Murumuru Butter

Murumuru Butter is pressed from the reddish-orange fruits of the Astrocaryum murumuru tree. This tall palm tree is native to Brazil and other regions of the Amazon.

Natural Sourcing Murumuru Butter is a versatile vegetable butter that possesses a firm yet somewhat creamy texture. The solidity can vary depending on the temperature stored at, but in warmer room temperature conditions, it can be easily scooped from the container. It melts upon contact with the skin.

Natural Sourcing Murumuru Butter is carefully stored and packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this premium quality, nutritive butter.


Uses:

It is a soothing, protective and nourishing addition for products intended to moisturize and protect all skin types, most especially dry, cracked and problem skin.
