Have you heard of Cupuacu Butter? Cupuacu Butter is from the Cupuacu tree that grows in the Amazon rainforest by cold-pressing the seeds of the fruit. It is related to the cacao tree and has been used to make white chocolate. It is also very nourishing and a soft emollient when used in body care products.
Cupuacu butter is excellent to seal in moisture in the hair.
We use this butter in our Persian Apple & mango Hair Butter
Cupuacu butter provides superior hair hydration and skin hydration. Cupuacu butter is high in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and phytosterols, a compound found in plants, that has been found to have anti-aging properties and is highly nourishing. Cupuacu butter can be used to treat dry and damaged skin as it encourages new collagen production. Cupuacu butter is also very hydrating and is able to retain water in your skin.
Although shea butter is a favorite in the natural hair community, a lot of naturalistas tend to dislike the smell or are allergic to it. Cupuacu butter has a sweet smell and can be more moisturizing than shea butter due to its hydrophilic (water-loving) properties. It is also lighter than shea butter. Hence it will not weigh down fine or thin strands.

SUMMERTIME WARNING: Butters may melt during shipping.
Natural butters have tendency to turn in to grainy texture. This does NOT mean the butter has gone bad or turn rancid. When a butter is heated the fatty acids separate from one another. Then if it cools slowly, these fractions stay separate causing the butter to go grainy. (This happens during shipping in warm weather). Gently melt the butter, and then rapid cooling or freezing may help to reduce/remove graininess.
