The cupuacu tree is native to the Amazon, most notably to the northern region of Brazil. The tree is similar to the cocoa tree and typically reaches an average height of 10 meters.

Cupuacu Butter is a soft, creamy butter that is pressed from the seeds of the cupuacu tree. The impressive composition of Cupuacu Butter includes Linolenic Acid, an Omega-3 essential fatty acid. It is a hydrating, versatile butter that is well suited for use in a wide array of beauty, cosmetic and personal care products.

Our premium quality Cupuacu Butter is carefully produced, sourced and packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this remarkably nutritive lipid.


Cupuacu Butter possesses a texture and consistency that is softer and creamier than cocoa butter. It is exceptionally moisturizing and hydrating. Cupuacu Butter is regarded as a highly desirable vegan alternative to lanolin because its ability to retain water and provide exceptional skin hydration is far superior to that of lanolin. Additionally, Cupuacu Butter does not carry the risk of skin sensitization that lanolin possesses.

The remarkable hydration capabilities, consistency, texture and composition of Cupuacu Butter make it well suited for use in a wide array of personal care applications that include formulations intended to soothe and support mature, severely dry and problem skin. Cupuacu Butter is also an effective ingredient for use in hair care products intended to add shine, nourish, hydrate and replenish the moisture in hair.
