Growing wild in the eastern sub-region of the Brazilian Amazonia, unrefined cupuaçu butter is a stable butter obtained from the fruit seed of the Cupuaçu tree. It has an earthy/acidic scent which does not overpower the final blend with other ingredients. Cupuaçu also contains a range of phytosterols (natural plant estrogens). Beneficial for dry damaged skin and hair, it acts as an emollient to confer softness and a conditioned feel on the skin - this is the rain forest’s answer to unrefined shea butter. 
The moisturising benefits help restore the skin’s natural humidity and elasticity. Reduces degeneration of skin cells and restores flexibility, moisture retention and elasticity to the skin
Cupuaçu butter can be used for lip balms, soaps, creams, hair products and body butters.

Please note that we sell our range of butters by weight. Since this butter is not re-melted for sale, we use slightly bigger jars - eg. you would receive a 50g butter in a 125ml jar, a 100g butter in a 250ml jar .....

Our purchase of cupuaçu butter from remote indigenous communities throughout the Amazon River basin area helps to preserve the natural habitat and directly improves local economic conditions and sustainability.
