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 Fahrenheit 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 is wonderful in soaps and is also well suited for use in body butter, massage butter, hair, cream, lotion and lip balm formulations.

Comments: Feels like a butter and once on the skin, it acts like coconut oil. I really like the texture, and it feels great in my hair.

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.
