Cupuacu Butter, Cosmetic Natural Butters
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 acts at the cellular level regulating the balance and activity of the lipids of the stratum corneum. 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.
This product is ultra refined.
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.

When adding butters to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm them until the texture can be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle your melted butter to fully incorporate. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon per pound. As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.
