The first of my Black Friday orders — Cupuacu Hair Butter from Pura Body Naturals (pronounced koo-poo-ah-soo). This butter came well packaged and sealed to prevent leaking/spillage. There was first a black sealing tape around the cover of the jar and then it was also shrink wrapped.
Pictured above, the butter appears very rough and possibly gritty, but it is quite the opposite. The butter is very soft with a creamy consistency upon skin contact.
Cupuacu Butter possesses a softer, creamier consistency than Cocoa Butter, and it offers exceptional moisturization for the skin and hair. Its level of water absorption is significantly higher than lanolin anhydrous. Studies illustrate that Cupuacu Butter may offer the skin broad spectrum protection from damaging UV-A and UV-B rays. The high level of essential fatty acids and phytosterols within Cupuacu Butter gives it the ability to restore elasticity to the skin and treat skin conditions including eczema and dermatitis. Cupuacu Butter is an effective ingredient for use in hair care products intended to add shine and replenish the moisture in hair. – source
The butter comes in 3 possible aromas, Tahitian vanilla, lemongrass, and unscented. I purchased the Tahitian vanilla — Heaven!
