers.

Bisabolol: (Alpha-Bisabolol) Alpha Bisabolol Liposome PF offers a wide range of benefits. It is commonly used in cosmetic formulations for reducing wrinkles, dry skin to reduce flaking and restore suppleness. Formulators commonly use Alpha Bisabolol to take advantage of its anti-inflammatory properties.

Stearic Acid another vegetable wax that helps to make the moisturizer creamy.

Germall plus (diazolidinyl Urea, 3-Iodo-2-propylbutylcarbarmate) less than one percent. Vegetable derived. Proven Safe and effective. Paraben Free.

Natural Essential Oils Rose absolute.

pH neutral (pH 7) Why is this important? Practically every skin care product on the market is acidic. We believe a lot of people are suffering with an overuse syndrome of too much acid. Nature loves neutral. Ask any experienced gardener how hard it is to grow vegetables in acidic soil. Your blood is neutral. Most of your body is. This whole story of the 'acid mantle' is unverifiable.

5 of 5 Magic Serums! January 4, 2020
Reviewer: Lara from Northern CA  
I love all of my Carley’s moisturizers. Anti-aging Rose and Prickly Pear are my faves, and I didn’t think I’d ever need another one, much less a serum, but thought I’d give both of the new Carley’s serums a whirl. Let me tell you, they are both very high-level fancy-expensive special, all at a bargain of a price! My 50-year old skin is ridiculously soft and glowing. I actually get compliments on my skin all the time, and no one believes my age. This is a big deal for someone who had terrible acne skin for most of my life.

Thanks to Carley’s, I am kind of a moisturizer/serum hoarder now. I use them all and my skin is so happy!

I have turned most of my girlfriends, coworkers, sister, and mom into die-hard Carley’s users! Carley’s has the best, most affordable skin care products I have ever used.

5 of 5 Cacay October 10, 2019
Reviewer: Pam from N/A  
I have been using this product for about 6 weeks and find that I've had better result with this then with prescription Tretinoin, which is very drying. This softens my skin and I can see wrinkle smoothing as well.  And no breaking out!  YAY~

5 of 5 Cacay serum/ moisturizer September 16, 2019
Reviewer: Jill from DuBois, PA  
This is my absolute newest favorite item from Charley's.   I bought it on a whim.   And now im in love! My skin looks different! I wish I would learn to take before and after pictures. I'm pretty pessimistic.  I assume products will fail their claims.   But, not this one.  It feels amazing on.  Very lightweight and a small amount goes a long way!  My pores appear smaller, the lines on my forehead are less prominent.   I am athletic and swim a lot and also worked in a factory.  This keeps my skin looking young.  I swear! Im nearly 40 and even today I have gotten a compliment saying I look like I'm in my 20's!  I don't know if it's coincidence or real,  but since I've started really committing to carleys,  and doing the regiments as directed, I get compliments often!

5 of 5 Cacay Retinol Night Serum/Moisturizer September 14, 2019
Reviewer: Manuel from Portland  
As a regular user of Carley’s cleansers, moisturizers and soaps for over 15 years, my skin is in great shape. Been a particular fan of the Carley’s Daytime and Midnight Moisturizers for acne prone skin, Regeneration, Baobab and Prickly Pear Moisturizers, they’ve kept my skin smooth and glowing over the years.  But trying out a sample of the Cacay Night Serum/Moisturizer over the course of a couple weeks made a visible difference in the smoothness and firmness of my skin. The texture is quite luxurious, very light but deeply penetrating.  It’s fine on its own, but paired with the Marula Anti-Aging Day Serum/Moisturizer, it’s like my face has been airbrushed.  Between the two of them, they are Carley’s masterpiece moisturizers!
