Please note: It's summer and it's hot! Babassu Oil melts at very low temperatures. In summer temperatures, you can expect that this product may be completely liquid on arrival. We suggest refrigerating it on arrival to cool and resolidify if necessary. We appreciate your understanding.

 

Babassu Oil is cold pressed from Babassu Palm kernels. Babassu oil is considered a less greasy, more silky feeling replacement for coconut oil with more oleic and linoleic acid. This moisturizing oil melts at 76°F/24°C, and melts on contact with skin. It has a shelf life of about 2-3 years.

One study showed that incorporating Babassu Oil at 7% to 10% in an oil-in-water lotion was the most effective level at reducing transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and increasing moisturization in human subjects.

Total phytosterols are approximately 674 mg/kg.

Total tocopherols are approximately 30 – 130 ppm.

When running a small business cost is a very big deal. So far no one can match Lotioncrafter's prices, the 2nd most important thing is speed of shipping, I still can get over just how fast I get my orders. They have a life time customer here in Chicago..
