Annatto seed oleoresin (or oil) is a thick red colored liquid extracted from thin resinous aril portion of seeds of Annatto (Bixa Orellana), which is native to northern South America. Annatto seeds contain bixin pigment which is a yellow-red(orange) carotenoid. Bixin has antioxidant properties which help protect cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. It is rich in essential minerals like calcium, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese, and also has antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.

Annatto is used as a natural coloring agent in cosmetics, candles and soaps to provide colors in shades of orange and red.
