This is by far one of the best butters I have ever used. It is obvious that the quality is excellent because of the nutty aroma and consistency which are both fantastic. I love when there is a strong natural aroma on my oils and butters - this let's me know they have received minimal processing. It absorbs and soothes the skin very well. I am hooked.
This butter is awesome! It has so many amazing benefits. Worth every penny! I will be purchasing more!
Smells so lovely, the texture is so smooth and melts to the touch. Fast delivery and the pricing is great! So glad I found you guys!
The texture, smell and feel of this butter is amazing -- I look forward to using this in my soaps. Thank you
Gals and guys, don't let the color and strong aroma of this butter keep you from buying it because if you do purchase it, your hair and skin will thank you. It's a wonderful addition to DIY body butters or pain creams, etc. This butter smells just like a fig (to me) and the hubs (smelling it straight from the package) thought it smelled like fruitcake. You can easily melt it down with other butters and add in your grapeseed, jojoboa, vit e, almond - whatever you use - and knock the potent scent down a few notches. This would be best used as a pre shampoo conditione since it leaves a golden hue. Not sure if blondes would want to use it as a leave in because of that. Buy this uo, pipples, you won't be disappointed!
This is one of the best natural moisturizers I have ever used. It is rich, but it has super absorbent quality, so it leaves no residue of greasy feeling. We incorporate it in a number of out body butter formulas and it has been well received. As always the 3CayG team,provides excellent prompt shipping and a wealth of knowledge to answer every question we have. IssaWin!
I was reading about Amazonian butters like cupuacu and murumuru when I discovered bacuri butter. I was intrigued by its dark color and soft texture. It took some effort but in 3cayg I found a source for this wonderful butter. The best price out there, and the shipping was fast and reasonably priced. When I need more butters I certainly know where to shop.
I gave this a 4 rating because it is my first time using or hearing of this butter so I don't have anything to compare it to. First, let me say how fast the shipping was. I ordered and received my package within the same week. The butters arrived in solid form even though it is summer time. At first experiencing this butter is extremely soft, creamy and easy to blend. It has a natural glow and very absorbent. I plan to use in my eczema formula for winter months and perhaps some of my facial/skin care DIY's.
