    Hi @Pasita, I’m from Peru. Unfortunately, the mayority of ingredients we use in the region are imported, mostly from India, China or USA/Europe (the latter are often the specialty chemicals). For the few regional manufacturers of ingredients, I can only think about Brazil (there used to be some in Colombia, but for different reasons, they left).

    Nevertheless, it might be cheaper to import anyway.

    Good luck!
