  • Murumuru Butter Virgin
    • New!
    Choose the product options first The product is unavailable in the catalog

     Murumuru butter has some particularly notable benefits for hair and skin surpassing what shea butter offers. 

    It is called the "vegetable silicone" for its ability to perfectly replace mineral silicone in skin and hair formulations. 

    One of the most significant differences between the two kinds of butter is their origins. Shea butter is a fat that comes from the nut of the African shea tree, while murumuru butter comes from the seeds that grow on the murumuru palm tree in the Amazonian rainforest of Brazil.

    Common Uses:  Though solid at room temperature, it will melt on contact with the skin. It is used in formulations that help the skin recover its natural moisture content. This butter has lower recommended values for use in formulations.

    INCI: Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter

    Country of Origin:  Brazil

     Soluble in alcohol and oils.  Insoluble in water.
     

    Recommended Usage:
     Lotions & Creams: .5 - 8 %
     Balms: .5 – 100 %
     Bar Soaps: .5 - 2 %
     Hair Conditioners: .5 – 8 %

    When adding butter to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm them until the texture can be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle your melted butter to fully incorporate. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon per pound (15 g / 500 g). As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab-scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.

    Shelf Life: Store in cool temperatures (below 25 °C) away from light and moisture in an air-tight container. The product will become liquid above ambient temperatures (e.g., 36 °C), but will re-solidify upon cooling without affecting functionality. This butter has a shelf-life of one year when stored proper

For creams and lotions, the amount used is 5-7% in hair products, 5-10% in creams, in depilatories from 15-20%, and in soaps 10-20%.

    Consistency: Liquid at about 25°C, solid at about 2°C. The product can be placed in a hot water bath for a few minutes to allow for easy pouring.

    Absorption: Much like oat kernel oil, it has a silky feel and moderate speed of absorption.

    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.

    Kokum is a relatively hard butter that does not apply well as a “stand alone” application. It is most suitable for being blended with other ingredients to make it more pliable when you are developing exquisite body care products. Please note that Kokum butter by nature is a dry and flaky butter. This dry and flaky appearance causes many to think that the butter has gone bad, but this is a natural characteristic of Kokum butter. It has little to no scent.

    EXTRACTION METHOD Expeller pressed Refine

    Melting Point:   90-104 ° F

     SUGGESTED USE Cosmetic use only

    SHELF LIFE:  2 years from the date of purchase under proper storage conditions.

    Our Kokum butter is derived from the Garcinia tree and is expeller pressed and refined. This naturally white butter is often used as a substitute for Cocoa butter due to its uniform triglyceride composition. It’s commonly used as a thickener for lotions, creams and body butters, as well as soaps, cosmetics, and toiletries.
