Murumuru butter comes from the seeds of a palm tree growing in the Amazonian forest that can reach 10m high. The seeds are harvested after the fruit falls to the forest floor, without harming the tree or any surrounding plants. Murumuru butter is a semisolid fat rich in lauric, myristic and oleic fatty acids. It is a highly nutritive butter, restoring moisture and natural elasticity of the skin. As an excellent emollient it helps the skin to retain water by creating a protective film - ideal for dry skin. Our supplier works closely to the producers in Brazil, and has several sustainability projects in the Amazonian forest.
