Cupuacu Butter is an incredibly soft, smooth, creamy butter ready to melt right into your skin. This is a wild harvested Brazilian butter made from the Cupuacu seeds. This butter is so luxurious it is ready to use just as it is!
Cupuacu Butter is perfect for use in body butters, lip treatments, and body moisturizers. You can add this to any whipped body butter or lotion formula. Cupuacu is a very creamy butter, which means when added into body butters and lotions it has great skin-feel and leaves a high level of hydration on the skin. Cupuacu Butter is also an excellent water barrier, meaning the skin will remain feeling soft throughout the day and not just wash away.
Cupuacu Butter is high in plant sterols, meaning it gives your finished product all the lovely plant power. Phytosterols are incredibly nourishing for the skin and have been proven to help improve elasticity and smoothness of skin.
The softness and creaminess of Virgin Cupuacu Butter also makes it a great addition to hair care products, especially conditioner bars and hair treatments. If you looking to create a line for dry, damaged, treated hair add in Cupuacu Butter. It will help retain the moisture, creating softer, smoother hair and allowing hair to retain moisture even after washing.
Cupuacu Butter is so hydrating it is an excellent vegan alternative to lanolin.
