Babassu oil (solid) is pressed from the kernels of the Babassu palm tree. The tree is found in the south eastern Amazon region of Brazil. This oil has similar properties to Coconut or Palm Kernel oil, being high in lauric acid. Babassu butter is soft/solid at room temperature, which often brings people to call it Babassu butter. Supplied in an airtight plastic tub with screw top. For External Use Only.
