babassu oil beauty secret

Have you ever wondered why Brazilian women are so Beautiful?  Babassu Oil is one of the Traditional Beauty Secrets of these Lovely  South American Women. Babassu oil (you can buy it here) or cusi oil is a clear light yellow vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of the Babassu palm (Attalea speciosa), which grows in the Amazon region of South America. Babassu Oil’s properties are similar to that of Coconut Oil and is as wonderful as Coconut Oil for your skin, hair and body. Babassu Oil is rich in Lauric acid, the same type of Acid which is found in mother’s milk. Lauric acid is an excellent immune enhancer and can do wonders for your skin, hair and health (if taken internally). Babassu Oil remains solid (resembles coconut butter) below 24° but it melts easily when it comes in contact to the skin.

Babassu oil is composed of fatty acids, namely myristic, oleic, lauric, stearic and palmitic acids. Lauric acid makes up 50 percent of the entire composition while myristic, stearic, oleic and palmitic rounds off to 20%, 3.5 %, 10% and 11% respectively. The oil also contains plant sterols and phytostrols that magically restore skin cells.

You can use it as a Moisturizer, Hair Conditioner and Nail Strengthener. You can use it in your soap and lotion making projects because this oils is excellent for  Eczema, Rosacea, Psoriasis, Acne and Dry Skin.
