About the Darien Initiative

The Jagua products offered by Nature's Body Art are made using Jagua fruit collected by village residents and members of indigenous Indian tribes in the the Darien Gap, a remote, roadless swath of jungle on the border of Panama & Colombia. Largely untouched by the modern world, the Darien is one of the least visited places on the planet.

We are committed to reinvesting in these communities from which our Jagua products originate, thus we donate a portion of every purchase to the Darien Initiative, a non-profit that aims to provide opportunities for the residents of this remote area.  The Darien Initiative offers support to residents through the arts, agricultural assistance, sports, education, and self help programs.
