This oil is derived from the Kernels of the Babassu Palm from Brazil.
Babassu has a high content of lauric and myristic acids, whose melting points are relatively close to body temperature. This oil is often mistaken for a butter as it is a soft solid at room temperature. Babassu oil has similar properties to coconut oil and is increasingly being used as a substitute.
This oil is refined without the use of chemicals.
