Wild-harvested Brazilian cupuacu seed butter is the foundation of my balm products. I chose it for it's ability to absorb water and retain moisture in skin. Cupuacu butter feels smooth and absorbs quickly. A cousin of cacao, it has a subtle fruity, chocolaty aroma. The cupuacu butter I use comes from Rainforest Chica, her ingredients are the best and they are sustainably sourced and fairly traded.
