Our organically crafted Ucuuba Butter is a natural butter cold-pressed from the seeds of the Virola surinamensis tree, native to Central and South America, producing a light brown, hard and dry consistency butter with a natural woody smell. Ucuuba Butter is widely used for making pomades, creams, lotions, body butters, and other skin-care formulations.

Due to its dark brown color, high melting point and pleasant odor, Ucuuba Butter can be used to produce dark, richly colored soaps, and it is sometimes used in candles made with vegetable-based waxes. It can also be used indicated in the manufacture of care products to male skin, hair and cosmetics due to its dry and pleasant touch.


Ucuuba Butter is said to have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties and as such is ideal for treating acne, eczema and dry or irritated skin. Exceptionally rich in Lauric, Myristic and Palmitic Acids, Ucuuba Butter can assist in the maintenance of healthy skin and hair. Also considered to have anti-aging properties, Ucuuba Butter can be used to help replenish, tone and moisture dry and mature skin. The fatty acid profile of the Ucuuba Butter makes it a super choice for preventing hair damage from free-radicals and boosts shine and elasticity in the hair, while the natural antiseptic qualities help to clarify the scalp.


Our range of authentic body butters are all 100% natural and have NOT been blended with cheap fillers like Hydrogenated Vegetable Fat or Mineral Oil and additives like water, alcohol, silicon, colouring agents, synthetic fragrance, parabens and preservatives. We both manufacture and source only the finest quality butters from highly revered suppliers from all around the world, with whom we have worked with for decades. Our avant-garde in-house Quality Control Laboratory has experienced technicians and staff to provide a comprehensive product analysis for all of our topical body butters.

Suggested Use Levels: Creams, Lotions, Balms, Make-up Foundations, Bar Soaps and Hair Conditioners. Use from 3% to 100% pure (as a butter-like balm).

Packaging: Our butters are packaged in airtight plastic containers (jars or pails) and not the retail packaging. We are a wholesale supplier, and most of our customers use our butters in their product formulations. Butters can sometimes melt during transit, and these containers help ensure that the butters don't leak. Also to avoid excessive, and repeated exposure to artificial heat, we avoid heating our organic butters to pour them into jars or pails for shipping as it can be damaging to the quality of the butters. All of our butters are scraped, shaved or scooped, as needed to package them into jars or pails, without applying heat. Because of this practice, butters will always be packed into a container that might be a little bigger than the size of the melted butter. We believe that spending a little more for the package is better than jeopardizing the integrity and quality of the butter. If the butter is received in a warmed condition, due to transit, the container may appear to be less than full. This is normal, and expected, as they are packaged by weight, not by volume.

Recommended Storage: This butter should be stored in cool temperatures away from sunlight and moisture in an air-tight container. The butter will become liquid above ambient temperatures, but will re-solidify upon cooling without affecting functionality. This butter has a shelf-life of 24 months when stored properly.

This is a cosmetic product and is meant for external use only. As with all of our materials, it should not be taken internally.
