Cupuacu Butter

Posted on


INCI name: Theobroma Grandiflora Seed Butter



Cupuacu butter is cold-pressed from the seeds of the Cupuacu tree, which grows in northern Brazil. It is high in oleic, stearic, palmitic, arachidic and linoleic acids and is highly moisturising, emollient, anti-inflammatory and protective. Skin elasticity and water absorption are improved with the use of Cupuacu butter.


Cupuacu butter is a good stabiliser in creams and lotions and improves spreadability. Cocoa butter (Theobroma Cacao) is extracted from one of the Cupuacu tree’s relatives, however Cupuacu butter is softer, creamier and does not contain caffeine.


Cupuacu butter is most useful in hair and skin care preparations for dry and cracked skin, aging skin, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and dry hair.


For those people that wish to avoid animal products, Cupuacu butter provides a good substitute for anhydrous lanolin. Add it to skin care creams, lotions, hair treatments and conditioners, body balms and butters, lip balms and lipsticks.
