Murumuru Body Butter

The Murumuru plant is found widely in the Amazon. The seeds are harvested from the fruit by the local community. The seeds contain approximately 40% fat. It is rich in tocopherols as well as being high in Lauric (C12:0) and Myristic acids (C14:0). Lauric acid has a high melting point, providing a firmer consistency perfect for body butter applications.
