Babassu oil: non-toxic for delicate skin

Want your skin to be tender, beautiful and healthy? Try using Babassu Brazilian oil extracted from palm fruits! This universal remedy (in pure form or as a part of cosmetic preparations) was time to be estimated all over the world.

Origin and receipt

Written sources on Babassu oil were first mentioned in the 18th century, when its fruits were brought to Britain. The oil is obtained from the nuts of the palm tree Attalea speciosa, which grows in America, in the Amazon. Nuts contain up to 60% of healthy oil. The fruits of palm trees are used in cooking and cosmetology.

Palm seed oil is obtained by cold pressing, pressing it mechanically, and then purified by natural means, without using solvents. It has a pleasant creamy white color, has a very weak delicate aroma. The tool has a hard texture (like butter), but when applied to the skin it melts easily, because it melts at a temperature of + 23-30 ° C. In the liquid state (+ 28 ° C and above), the oil is light yellow, with a faint pleasant smell.

Benefits and features

Babassu oil has a rich and valuable composition. It found essential fatty acids - saturated and unsaturated, as well as vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant) and phytosterols, which reduce cholesterol levels. The concentration of healthy fatty acids in nuts Attalea speciosa reaches 65%!

  • 28% myristic;
  • 8% palmitic;
  • 48% lauric;
  • 6% stearic;
  • 20% oleic;
  • 4% capric;
  • 4% caprylic;
  • 2% linoleic.

  • protect the face and body from the aggressive effects of external factors;

Babassu oil, like coconut oil, is easy to apply, does not clog pores, does not leave a greasy luster. By its composition, it is close to the natural skin fat (sebum), therefore it perfectly interacts with the skin, without creating a film and stickiness.
