10 best natural products made with cupuaçu butter.

WRITTEN BY Grove Collaborative • 15 min read

Cupuaçu is derived from a tree in the Amazon rainforest. The cupuaçu fruit has been discovered to have not only healthy hair and skin benefits, but a high concentration of antioxidants and fiber too. These nutrients are responsible for keeping stress and inflammation at a minimum, while also helping to prevent heart disease and diabetes.* Long story short, cupuaçu is both edible and topical. At Grove, we’ve explored the skincare side of this intriguing fruit related to the cacao bean by featuring top-rated products that contain it in our list below.

FAQs

How do you pronounce cupuacu?

Great question! So it’s actually pronounced “kuh-POO-a-soo” which definitely is not what you might have expected. But hey – at least now you won’t have to worry about saying it wrong around people just because you’ve been mispronouncing it in your head this whole time!


What is cupuacu butter?

It’s a rich fruit related to the cacao bean, sourced from the Amazon rainforest. While it is possible to ingest it without issue, it’s also commonly used as an active skincare ingredient. That’s where it is most often found as a butter (versus as an oil or any other form).


Does cupuacu butter clog pores?

Nope! And it’s also got anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also great for dry skin. So there’s a whole lot to love about cupuaçu butter – and absolutely no downsides to worry about. Use as much or as little as your skin needs to feel your best and brightest!
