Bacuri butter is very popular in the north of Brazil, it comes from the seeds of a beloved local fruit with a rich pulp, smell and taste (I could taste it in my mouth for hours).

Being a very dark butter with intense scent, it sometimes is received with some resistance by my costumers, that is, before they completely fall in love with it. For its color it will transfer and stain light fabrics before fully absorbed.

Bacuri butter has a high absorption rate, due to its high level of tripalmitin (50% to 55%), which penetrates the skin quickly. The high amount of fatty palmitoleic acid (5%), compared to other oils (less than or equal to 0.5 to 1.5%), makes the Bacuri butter a fantastic emollient, which can also be used as a moisturizing agent.

Bacuri is rich in Lysin and Methionine in northern Brazil it is used for many skin issues. It widely used to help reducing the appearance of blemishes, scarring and stretch marks.

Bacuri is native to the state of Pará (eastern amazon forest). This tree can reach 25 m (82') in height and 1.5 m in diameter. It grows on terra firme (dry land) and the timber is yellow, compact, resistant to rotting, and therefore is used in the construction of boats. The fruit of this species, which weighs 250 g on average, is oval and covered by a shell, which is 0.7 to 1.6 cm thick and 75% of the weight of the fruit. The edible part of the fruit is the endocarp, and represents 13% of the weight of the fruit. It is white, with a strong aroma and sweet taste, it is very popular in the prepation of sweets, ice cream and juices.
The fruit usually has 4 oily seeds, and when dried they contain 72% fat, which is resinous and dark brown to almost black.  It is estimated that an average tree will produce 400 fruits per year. The number of fruits produced per year varies. A year of high fruit production is succeeded by one, two, or three years of low production. 

*The Amazonian butters and oils have been tested by generations of rainforest's indigenous and ribeirinho people. They are used for cooking, baking, healing, moisturizing and protecting against the elements.
