Murumuru butter is considered to be a vegetable silicone with natural antifungal and antibacterial properties. It provides moisture and forms a breathable film on the skin to protect from environmental damage and pollution. It contains 45% Lauric acid which soothes and provides anti-inflammatory enefits to skin.
Recent research has shown date palm seed extract to have free-radical scavaging properties, which not only protects skin from environmental factors but also improves skin natural defenses against oxidative stress.
Ucuuba tree, also known as Baboonwood, is native to the Amazonian region. The butter pressed from its seeds produces a hard butter that is similar in scent and texture to beeswax. Ucuuba butter is known to have antiseptic properties and is used in Brazil to treat inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, acne, and irritated skin.
Frankincense resin and oil contain an abundance of phytochemicals which are naturally astringent and strengthening for the skin. Frankincense helps fade hyperpigmentation, remodels tissue, firms and strengthens the skin's barrier while also providing antibacterial and antiviral support.
