Even those of us who don’t scan the ingredient lists of beauty products probably know (and have experienced) the moisturizing benefits of shea butter and cocoa butter. Some aficionados may also be familiar with coconut butter. Murumuru butter is another hydrating butter, but it is likely one you’re not as familiar with — or think that you’re not. If you were to actually check the labels on your skin care products, hair products and even makeup, you may find the nourishing ingredient listed. That’s why it’s about time murumuru butter got some proper recognition.
Murumuru butter is an ingredient that’s lurking in a lot of beauty products because of its emollient texture and hydrating benefits. It’s a non-fragrant vegetable fat that’s extracted from the seeds of the Astrocaryum murumuru, a plant that’s native to the Amazon rainforest in Brazil, says dermatologist Dr. Heather Rogers.
Wondering what separates it from all of the other butters? Murumuru butter is special because it has a lower melting temperature than many other butters, transforming it into a glossy oil, says brand and product trainer at Lush North America Erica Vega. “Because it’s so melty, you can just use a little for light moisture or a lot for more of a body oil experience. It’s moisturizing, but never thick.” Suitable for all skin types, murumuru butter is also high in fatty acids and vitamin A, which help promote healthy cell function and prevent cell damage.
Instead of hoping beauty products have the moisturizing ingredient, let’s check the labels to ensure they do. Here, shop the best hair and skin products with moisturizing murumuru butter.
