Murumuru butter is extracted from the seed kernels of the murumuru palm tree native to the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. It yields a white to cream-colored butter with a natural pleasant nutty aroma. Murumuru butter has a firm and almost waxy like “feel” at room temperature. When softened, murumuru butter’s texture is very light. Upon application, murumuru glides onto skin then quickly absorbs, leaving a light sheen without a greasy residue. Murumuru butter is rich in vitamins A and C, antioxidants, calcium, phosphorus, and iron. It also contains a high composition of lauric fatty acid and myristic fatty acid.
