Cupuacu (Cupuassu) Butter



Cupuacu Ultra Refined Butter is native to Brazil and is extracted by cold pressing the seeds of the Cupuacu tree, which is commonly cultivated throughout the Amazonian basin. The Cupuacu butter contains phytosterols, an unsaponifiable component that helps to slow down the deterioration of the skin. Recent research studies have shown that Phytosterols help to promote the elasticity and suppleness of the skin. It is hard at room temperature and has a very thick and creamy consistency. Cupuacu butter also has a mild and sweet aroma to it.

Benefits of Cupuacu Butter:

  • High capacity for water absorption, making it an excellent emollient, which can be used in body butter, creams, lotions, and foundations to prevent drying of the skin.
  • Reduces skin degeneration and assists in skin flexibility, promoting pleasant touch, smoothness, and softness to the skin, while boosting the recovery of its natural moisture and elasticity.
  • It is highly beneficial for dry and damaged hair, promoting deep, long-lasting hydration.
