Tucuma Butter

Astrocaryum tucuma

Tucuma butter is a valuable extraction from the seeds of a tree found in the rainforests of Colombia and Brazil, the Astrocaryum tucuma palm tree. It produces edible fruit, precious leaves, and is cultivated for its wood. The seeds are extracted from the kernel of the fruit and cold pressed into a rich butter with the results similar in composition to Murumuru Butter, which is in the same family, also derived from Brazil. Murumuru butter, like Tucuma, has earned the reputation of providing healing and repairing of the hair and skin.
