Marvelous, Wonderful, Beautiful, Babassu Oil

Did you know that all five of our Signature Organic Face Crémes and our Sunstone Body Lotion contain Babassu Oil? This power packed seed is nutrient-dense and contains high concentrations of lauric acid, vitamin E and antioxidants. When we found this beautiful hydrating oil back in 2012, we fell in love! Here is why ~

Babassu oil is a by-product of the fruit of the Brazilian Babassu Palm tree. The Babassu tree produces a hard-shelled nut that is broken open by women known as babassu breakers.

The hard-shelled nuts contain kernels/seeds that are comprised of high amounts of oil, up to 70% oil. The oil is light, clear and solid at room temperature, yet softens and melts quickly at the touch of your skin.

This superior seed is chock-full of vitamin E, antioxidants and fatty acids that offer anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. Its ability to absorb quickly gives your skin the hydrating and softening it needs. 

Here are five additional reasons we use this superior oil in all of our skin care products: 

  1. Fights Acne because of its anti-fungal and anti-microbial This nourishing oil is also aids in the healing of acne scarring;
