    Applications and Uses of Natural Oils and Butters

    Natural butters and oils are derived from extracts of natural, sustainable sources. These supplies are rich in nutrients, so they offer numerous benefits when they're added to skin and hair care products. Your final product will be more soothing, moisturizing and beneficial to its users.

    We offer a vast variety of natural oils and butters with numerous personal care applications, including:
    • Acai oil: Acai oil is a greenish liquid derived from the berries of Brazil's acai palm tree (Euterpe oleracea). Its richness in vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and antioxidants make it ideal for soaps, anti-aging creams, moisturizers, hair repair serums, shampoos, conditioners, face masks and similar cosmetics.
    • Andiroba oil: Andiroba (Carapa guianensis) is a tree species found in the Amazon region. Its leaves, bark and oil are often used to make medicine and treat arthritis, inflammation and muscle pain. Today, its oil is also commonly used in restorative creams, scalp treatments, soaps and anti-cellulite products due to its high concentration of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It can also promote hair growth and prevent the appearance of grey hairs.
    • Babacu oil: Babacu oil — commonly referred to as babassu oil — is a vegetable oil derived from the seeds of the babassu palm, located in the South American Amazon. This white or light yellow oil is well-known among skin care enthusiasts as a lightweight alternative to coconut oil for numerous cosmetic products. You can create refreshing natural lip balms, scalp treatments, conditioners, protective moisturizers and similar solutions with it.
    • Copaiba oil: Copaiba oil results from distilling copaiba — a resin produced as sap from South American trees in the Copaifera genus. Due to its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, copaiba oil is ideal for topical acne treatments and moisturizers. It also acts as a therapeutic aid in lotions, soaps and hair care products.
    • Cupuacu butter: Cupuacu butter is made from the seeds of the fruit of the cupuacu tree (Theobroma grandiflorum), located in the northern Amazon rainforest. Research shows the butter has numerous antioxidants and nutrients well-suited for use in skin care and hair products. The natural butter makes a great lip balm, skin moisturizer, anti-aging toner and similar goods.
    • Murumuru butter: Throughout the Amazon region — close to the Amazon River — grows the murumuru palm (Astrocaryum murumuru). Oil from the palm's almonds appears and feels like a white or yellowish butter. Many hair and skin care specialists laud this murumuru butterfor its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. As a natural emollient, it acts as an excellent moisturizer in creams, lotions, face masks and restorative hair products.
    • Eco scrub murumuru: Processing the murumuru palm's kernel cake results in an exfoliating scrub that provides all the benefits of murumuru butter. This light brown scrub is ideal for face and body gels and liquid soaps, and it's lusciously rich in myristic and lauric fatty acids.
    • Pracaxi oil: Obtained from the seeds of the Pentaclethra macroloba tree native to northern South America, Pracaxi oil contains numerous fatty acids that have positive effects on hair and skin. The oil is often used in hair treatments, scar creams and gels, lotions and soaps.
    • Ucuuba butter: The ucuuba (Virola surinamensis) is found in Brazil's marshier areas. When the seeds are cold-pressed, it creates a waxy dark yellow or brown butter that's rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins A and C. You can use Ucuuba butter to create ointments, bar soaps, lotions, body butters and scalp treatments.
