Bacuri Butter originates from the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest. This beautiful dark brown butter comes from the nut of the Bucuri Tree.
Bacuri gives your skin a beautiful natural glow. It evens out the skins appearance and with long term use, it helps to diminish the appearance of hyper-pigmention and scars.
Bacuri has a very high absorption rate due to its high level of tripalmitin (50 to 55%) and a high level of palmitoleic fatty acid compared to the other butters which makes it a fantastic emollient.
Bacuri Butter is antibacterial & antifungal. It is effective in reducing rashes, acne and has a high methionine content which is an essential amino acid that plays a critical role in the growth of nails and hair.
In Brazil this butter is widely used to help with various skin conditions and as a massage butter for arthritis, rheumatism and muscle pain.
Unrefined Bacuri Butter has an unusual scent. Some describe it as the smell of forest soil, earthy and mossy. Bacuri's color varies from lighter to very dark brown and the texture can be very smooth to hard and crumbly.
