Description

Cashews are a popular nut. Many people eat them alone or use them in food dishes. They may be found in pastries, pesto, nut butter, many Asian cuisines, among other foods. Cashews and byproducts can also be found in makeup, shampoo, lotions, and other toiletry items. You can look for “Anacardium occidentale extract” and “Anacardium occidentale nut oil” on the label.
