What is Ucuuba Butter . . .
A few lucky ones know this extraordinary ingredient. Ucuuba Butter is the family of Nutmeg.This species prefers flooded regions, and reaches a height of 25 to 35 m and can can produce between 30 to 50 kg of seeds per year which are cold-pressed and yields around 30% Ucuuba butter – rich in anti-inflammatory antiseptic properties successful for treating rheumatism, arthritis + skin ulcerations to make soaps + aromatic candles.
The Ucuuba butter we use @ J. Lexi is cold-pressed, unrefined + organic, without the dark black out layer, so that it is softer, has a light brown color + smells wonderful earthy resembling nutmeg.
Ucuuba butter is ultra rich in Lauric, Myristic and Palmitic acid – crucial in healthy cell development, regulation of the immune system and maintenance of healthy skin + hair.
Ucuuba butter is also rich in . . .
Vitamin C – contributes for maintaining a healthy skin by promoting wound healing and by protecting cellular DNA against damage caused by oxidation. Vitamin C helps to improve wound healing by stimulating fibro-blasts to divide and by promoting their migration into the wounded area speeding the healing process of the skin damage.
Vitamin A (retinol) – vitamin A derivatives helps to unclog pores, boost collagen synthesis, reduces fine lines, speed cell renewal, evens out discoloration and smoothes the skin.
Rich in in phenols with anti-inflammatory, healing and antiseptic properties.
This butter has a splendid earthy scent and color. You can use for making healing soaps, balms + salves for helping to treat eczema + psoriasis.
@ J. Lexi, my goal is to delight your senses by using as many pure raw unrefined butters+ oils, as we can.
Isn’t the Ucuuba butter in the above picture beautiful? Look at the shading, marbling + colors on the bottom. The Ucuuba shown in this blog post is the actual butter used in my latest batch of Sulfur + Salicylic Acid. It’s on the curing rack + will be ready by March 14th.
Those who’ve used Sulfur + Salicylic Acid experienced the skin-beautifying benefits + requested a larger bar to help combat body acne or “bacne” . . . your wish is my command, the Sulfur + Salicylic Acid body bar will also be ready March 14th.
