Murumuru Butter'saroma is similar to coconut oil- light, sweet and slightly nutty. The most notable and unique property of this magical butter is its high lauric acid content (47%). Lauric acid is a rare medium-chain fatty acid that is found in human breast milk as well as in coconut oil. It penetrates into the deeper layers of your skin, stimulating the performance of collagen and elastin cells which repair damage caused by stress, sun exposure and dryness, and helps to restore skin elasticity and texture, giving long lasting protection and staying power . A truly magical, exquisite botanical butter.
