CAS#: 91078-92-1 EINECS: 293-376-2

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.

Andrew Tandingan

Jen, I have been wanting to say thank you in a very special way for a long time. I have been trying to switch as much of my business over to your shop as possible. Everyone talks about your fabulous customer service. But what I am most impressed about it how smart you are and the wide variety or products you have available for the small business, The quality of research you have posted on your site is not available anywhere else. Whenever I have a very difficult formulating problem to solve I come to your site. None of my other suppliers (many of whom I spend 100's of dollar a month with) can answer even simple questions. You have gotten back to me within minutes with very educated answers and suggestions. I feel like you have given me tools, resources, and base ingredients to really blossom. I am so grateful.
tiffany, (performancecolors)

Just wanted to say "Thank You" your customer service ROCKS IT!. I ordered a few things, and they were delivered two days later they shipped the day I placed my order. Then today I get a notification that you gave me a credit for postage. WOW, really? That never happens. Thank you for such integrity and excellent customer service.

Regards,
Deb
