What are Favorite Lists?

Cupuacu Ultra Refined Butter is native to Brazil, and is extracted by cold pressing the seeds of the Cupuacu tree, which is commonly cultivated throughout the Amazonian basin. The Cupuacu butter contains phytosterols, an unsaponifiable component that helps to slows down the deterioration of the skin.  Recent research studies have shown that Phytosterols help to promote the elasticity and suppleness of the skin. It is hard at room temperature and has a very thick and creamy consistency. Cupuacu butter also has a mild and sweet aroma to it.

Common Uses: Cupuacu Butter has a high capacity for water absorption, making it an excellent emollient, which can be used in body butters, creams, lotions, and foundations to prevent drying of the skin. It is a creamy butter, which reduces skin degeneration and assists in skin flexibility, promoting pleasant touch, smoothness and softness to the skin, while boosting the recovery of its natural moisture and elasticity. Cupuacu Butter is also highly beneficial for dry and damaged hair, promoting deep, long lasting hydration. Its high water absorption capacity also makes it an effective alternative to lanolin for vegetable-base products. A member of the chocolate family, Cupuacu Butter does not contain theobromin and can be used by anyone to whom stimulants are forbidden.

Recommended Usage:
Lotions & Creams: 3% - 5%
Balms: 5% - 100%
Bar Soaps: 3% - 6%
Hair Conditioners: 2% - 5%

Shelf Life: This butter should be stored in a cool dark place and has a shelf-life of approximately 1 year when stored properly.

Love this butter! I usually use Shea butter but have been experimenting with new oils and butters from NDA. With this, I have definitely found a new staple. I found it better for body butters as opposed to hair because it’s a drier butter. Not as oily as shea or mango butter. That being said it’s ultimately all about your formula. Overall, great butter!

I love this butter, it adds a beautifully smooth creamy texture to balms and lotions. Similar hardness to cocoa butter but much silkier feel. Gorgeous!!

Disappointed that this is still not available - stalling on placing my order until it is in stock but now the date has been moved again.... not sure why. Use a small % in CP soap and love in lip balms. Hope it's available soon.

This is an exceptionally smooth butter with a delicious scent. The silicone-like feel it offers is a great addition to balms, creams or serums. Cupuacu is currently taking over my line of products and I don't think I'll ever go back to shea! Although it's about 5 times the price, it's absolutely worth it.

Fabulous butter! Very emollient, like shea, but it binds around the skin creating a soft shield from the elements - great for Canadian winter! Absorbs nicely too - very happy customer. I usually prefer materials that are less refined but I'm okay with it here..

I'm jsut dabbling in making my own body butters now that I'm pregnant. I used this in 25% of my butter recipe- I think that was too generous, and made for a little bit oilier formulation than I wanted.... however, SUPER happy with the quality of this butter, and it has very little smell at all. Will use this in smaller quantities in my next "experiment".

My apologies. I did not realize NDA carries the "ultra refined" version now. I have the previous unrefined one (i.e. full aroma). The properties would remain the same for refined one but minimal smell. A few minutes ago, I thought that I reviewed the unrefined product. I will repurchase and try this unrefined one .....which I expect would have the same properties (since NDA only carries the best quality items). I mentioned that my second favourite butter is Ucuuba a few minutes ago. I misspelled that word in last review. I also have a review on Ucuuba.
