Ucuuba Butter

$37

Description:

Native to Central and South America, Ucuuba Butter is a natural butter cold-pressed from the seeds of the Ucuuba tree. The resulting butter is brown to yellow in colour and soft but dry in consistency. Ucuuba Butter is exceptionally rich in essential fatty acids and can be used to replenish, tone, and moisturise dry and mature skin. Ucuuba Butter is ideal for making pomades, creams, lotions, body butters, and other skin-care formulations. Due to its dark brown colour, this butter can be used to produce dark, richly coloured soaps, and it is sometimes used in candles made with vegetable-based waxes.

Note: When adding a butter to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm it until melted or very soft in texture and can be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle in your melted butter until fully incorporated and consistently smooth. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is one tablespoon per pound (15 ml/500 g). As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab-scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.
