Wild harvested babassu oil is extracted from the babassu palm tree. This light and non-greasy oil melts upon skin contact due to the high amounts of lauric and myristic acid. You can say that the Babassu oil has become very popular in the beauty industry because it possesses a number of fatty acids that are beneficial to the skin’s overall health. Half of the Babassu Oil’s composition is made up of lauric acid while the remaining is made from a combination of Stearic, Myristic, Palmitic and Oleic acids. It is also rich in Vitamin E and Phytosterols which act as the oil’s anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant agents.
