Muru Muru Seed Butter
Muru Muru (Astrocaryum murumuru) Butter
Raw ingredient. Butter obtained from the cold pressing of wild crafted seeds. Natural product. No additives.
Murumuru butter is rich in lauric, myristic and oleic acid. The fruit contains an odorless and tasteless butter and has a low rancidification index , due to its rich in saturated short-chain fatty acids such as lauric and myristic acid.
The quality of murumuru butter is similar to coconut oil, but provides greater consistency due to its melting point (33 C), which is superior to coconut palm (22.7 ºC). It is possible to mix it with other vegetable butters that have a lower melting point.
It can also be used to partially replace cocoa butter in chocolate applications, providing a firmer consistency in higher temperature environments. Its low acidity value (4% to 5%), when made from fresh seeds, reduces the cost of refination.
- The use of murumuru butter can benefit the skin and hair. Murumuru butter is a highly nourishing emollient and moisturizer for hair, and helps the skin recover to its natural moisture content and elasticity. Murumuru butter is used in small proportions in shampoos (0.5% to 1%) and formulas for conditioners, creams and lotions, soaps, lipsticks and deodorants (0.5% to 8%).
