Cupuacu Butter

(Pronounced: Coo-paa-sue)

Refined

Cupuacu Butter is obtained from the fruit seed of the cupuaçu tree (Theobroma grandiflorum) found growing wild in the eastern the Brazilian Amazonia. The seeds contain approximately 48% of a sweet-smelling “butter” which is stable and has a high capacity for water absorption, often being compared functionally with Lanolin. Cupuacu Butter is an excellent emollient for cosmetic formulations and may be used to prevent drying of the skin and development of wrinkles, to reduce degeneration of skin cells, and to restore flexibility, moisture retention ability and elasticity to the skin. Suggested uses for Cupuacu Butter include creams, lotions, balms, make-up foundations, bar soaps and massage creams.
