Our organically crafted Ucuúba Oil is extracted from the seeds of the Virola surinamensis tree, native to Central and South America. Ucuuba Oil is widely used for making pomades, creams, lotions, body butters, and other skin-care formulations.

Ucuuba Oil boasts many of the same benefits as Ucuuba Butter because Ucuuba Oil is actually obtained by filtrating (or fractionating) Ucuuba Butter. During the filtration process, all of the nourishing actives in Ucuuba Butter are drawn out into a concentrated oil, while the compounds that make the butter solid and waxy are left behind. Unlike Ucuuba Butter, which remains solid and waxy at room temperature, Ucuuba Oil has a consistency similar to that of a typical cold-pressed oil, thus making it easier to use in cosmetic formulations.


REPORTED BENEFITS AND USES

Due to its dark brown color and pleasant aroma, Ucuuba Oil can be used to produce dark, richly colored soaps, and it is sometimes used in candles made with vegetable-based waxes. Ucuuba Oil 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 essential fatty acids, Ucuuba Oil can assist in the maintenance of healthy skin and hair.

Also considered to have anti-aging properties, Ucuuba Oil can be used to help replenish, tone and moisture dry and mature skin. The fatty acid profile of the Ucuuba Oil 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.
