Cupuaçu, a native of Amazonia forest, is a small tree that is 4 to 8 meters  (when cultivated) or up to 20 m high (in growing in the wild). It belongs to the same family as cacao. 

Cupuacu fruit is very popular in the north of Brazil, they use the pulp in juices, ice cream, mousse and so much more. In general, seeds are a byproduct of processing the pulp and are underutilized and thrown away. However, because there is a growing interest of the cosmetic industry on this butter, the pulp industries and cooperatives are beginning to separate and process the seeds in larger quantities. Interesting fact: we can get chocolate from cupuacu too! It is called "copulate".

*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.

When we consume Amazonia's sustainable, non-timber-products, we give the local people an alternative to logging and farming which are the two largest responsible factors of the deforestation of such an important ecosystem.

Rainforest Chica's products are wild harvested or ethically farmed. With constant focus on sustainability and fair treatment of harvester, farmers, transporters and producers.
