Tucuma Butter

Posted on





INCI name: Astrocaryum tucuma butter




Tucuma butter is cold-pressed from the seeds of the tucuma palm, which grows in Brazil. It is high in lauric, myristic and oleic acids and vitamin A. Tucuma butter is emollient, softening, antioxidant and protective.


Add tucuma butter to skin care preparations at percentages of up to 20% (creams and lotions); 100% (balms); 15% (sodium soaps); 5% (hair conditioners). The high lauric and myristic acid content of tucuma butter will enhance the lathering ability of sodium soaps.
