Popular anti-wrinkle creams such as Oil of Olay and Aveda contain andiroba oil. Local tribes make soap and candles with the oil, the latter product serving effectively as a mosquito repellent. The bark exhibits antibiotic activity, and the flower shows promise in cancer research for its anti-tumor capacities, especially regarding skin and uterine cancers.
