The derived oil from cupuaçu seeds presents exceptional properties tailored for the cosmetic industry. Cupuaçu butter, a triglyceride with a meticulously balanced fusion of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, bestows the product with a remarkably low melting point (around 30°C). This attribute grants it a soft solid form that swiftly permeates upon skin contact.

Cupuaçu butter showcases an unparalleled water-absorption capacity, surpassing lanolin by a staggering 120%. This impressive trait positions it as a potent botanical substitute. Enriched with phytosterols, notably beta-sitosterol, it functions at a cellular level, adeptly regulating water equilibrium and lipid activity in the skin's outermost layer.

Its exceptional water absorption ability is owed to the formation of hydrogen bonds between water molecules and phytosterols, cementing its efficacy.

The Cupuacu Butter, in some batches, may present some small grains, just warm it up they will disappear.

Each of our oils, butters, and bioactive products arises from an unwavering extraction process of Amazonian plants, entirely devoid of chemical intervention (absolutely no chemical reagents or solvents employed). Through this meticulously chosen Cold Extraction technique, we retain the entire spectrum of bioactive compounds inherent in the raw constituents.

Our bioactives are derived from wild species that naturally flourish in the Amazon rainforest. These are extracted sustainably, without the utilization of pesticides or fertilizers. Additionally, our products are cruelty-free.

The product may be subject to variation in color, viscosity, and other factors depending on the harvesting and local temperature.
