Ingredient to Know: Murumuru Butter
What is it?
Extracted from the seeds of the Astrocaryum murumuru plant that is found and grown across the Amazon in Brazil, it comes from the white fat found in the nuts of a palm tree. The butter is an emollient which is good for moisturization.
How does it benefit hair?
Since the butter is classified as an emollient, it can help moisturize hair. It can also aid in the softening of your hair which may increase manageability when styling or carrying out your hair care routine. People that deal with dry hair can use this butter to remedy their strands.
Uses of murumuru butter in hair care routines:
There are some people who have access to this butter in its natural form. However, that may not be the case for us. The butter can be used alone on hair and skin. As it’s becoming more popular, it’s also added to formulas of hair care lines. Specifically those for dry, damaged or color-treated hair.
