Why we use Cupuacu Butter.
-Cupuaçu is a cousin of cocoa
-The Amazonian superfruit cupuaçu (pronounced ku-pu-ah-SU) is one of nature’s most powerful moisturizers. It may not be as well known in the U.S. as Açaí.
-The amount of moisture cupuaçu provides when used in skincare formulas is unmatched.
-Cupuaçu is a source of Iron, Phosphorus, and amino acids necessary for protein absorption and cell formation. It is also a great source of oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that is good for heart health and helps support muscle growth and the fat-burning process. Therefore, it is consumed by people who want to build muscle mass. It is also full of Vitamins C, B1, B2, and B5, which can boost the immune system, fight the harms of stress and help the formation of Red Blood Cells. Finally, its high content of fibers helps regulate your bowel movements. You can view our products that contain Cupuacu butter here.
Aloe Vera: You can use aloe vera to keep your skin clear and hydrated. This may be because the plant thrives in dry, unstable climates. To survive the harsh conditions, the plant’s leaves store water. These water-dense leaves, combined with special plant compounds called complex carbohydrates, make it an effective face moisturizer and pain reliever. the aloe plant boasts anti-inflammatory properties. Its proposed anti-inflammatory activity is thanks to polyphenols, a group of antioxidant-rich plant compounds. One study found that taking 40 mcg of aloe sterol per day for 12 weeks improved skin elasticity in a group of men under age 46. Topically applying aloe vera is commonly believed to help treat certain skin conditions. Some research has found that taking aloe vera supplements may help improve skin elasticity and reduce wrinkles, but more studies are needed.
