Check out the beauty that is cupuacu butter….
Theobroma grandiflorum (cupuacu) is a tree from the tropical areas of Bolivia, Colombia, Brazil and Peru. (It’s actually the national fruit of Brazil.) Each tree produces about 20-30 very heavy fruits containing 30-50 seeds surrounded by a lot of creamy yellowish pulp that has a lovely nutty aroma. This pulp provides the high fat cupuacu butter and contains some of the most powerful, antioxidants around! It surpasses beloved hydrating butters such as shea butter with its unmatched ability to retain moisture and is softer, creamier and more easily absorbed than cocoa butter. In addition to repairing your skin’s moisture barrier, cupuacu butter will also improve the elasticity and firmness of your skin, keeping it looking and feeling so much smoother and more supple. Due to its low melting point, this special butter absorbs quickly into your skin without a greasy or heavy feel, which makes it perfect for a multi-tasker like the beauty balm.
