Product: Candela Peru’s 100% Pure Cupuaçu butter (Theobroma grandiflorum). Cold-pressed. Unrefined. Fair Trade. Vacuum sealed block format. All versions are grown and processed without chemical inputs.
Profile: Cupuaçu butter is rich in oils and has a high capacity of liquid retention, which makes it ideal to prevent skin from drying. It is specially recommended for delicate areas of the skin such as the face, the skin around the eyes and lips. It is also one of the most effective butters when it comes to repairing damage caused by UV radiation.
Skin Care: A high-performance natural ingredient in skin and hair care products. Typically used in balms, natural sunscreen and make-up foundations. Use from 3% to 100% pure. Cupuaçu butter also contains phytosterols (beta-sitosterol in particular), which operate at the cellular level. Phytosterols are used topically in the treatment of dermatitis diseases and to stimulate the healing process.
Quality: Candela Peru is a well-established producer of high-quality natural ingredients and supplies bulk product to some of the worlds largest cosmetics brands.
Sustainability: Candela Peru is a leading supplier of natural butters and oils to the cosmetics industry.
