Babassu Oil is pressed from the seeds of the Babassu Palm Tree. When nuts ripen and fall to the ground they are gathered and cracked open by “Babassu Breakers” – women whose livelihood is to harvest and crack the nuts. Brazilian women have been using Babassu oil on their skin for centuries. Babassu oil is known for its healing powers throughout the world; it is easy to see why the tree is known as the “Tree of Life”. Babassu oil is a non-drying penetrating oil that is considered a superior emollient beneficial for either dry or oily skin and hair. It gently moisturizes without leaving an oily sheen or weight. Penetrating oils are preferred to Petroleum and Mineral Oil as both of these create a barrier on the skin and hair, nothing goes in and nothing can get out. Repeated uses of such moisturizers can clog pores and build up, potentially resulting in skin irritation and damaging the hair. Surface botanical penetrating moisture becomes complete with the soothing healing powers of Aloe and omega-3 nutrient, antioxidant rich Flax Seed Oil.
