Benefits: Babassu Oil - Organic and other parts of the plant are used for various medicinal purposes in South America, such as to treat skin conditions, wounds, inflammation, and stomach problems. The oil is rich in antioxidants, which are compounds that can help reduce cellular damage caused by harmful free radicals.
CW Apothecary is a wholesale bulk supplier of Babassu Oil - Organic that is extracted from kernels found within the fruit of the babassu tree. Our organic babassu oil 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 organic babassu oil. Due to its high content of saturated fatty acids, primarily Lauric Acid (C12:0), the oil is highly resistant to rancidity.
Suggested Uses: Babassu Oil - Organic is primarily used for skin and hair care, but it can also be used in food and as a cooking oil. People throughout the Amazonian rainforest region also use the oil to help with wounds, inflammation, and other conditions. Babassu Oil makes the skin feel smooth and conditioned. This oil penetrates quickly without a greasy after touch.
