Cupuaçu, cousin of Cacao, is a tree of the primary and rainy forests of the Amazon. Cupuaçu fruits, harvested from the ground, are known for their creamy and tasty pulp. 

In Brazil, Expanscience laboratories contribute to local economic development: the collection of the fruit brings a new source of income to the population and helps preserve biodiversity by avoiding deforestation.

The seeds are dried and then cold-pressed to obtain the raw butter. Refined in France according to the recognized know-how of Laboratoires Expanscience, the butter obtained is perfectly discolored and deodorized, with a very good stability to oxidation.

With a higher phytosterol content than other butters (shea, cocoa), Cupuaçu butter helps strengthen the hydrolipidic film and has repairing properties. Rich in moisturizing fatty acids, Cupuaçu butter is also very nourishing.

It is a true vegetal alternative to lanolin, thanks to its excellent capacity to maintain the moisturization of the skin. The butter of Cupuaçu relieves and softens the driest skins and repairs desiccated, damaged hairs. All its delicacy lies in its inimitable fondant which gives to the formulas a "velvety" feel.
