Incredible benefits of Babassu Oil

Babassu oil is a vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of the babassu palm tree (Attalea speciosa), which is native to the Amazon rainforest regions of South America, particularly Brazil. The oil is obtained by cold-pressing the kernels of the babassu palm fruit.

Babassu Oil has all the benefits of coconut oil without the greasiness and fragrance. This is perfect for those who don't like the fragrance of coconut.


Babassu oil is light and non-greasy, making it an excellent moisturizer for all skin types. It absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a heavy residue, helping hydrate and soften the skin.

Due to its high content of fatty acids, particularly lauric and myristic acids, babassu oil acts as an effective emollient. It helps to soothe and smooth the skin, improving its texture and overall appearance.


Babassu oil contains anti-inflammatory properties, which can help calm irritated or inflamed skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, or dermatitis. It can also alleviate itching and redness associated with these conditions.

The lauric acid in babassu oil exhibits antimicrobial properties, helping combat bacteria, fungi, and viruses on the skin. This makes it beneficial for preventing and treating acne and other microbial skin infections.

Babassu oil has a low comedogenic rating, which is unlikely to clog pores or contribute to acne breakouts. This makes it suitable for oily or acne-prone skin without causing further congestion.


Babassu oil contains antioxidants such as vitamin E, which help to neutralize free radicals and protect the skin from oxidative damage. This helps slow the aging process, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promote youthful-looking skin.


The fatty acids in babassu oil help strengthen the skin's natural barrier function, enhancing its ability to retain moisture and protect against environmental stressors. This can result in healthier, more resilient skin over time.

Babassu oil has soothing properties that can help relieve dryness, itching, and discomfort associated with various skin conditions. It also aids in the healing of wounds, cuts, and minor burns by promoting tissue regeneration and reducing inflammation. This makes it a great aftershave.
