Babaçu Oil

Babaçu Oil is extracted from the almond-shaped nuts of the towering Babassu palm trees native to the Amazonian forest. Discovered in the 1800s, the fruit of the Babassu palm forms several clusters that bear 500 or so fruits that resemble small coconuts. To harvest this high-powered oil, the nut has to be extracted with meticulous care to ensure the enzymes acidify perfectly and the nutritional properties of the concentrate are activated.

Highly absorbent to the skin, this cold-pressed oil is rich in vitamin E, phytosterols, essential fatty acids and is prized for its gentle emulsifying, emollient and moisturizing properties that helps protect skin.
