Babassu oil is obtained from the nuts of the babassu, a coconut like fruit, Orbignya oleifera, Palmaceae by cold pressing.
Babassu palm is native to north eastern Brazil. The oil is very similar to coconut oil and is applied like coconut oil as an edible as well as an cosmetic and soap making oil. It is a non drying oil with a titer point of around 25 degrees, it melts by skin contact and leaves a very pleasant skin feel.
Babassu oil contains around 50% lauric acid, 20% myristic acid, 6% palmitic acid and 15% oleic acid.
It is an excellent emollient oil with wound healing properties and beneficial to both greasy and dry skin. In soap making it imparts to hardness as well as a bubbly foam, getting more and more attractive as a replacement for palm or palm kernel oil for added hardness to palm-free soaps. In SkinChakra® soaps, we apply Babassu oil up to 10%
