Featured Video Play Icon

In this video, I show how to make whipped Tucuma butter. Our Tucuma butter is cold pressed obtained from the seeds the Tucuma palm, a native of the Amazon rainforest. Tucuma butter is an exotic butter which is derived from tucuma palm seeds. Tucuma butter is found naturally in Brazil and has a lot of characteristics in common with Murumuru butter.
Tucuma butter has a glossy hydrating feel and work incredibly well as a hair product. It is easily absorbed into the hair shaft to effectively nourish and condition hair that is damaged due to too much processing. It revitalizes dull, frizzy, and dry hair.

It hydrates the skin thoroughly and works to keep the skin soft and supple. It can be used as a substitute to silicone found in skin and hair products. But it does not include the negative effects of artificial silicones. Tucuma is also packed with antioxidant polyphenols and contains lots of fatty acids. It is noted for its rich oleic acid content, it is also rich in Myristic and Lauric acids, a combination that gives it its amazing cell rebuilding/repair qualities.

A natural silicone alternative: Tucuma butter has a natural silicone feel and adds shine to the hair. It also deeply moisturizes skin and hair. You can substitute carrier oils and essential oils that you have available.
