Organic Babassu Oil
Babassu Oil, Orbignya oleifera, expeller pressed from the seeds of the native Brazilian babassu palm, has been used for generations by indigenous cultures of South America as a natural moisturizer. A fast penetrating oil commonly used in hair and skin products, Babassu is one of nature’s richest emollients and is especially good for eczema, itchy, dry, and inflamed skin.
Like coconut oil, Babassu oil is a plant-based oil rich in saturated fats, making it solid at room temperature however, it melts quickly at body temperature. It is rich in fatty acids and vitamin E. Unlike coconut oil, babassu is lighter weight and not greasy, making it ideal for the skin.
In haircare, babassu oil nourishes, moisturizes, and restores hair strength, giving you shiny, healthy-looking hair. It can add volume to dry, flat hair without weighing it down. Babassu nourishes the scalp, and a healthy scalp usually means healthy hair. Since it is absorbed quickly it does not leave a greasy film. Some suggest babassu as a smoothing agent to deter flyaways.
