Tucuma oil for skin and hair

Tucuma oil (Astrocaryum Vulgare) is native to the Amazonian region, possibly to the state of Pará, where it is mainly centered and reaches Suriname and French Guiana.

The tucuma oil extracted from the pulp contains 25.6% saturated fatty acids and 74.4% unsaturated fatty acids composed of stearic, oleic, palmitic, and linoleic acids.

Benefits of using Tucuma oil:

  • Tucuma oil is also an excellent emollient that spreads well.
  • It may help with fine lines, wrinkles, and collagen production.

Tucuma oil should be suitable to use for all skin types including sensitive skin and skin of colour.
