Have you heard of murumuru butter? What about coconut, cocoa, or shea butter? We believe that in a few years, this term will be equally widespread in everyday conversations about skin and hair care products. Murumuru butter is a potent natural ingredient that is increasingly being used in the cosmetic industry. Although you may not have heard of it before, we believe you will remember this ingredient well once you learn about all its benefits. Let’s discover them below.
What Is Murumuru
Murumuru butter is derived from the seeds of the Murumuru tree (Astrocaryum Murumuru), a palm species that grows in the tropical forests of the Amazon in Brazil. The seeds of this palm have a very hard shell, and their core is extremely rich in nutrients – vitamins and healthy fatty acids. They are processed to obtain a buttery white or slightly yellowish mass with a mild, almost neutral scent.
This butter can be used in its raw state for intense hydration of the skin and hair. Also can be mixed with other ingredients to create different products. Since pure, unrefined murumuru butter is not cheap, it is most commonly added in a certain amount to skincare products for the face and body, as well as hair care and styling products.
