Cupuaçu, a relative of cocoa, helps heal skin barrier function to improve elasticity and firmness. It delivers true hydration to keep skin looking smooth, healthy, and plump.

Alone amongst every plant known, cupuacu fruit contains phytonutrient polyphenols (theograndins) which work to prevent the spread of free radicals. It contains amino acids, nourishing fatty acids, and is rich in vitamin A. Being from the cocoa family, cupuacu also has a high flavanoid content.

Cupuaçu butter has a low melting point so it liquifies and absorbs quickly without leaving an oily residue. What also sets Cupuaçu apart from the rest is its unmatched ability to hold up to 240% of its own weight in water.
