Botanical Name: Orbignya oleifera

Extraction Method: Cold Pressed

Processing Type: Refined

Obtained From: Kernels

Origin: Netherlands

Description: Babassu is obtained from the kernels of the Babassu palm which is found in the southern regions of Brazil. Babassu Carrier Oil contains a high content of lauric and myristic acids which have melting points relatively close to the body temperature. This oil is refined, making it a wonderful addition to cosmetic products. Babassu Carrier Oil has similar properties as Coconut Oil and is increasingly used as a substitute.

Color: White solid oil.

Aromatic Description: Babassu Carrier Oil has very little scent characteristic of most carrier oils.

Common Uses: Babassu Carrier Oil is a great emollient beneficial for both dry and oily skin. It gently moisturizes the skin without contributing to an oily sheen. It can be used in many skin care products such as soaps, creams, milks, lip balms, and hair care products.

Consistency: Solid at room temperature. Product can be placed in a water bath to liquefy.

Absorption: Absorbs into skin at average speed, slight oil feeling left on skin.

Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for current Best Before Date.

Cautions: None Known.

Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool, dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.

I have been using this oil in my hair conditioner for 2 months and it leaves my natural curly hair soft, manageable and moisturized. I will recommend this oil oil for hair products.

Babassu oil is an amazing one. I often use it instead of coconut oil and depending on the formula, I like it better than coconut oil. My only problem is that it comes in a bottle. I wish it came in a container like butters.

I purchased NDA Babassu oil a month ago and used it to moisturize my very dry and chemically damaged hair. To my surprise, this oil works so well compared to other oils i have used. It does not weigh my hair down at all. My two daughters who also have dry hair, tried my babassu oil now mixed with NDA Spanish Rosemary and South African Lavender essential oils. They LOVE it! We now cant live without it. I just purchased a 4 litre worth of Babassu oil which has just arrived yesterday. I also made an intense hair conditioner with Babassu oil using Susan Barclay Nichols' recipe. What a difference it makes!! I definitely give this high quality oil a five star! I look forward trying Babassu in CP soaps. My only wish is that the Babassu oil comes in an easier container to scoop with a spoon since the oil is solid. I have to warm up the bottle in hot water before it melts and can be poured out.

I love babassu for my cp soaps, it makes my soaps hard and is a good option for those who soap palm free like I do. First time I buy it, only bought 1000 ml to give a try, then I wanted to buy a bigger batch but now only 473 ml is available. Hope it comes back fast, I want it in all my soaps now!

Oh well, I am a little bit dissapointed in this babssu oil - it has no scent. I have used urefind babssu oil before and it was fabulous, amazing scent. This refind babssu oil will go well into salves that have no scent.

New Directions provides a high quality Babassu Seed Oil is a wonderful addition to soap and lotions because it is suited for oily, dry, eczema, itchy and inflamed skin. I add it to my eczema salves, body butters and creams to give them a rich velvety feel and to benefit from the healing properties. I highly recommend New Directions Babassu oil it is priced fairly and is of great quality
