Murumuru Butter is pressed from the reddish-orange fruits of the Astrocaryum murumuru tree. This tall palm tree is native to Peru, Brazil and other regions of the Amazon. The fruit kernel yields a light yellow to light tan/brown butter depending on the amount of rain, soil properties as well as the level of  ripeness of the fruit when the butter is made,   similar in scent and taste of dry coconut and has the advantage of not becoming rancid easily, because it is rich in saturated short-chain fatty acids.

The quality and quantity of emolliency properties of  Murumuru butter is by far superior to tucumã kernel and it has the advantage of providing greater consistency because of its melting point (33 C), which is superior to that of the tucumã palm (30 ºC) and coconut palm (22.7 ºC). Murumuru butter has a low acidity (4% to 5%) which is great for using in products for sensitive skin and results in a extraordinary product when combined with other waxier butters.Murumuru butter is rich Vitamin A and C and omega 3 and 6.
