Babassu Oil is solid at room temperature. Since its consistency is similar to a vegetable butter, it is sometimes referred to as Babassu Butter. Babassu Oil is expeller pressed from the kernels of the babassu palm tree. The tree is native to Brazil and serves as an important economic resource for Brazil. When the nuts ripen and fall to the ground, the kernels are gathered and cracked open by "babassu breakers" - women who crack open the nuts. The meat is then removed and pressed. The properties of Babassu Oil are similar to Coconut Oil. Both oils are used in many of the same industries. Babassu Oil is high in lauric acid and melts at around 76 degrees F or upon contact with the skin. In skin care, Babassu Oil is used for its soothing, protective and emollient properties. Babassu Oil penetrates quickly and does not leave a greasy after feel. It works well in body butters, massage butters, hair products, creams, lotions and lip balms.

Comments: This oil is the business. I mix it with a blend of other oils and butters that I use. Adding this oil to my special blends for my hair butter made a great difference in the texture of my hair. It is is naturally dry but with the addition of this oil, my problem has now been solved. Will order the largest quantity available next time I order which will be withing the next month.

Comments: I repurchased this item again, love it. It is very moisturizing and blends well in my butters. It is lighter and less greasy than coconut oil. Will buy again.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
