Cupuacu Butter is extracted by cold pressing the seeds of the Cupuacu tree, Theobroma grandiflorum, which is commonly cultivated throughout the Brazilian Amazonian basin. The Cupuacu butter contains phytosterols, an unsaponifiable component that helps to slows 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.
Common Uses: Cupuacu Butter has a high capacity for water absorption, making it an excellent emollient, which can be used in body butters, creams, lotions, and foundations to prevent drying of the skin. It is a creamy butter, which 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. Cupuacu Butter is also highly beneficial for dry and damaged hair, promoting deep, long lasting hydration. Its high water absorption capacity also makes it an effective alternative to lanolin for vegetable-base products. A member of the chocolate family, Cupuacu Butter does not contain theobromin and can be used by anyone to whom stimulants are forbidden.
