The nuts are harvested between January and May and cold pressed + filtered to yield a cream coloured butter. Unrefined murumuru butter has a very impressive content of lauric acid (closer in composition to coconut oil). A solid butter, murumuru melts at 33°C and it is also rich in myristic acid.

Unrefined murumuru butter has a silky texture with protective soothing properties for skin and hair to help prevent loss of moisture.  

Our purchase of murumuru butter from remote indigenous communities throughout the Amazon River basin area helps to preserve the natural habitat and directly improves local economic conditions and sustainability.

Unless otherwise stated, our exotic butters are natural and unrefined.

NATURAL + UNREFINED:  We work directly with cooperatives and artisanal producers who process our range of pure natural raw butters without the use of chemicals.  Some of these are organic in nature and filtered for use retaining the natural characteristic scent and quality. 


We sell our range of exotic butters by weight. Since most of these butters are not re-melted for sale, we use slightly bigger jars.

UNDERSTANDING BUTTERS: Most butters and oils are made up of two components - olein (liquid) and stearin (stearic). This is why some butters easily melt depending on the amount of olein and some solidify under colder temperatures depending on the amount of stearin. This does not affect the product in anyway.

Butters are mainly naturally occurring. However, there are new butters emerging within the cosmetic industry due to market trends. These butters are vegetable oils which are hydrogenated. Hydrogenation yields a saturated butter and these include but not limited to Almond butter, Avocado butter, Coffee butter, Hemp butter, Macadamia butter, Olive butter, Ricebran butter, ..... the list goes on

Naturally occurring butter on the other hand are normally pressed from seeds and do not go through any hydrogenation:
Cocoa, Cupuaçu, Kombo, Mango, Murumuru, Shea, etc.
These are all solid at room temperature depending on both the palmitic and stearic acid content and need heat to melt.

Cocoa butter has 33% stearic and 25% palmitic acid compared to shea butter with 40% stearic and 4% palmitic acid. Looking at these two profiles, cocoa butter is more of a solid butter than shea which makes the latter more easy to apply.  However, due to the high stearic content of shea, the butter becomes quite solid in very cold temperatures.

Unlike most butters, the texture of shea changes during the year.  Much softer in summer and much harder in winter. This does not affect the natural properties of the butter.

ONE OF MY FAVORITES

Murumuru is one of my favorites. Great quality and I love the results of my hair and skin using this butter.

Excellent quality

Excellent quality product.

I use this as part of my skincare regimen and have noticed visibly clearer and blemish free skin.

It’s hard so you need to add natural oils to soften it. Also skin should be damp in order to lock in moisture.

High quality

Really like this product very high quality, easy to apply. Love the natural smell. Makes my dry skin look radiant and smooth.

When applied to body area you can tell the difference within seconds.

Because its unrefined and in its natural form, it does crumble a bit when applying to skin, but it's okay because product is of high quality and does it's job. Love it!!
