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: 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.

Comments: I bought this as it's similar to coconut oil but not as greasy. Finally had a chance to make something with it and just love my new lotion. This will definitely be a staple for me.

Customer Testimonial

"I really feel that your company is the best that I have dealt with as far as service, quality and price. It means a great deal to me to be able to buy just a small quantity to experiment with and then to save on larger quantities when I have perfected my recipe. I always find your oils superior in quality and freshness to others I have purchased elsewhere."
