WHY IS IT SO GOOD
Cupuaçu butter is a wonderful butter with many beneficial properties for both the skin and hair.

Also rich in oleic, palmitic and linoleic acids Cupuaçu butter delivers true healing and restructuring benefits to the skin as it helps to improve the skins’ elasticity, regenerate skin cells and relieve skin irritations.
