Murumuru butter is obtained from the seed kernels of the murumuru palm tree (Astrocaryum murumuru), native to the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil. Its edible fruits and seed kernels are significant food source for local people, although harvesting is difficult because of the long spines that cover the palm’s steam, leaves and stalk of fruit.
Murumuru butter is solid at room temperature, but melts immediately on contact with skin. It is used to produce soaps, beauty and skincare products. Rich in nutrients such as vitamin A and C, fatty acids – Lauric acid, Myristic acid and Oleic acid(Omega-9), murumuru butter provides antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, antiallergenic, antioxidant action.
