Known as the Inca's peanut, Sacha Inchi is a plant native to the Peruvian Amazon. It is said that Sacha Inchi was highly valuable for its properties since pre-Columbian times. The fact is evidenced by PromPeru’s data repository where it says that this shrub plant was cultivated during the Inca empire over 3000–5000 years ago. Sacha Inchi was portrayed in phytomorphic ancient artifacts in Inca's graves at the Peruvian Coast. Also, it is said that Sacha Inchi later took to the Antisuyo—one of the four territorial divisions of the original Inca empire located in the Amazon region. Sacha Inchi (Plukenetia volubilis linneo
) contains more than 50 % of vegetable protein. Sacha inchi is rich in alpha-linolenic omega 3 and linoleic omega 6. These fatty acids can regulate and reduce cholesterol. This oil could be used to restructure, fortifie and protect skin, hair, and nails; also ideal for the ones who have delicate skin. Vitamin E plays an essential role in skin regeneration and the unsaturated fatty acids nourish, prevent and treat skin and hair problems. Sacha Inchi grows in Madre de Dios, Huanuco, Oxapampa, San Martin, Rodriguez de Mendoza, Ucayali’s basin, Putumayo, Iquitos, and Caballo Cocha surrounding areas.
