Cupuaçu butter, when used correctly, helps to: delay premature aging of the skin, increase elasticity, hydrate, combat the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays, reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Cupuaçu’s incredible creaminess promotes a special softness and smoothness to your skin to boosts natural moisture and helps your skin appear more elastic. Cupuaçu is considered hydrophilic (water-loving) with a high capacity to retain water and prevent moisture loss.
Cupuaçu promotes smoothness and softness to the hair and skin increasing the natural moisture and elasticity. The butter has proven to be beneficial for brittle, dry hair due to its long-lasting hydration properties to replenish moisture while promoting a healthy shine. I suggest using it in creams and hair masks, letting it sit on the hair for about 15 to 30 minutes.
PHYSICAL-CHEMICAL DATA AND APPLICATIONS
The extracted butter from the cupuacu seeds offers fantastic properties for the cosmetic industry. The cupuacu butter is a triglyceride which presents a balanced composition of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, which gives the product a low melting point (approximately 30 °C) and an appearance of a soft solid that penetrates quickly in contact with the skin. The cupuacu butter posses a high capacity power to absorb water, approximately 240% higher than that of lanolin, acting as a plant-based substitute for it. It contains phytosterols (especially beta-sitosterol) that operate at the cellular level regulating the water balance and the activity of lipids of the superficial layer of the skin. The high power of absorbing water of the cupuacu butter can be attributed to the hydrogen bridges formed between the water molecules and phytosterols. Phytosterols have been used to treat dermatitis and disorders by stimulating the healing process.
