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.
