Babassu Oil

Babassu Oil
Product Description

Babassu Oil is obtained from the fruit of the Brazilian babassu palm (Attalea speciosa, Orbignya speciosa). Each coconut-like fruit contains three to five seeds, which have an oil content of approx. 60 %. The babassu palm grows very slowly and only begins to produce fruit after 10 years, but will then continue to do so for nearly 200 years.

Babassu Oil is high in lauric acid (C12:0) and myristic acid (C14:0) and consists mainly of triglycerides from saturated fatty acids, which is why it is solid at room temperature. Because it is high in saturated fatty acids, it has an extremely long shelf life.

  • Suitable to treat dry, itchy and inflamed skin 
  • Ideal ingredient for ointments and lip balm
