Clearwater Apothecary is one of the leading suppliers of Babassu Oil - Organic along with other speciality oils and butters. Babassu Oil - Organic is extracted from kernels found within the fruit of the babassu tree. Our Babassu Oil - Organic undergoes a refining process which results in a clean, soft-solid oil at room temperature with a whitish color. Refining also removes the odor and taste from our Babassu Oil - Organic. Due to its high content of saturated fatty acids, primarily Lauric Acid (C12:0), the oil is highly resistant to rancidity. The physical characteristics and uses of organic babassu oil are very similar to that of coconut oil. Babassu Oil makes the skin feel smooth and conditioned. This oil penetrates quickly without a greasy after touch.
