Description

Growing wild in Northeast Brazil, babassu is a palm tree, which can grow to a height of 20 meters. The fruit of the babassu palm forms several clusters that bear 500 or so fruits which look like small coconuts. The unrefined oil has a cream coloured tinge with a wonderful nutty scent and is solid at room temperatures (below 24°C), but melts readily upon contact with the skin. It has been prized in South America for its great moisturizing quality and beneficial effect on the skin. A great coconut substitute, it saponifies easily and yields a mild soap with good lather. It is a superior emollient, beneficial for both dry and oily complexions, gently moisturizing the skin without contributing to an oily sheen, often to treat dry, itchy and inflamed skin.  

Our babassu oil is unrefined. It is freed of dirt particles by decanting and a mechanical fine filter and retains its full color, the great smell and all nourishing properties of Babassu oil. It is certified organic and the nuts are opened by hand. About 90% can be removed from the shell in one go, so the oil has a long shelf life unlike oil from mechanically opened nuts. As the oil is completely natural (unrefined) the color and smell can be slightly different depening the month of harvest, but this is like any other natural product like wine or olive oil

Suggested use:

* Light-weight oil, which doesn't clog the pores - to nourish the skin. It soaks in fast and hydrates, locking the moisture in. Oil with a very mild scent.
* Mixes well with essential oils - suitable for use in different homemade cosmetic products, such as creams and lotions.
* Babassu oil softens, repairs and restores the shine of the hair. It nourishes the scalp as well.
* Promotes healthy nails and cuticles - strengthens the nails and softens the cuticles.
* Topically, you can use small amounts of babassu oil to treat dandruff, deodorize smelly coat, help heal small wounds and skin irritations.
