Cupuacu butter originates from the Amazon Rainforest in South America. Natives widely use the Cupuacu tree and its delicious, chocolaty-smelling fruit. The fruit falls freely from the trees during the heavy rainy season, and its seeds are cold-pressed to form Cupuacu butter for commercial sale and are used worldwide. The Cupuacu fruit is highly creamy in nature and the butter that is derived by grinding its seeds is full of antioxidants and vitamins that work wonders for the hair, skin, and body. Its high phytosterol content helps treat damaged and dry skin by enhancing collagen production. Cupuacu butter also stabilizes emulsions and is known as a vegan alternative to beeswax in DIY beauty products.
