Tucuma is a palm tree that produces small hard fruits with a big seed. The pulp is very popular in the north of Brazil, where they make even sandwiches from it.

Tucuma butter is made from the seeds and the oil from the pulp.

This oil is very rich in beta-carotene,  contains high levels of vitamins A and  omega 3, 6 and 9.

It also acts as an inhibitor of melanin biosynthesis, being used on the treatment of melasma and sun and age spots.

Tucuma oil is an amazing product with many uses, but the use of the oil by itself is a little hard for its color and texture (very red and very greasy), even for sunbathing I recommend mixing Tucuma Oil with a lighter oil as Brazil Nut. For use direct on skin it works better for olive and dark skins.

Works very well for thicker and damaged hair, not indicated for bleached blond hair.

Tucuma Palm is a cousin of the murumuru palm, is also native to the Amazonian region, possibly to the state of Pará, where it has its center of distribution, and reaches French Guiana and Suriname. It is a characteristic palm of terra firme (dry land), low vegetation cover, or even open fields. There are two species of tucumã in the Amazon, tucumã-do-para (Astocaryum vulgare) and the tucumã-do-amazonas (Astrocaryum tucuma).

Locally the leaves provide a very resistant fiber, ideal for basketry, the seeds are used for artisan jewelry making and the fruits are consumed raw or in the form of a juice called "wine of tucumã,” which is mixed with water or made into an ice cream. The pulp is very nutritious containing one of the highest concentrations of provitamin A "beta-carotene" (52 milligrams per 100 g pulp).

*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.
