Our MURUMURU BUTTER is obtained from the Kernels of a palm-tree in the Amazonian rainforest in Brazil. The red fruits contain a yellowish pulp with a very hard seed, full of oil.
MURUMURU BUTTER is extremely stable due to its high amount in saturated fatty acid. This property, together with its particular silky texture, makes it ideal for cosmetics formulations. Besides, its high shine is very interesting for natural make up and lip glosses.
