Product description:

Explore the essence of the Amazon rainforest with Tucuma Butter, sourced from the resilient Astrocaryum vulgare tree, native to Pará, Brazil. Towering at heights of 10 to 15 meters with a trunk diameter of 10 to 20 centimeters, this tree produces bountiful fruit bunches containing 200 to 400 fruits each. Harvested between August and November, the seeds ultimately yield Tucuma Butter.


Tucuma Butter is rich in lauric and myristic acids. It acts as a potent emollient, deeply moisturizing the skin and fortifying hair fibers to prevent breakage. Its rapid absorption properties ensure quick hydration without leaving behind any greasy residue, making it an ideal ingredient for a wide range of skincare and haircare formulations. 


Tucuma Butter shines as a versatile and sustainable alternative to silicones. Its unique sensory profile, characterized by high spreadability and a light, dry-touch texture, offers a sensory experience akin to silicone-based products without the associated concerns for skin health and environmental impact. 


The fast melting and texture allow for the development of light, yet rich and moisturising formulations on an all-natural basis. Whether incorporated into skincare creams, makeup products, or haircare formulations, Tucuma Butter elevates the sensory experience while delivering unparalleled nourishment and protection. 


Through rigorous sensory analysis, Tucuma Butter has proven to match the performance of dimethicone, making it a compelling choice for formulators seeking natural alternatives without compromising on efficacy or sensory appeal. 


Embrace the beauty of the Amazon rainforest and experience the transformative power of Tucuma Butter in your skincare and haircare rituals. Join us in preserving the natural splendor of the Amazon while indulging in the luxurious benefits of Tucuma Butter.
