Murumuru Butter

Murumuru Butter (Astrocaryum murumuru) is a pure, natural butter obtained from the Murumuru palm, and is one of the most unique butters for use in skin care, lip care products, cosmetics.  It is a very stable butter which adds to its popularity and usefulness in so many applications, from cosmetics, to hair and skin care and more. The butter is natural and is only  expeller and cold pressed.

Typical uses for this very unique butter include: top shelf creams, lotions, balms, make-up foundations and bar soaps. Use from 1% to 100% pure (up to 100% as a butter-like balm).

Efficacy: Prevents drying of the skin due to its humectant and moisture binding properties. Murumuru Butter can be incorporated in high quantities by percent , up to 100%, since it has good stability due to the high content of  lauric, myristic, and linoleic acid, as well as Omega 3 and 6,  vitamins A and C.

Murumuru butter’s natural gloss brings a desirable and healthy looking  shine to dry, damaged hair. Because of the shine it gives it is sometimes used as a natural replacement for silicones and mineral oils.

Murumuru Butter is solid at room temperature, but melts immediately on contact with the skin.

Our Murumuru Butter is perfect for making nourishing, moisturizing lotions, creams, lip care products and more. Use it in a massage oil too. As you formulate your products with this unique butter you will find more uses for it and it will become a "go-to" favorite. Many users tell us it is the perfect choice for helping dry & irritated skin conditions and good for wrinkles & for treatment of sun damaged skin.

Murumuru Butter is one of the most stable butters known. It contains natural antioxidants that prevent rancidity and give it a storage life of up to two years.

    Extra decadent mango butter

    Posted by Eleanor Thorne on Dec 7th 2020

    I use murumuru butter where I'd use mango butter in lotions, lotion bars, and lip balms and I've really liked it. It's moisturizing and minimally greasy.

    Murumuru Butter

    Posted by Michele Richardson on Dec 2nd 2020

    I've previously used this butter and it has become my all time fav!!!! This is the first time I've purchased from this site, however, it will not be my last. Delivery may be a little slower, but it's definitely worth the wait based on price and quantity.

    I use this butter in my soap along with shea & cocoa butters and avocado & jojoba oils. Makes for a lovely "everyday luxury" bar. And it's coconut & palm free. Also planning a luxury hand cream and many other items. It will be a staple ingredient in my products and I love that I can get 10lbs here for the price of 5lbs elsewhere. Thank you MakeYourOwn!

    My new favorite!

    Posted by Eleanor Thorne on Apr 15th 2020

    I tried murumuru butter on a whim and it has become one of my favorite body butter and lotion butters! I'm going to try it in lip balm next! It is smooth, absorbs quickly into the skin, and isn't greasy! Score!

    Absolutely lovely butter. Works perfectly in my soap recipe in place of coconut oil and feels amazing on hands. Can't wait to try in my Luxury Hand Cream!
