Cupuacu Butter is considered one of the most hydrating natural ingredients in the world. Found in Brazil proximate to the Amazonian Basin, Cupuacu Butter is made from the pulp of the Cupuacu (Theobroma grandiflorum) tree’s melon-sized fruit. The pulp is whitish in color and is noted to smell like a combination of sweet pineapple with subtle undertones of rich cocoa. It is said to be fully-loaded with antioxidants, essential fatty acids, polyphenols and valuable nutrients that promote several aspects of health. According to research, Cupuacu Butter can help the skin retain more than double its normal amount of water, which promotes supple, plump and healthier looking skin. This pale yellow butter contains high levels of beneficial triglycerides that help restore skin’s natural moisture balance. It is also believed that Cupuacu Butter stimulates the underlying lipids, restoring elasticity and potentially improving skin’s ability to heal. It is said to contain B-complex vitamins (including niacin), as well as vitamins A and C, amino acids, selenium and magnesium.
