All Natural ~ Virgin Cupuacu Butter - (kuh-poo-kuh)

Cupuacu butter is becoming a popular ingredient in skin care products and after reading and learning more about it, we’ve decided to use it in some of our formulations, so we want to tell you more about it. Cupuacu, is also known as Cupuassu butter, it’s botanical name being Theobroma grandiflorun. It is a fruit that comes from the Brazilian Amazon rainforest and very closely related to cocoa. The pulp that surrounds the seed is used to produce juice, jam and ice-cream, while the seeds are pressed to remove the oily butter.There are a number of reasons that cupuacu butter makes a great ingredient in skin care. This exotic plant butter is a very rich emollient that is high in phenolic compounds such as proanthocyanidins that protect the skin from oxidative damage. Cupuacu butter contains flavonoinds including theograndins. These antioxidants offer potential protection against oxidative stress associated with chronic diseases and premature aging. It is also high in phytosterols, especially beta-sitosterol.It is a soft butter that melts into the skin. Oleic acid is the main fatty acid found in cupuacu butter at 30-43% followed by lauric acid at about 25%.Cupuacu butter is used to prevent dry skin, wrinkles, and restore flexibility and elasticity to the skin. Importantly, cupuacu butter has a high capacity for holding water. In fact, it can hold up to 4 times its weight in water making it great to help hydrate skin. Because of this it makes a good substitute for lanolin.

Virgin Cupuacu Butter, also referred to by the botanical name Theobroma grandiflorum, is a soft butter produced via cold-pressed extraction of the seeds harvested from the Cupuacu tree, native to the Amazon Rainforest. It carries an earthy, characteristic aroma with an off-white to yellowish appearance. Its natural emollient and superior moisturizing properties have increased its popularity throughout the cosmetic industry, making this a highly sought-after ingredient in haircare formulations and skincare products. Unrefined cupuacu butter is often found in high quality shampoo and conditioner brands, lip balms, topical body butters and various skin applications. The aroma of unrefined cupuacu butter may vary in strength from batch to batch.
