Babassu Oil, Virgin, Refined
CAS#: 91078-92-1 EINECS: 293-376-2

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 76F/24C, 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.

Our Customers Say...
Not only does Lotion Crafter stock nearly everything I need (and good quality ingredients at that) they are conscientious and helpful with shipping arrangements.
Thanks so much and keep up the good work!
Caren Burmeister, (Second Nature)

I ordered some of the Shea Nilotica from LC and it's been sitting in my supply area for a few weeks because my household has been so busy. I am just now getting around to trying it for the 1st time and let me just say...WOW!! I am head over heels in LOOOVE with the Shea Nilotica. I've used other re-fined and unrefined she butters but this is by far superior. I can't believe how creamy it is and how satiny my skin feels. Right after I used a little I slathered some on my 3 yr old! Oh how happy I am that I ordered the 5 pound bag rather than just a sample size after I called Jen to inquire about it. LC rocks!
Kara Knox

Wow, quality products and SUPER FAST shipping! I ordered this on a Tuesday, and it was shipped THAT day. I received it just two days later. Just wonderful. Thank you so much!
