If you’ve ever used one of our tucuma butter products, you know it has almost magical moisturizing capabilities—soothing and softening for hours on end. What is tucuma butter and what makes it such an incredible moisturizer?
WHAT IS TUCUMA BUTTER?
Tucuma butter is cold-pressed from the large, edible seeds of a palm tree. Tucuma seed butter is a true triple threat: it’s packed with nutrients that moisturize, regenerate and protect—making it ideal for combatting dry skin in winter.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TUCUMA BUTTER FOR THE SKIN?
Tucuma butter is packed with:
- Vegetable silicone, an oil that acts as a barrier to lock in moisturizer
- Fatty acids such as omega 9 that repair and rebuild skin cells
- Mega fatty acids (lauric, myristic and oleic acids) that hydrate and smooth the surface of the skin, and even bring anti-inflammatory action to calm redness and sensitivity
- Vitamin A, an antioxidant polyphenol that can battle free radicals after exposure to the sun, pollution and toxins (like makeup)
What does tucuma butter smell like? Our Om team gets asked this a lot, and the answer is: it’s a scentless body butter, which is one of the reasons why it works so well as a base ingredient in natural skincare.
