Promise
What does the product description say?
"Jam-packed with antioxidant beta-carotene (or Vitamin A), Buriti Oil offers impressive moisturising benefits, whilst protecting skin from further damage induced by UVA exposure and environmental aggressors."
WIMJ summary for moisturizing

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: squalene, beta-sitosterol.

Keep in mind that this product does not contain effective ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. This is why an additional product with humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid can be helpful (apply it before this product for the best results).

WIMJ summary for anti-oxidation

This product contains antioxidants (squalene) that might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin to lessen the damage it gets from the UV light (sun). There is not enough evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin though.
