This butter instantly reminds you of Fall and the Holidays and has a beautiful honey hue. The aroma can be best described as nutmeg, cinnamon, and some spices with a splash of fresh earthiness. The butter itself is hard and has a waxy feel.This butter would be a very good contender in haircare recipes, especially if combined with Jojoba in some capacity. cuuba is nearly 70% Myristic Acid(Highly comedogenic), however it would be great for products that cleanse ex. soaps, wash off creams, hair conditioners, shaving products, etc. Ucuuba also has similar behavior to Beeswax and can be used as an emulsifying agent.
