Murumuru Butter


The murumuru palm is native to the Amazon rainforest of Brazil, where it grows preferentially in swampy areas. It bears edible fruits that the tree drops independently when they are ripe. Murumuru fat is extracted from oily seeds, which are used in the cosmetic as well as in the food industry.

Properties:  The creamy whitish Murumuru butter is characterized by a high content of myristic, lauric, and oleic acids, which makes it difficult to become rancid. It has a firmer consistency compared to coconut fat, as its melting point is 32°C. In addition to fatty acids, it is rich in vitamins, and minerals, and with its anti-inflammatory properties, it moisturizes and softens.  It can especially help allergic, sensitive, and irritated skin.

:  It has a wide range of uses. As a cosmetic raw material, the fat is processed into moisturizers, lotions, balms, and hair care products. It gives especially dry and dull hair more moisture, shine, and combability.
