Tucuma is the name of the fruit that comes from a wonderful palm native Para state - Brazil, specifically found in the Amazon Rain-forest. Tucuma butter is obtained from the seeds of the Tucuma palm through a cold press technique. It is noted for its rich Oleic acid content, it is also rich in Myristic and Lauric acids, a combination that gives it its amazing cell rebuilding/repair qualities. Tucuma butter contains a ton of beta carotene, which becomes vitamin A, an essential vitamin for healthy hair.
Tucuma Butter is a hydrating sealant. It is full of antioxidant polyphenols, which means that it is adept at battling free radicals. Because tucuma butter is full of vegetable silicone, it makes a great moisturizer which is easy to absorb, also forming a protective layer without clogging pores. The high fatty acid content ensures more moisturized, soft hair and adds shine to the hair.
