descriptionNOTE: Large quantities/sizes of any product may have to be special ordered. If that's the case, customers must allow a minimum of 10 business days for a new supply to arrive at our warehouse. Some products could arrive sooner, some later. Cancellations are not allowed because an item becomes 'out of stock' soon after the customer places the order, the 'out of stock' product will ship as soon as it arrives at our warehouse. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk or that include the word 'bulk' in the product's name, products offered in 5+ lbs., expensive EO's offered in 1+ lb. and certain quantities of packaging materials. If it's important for you to know before placing an order if a certain quantity's in stock, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and inquire before placing the order. The nature of our business is such that what is in stock in the morning may not be in stock in the afternoon. All products are subject to prior sale.
NOTE: If we unexpectedly encounter a problem with the packaging material used to pack the product you ordered (defective/missing part or delivery to us delayed for any reason including road/weather conditions or the manufacturer has a manufacturing delay, etc.) we cannot ship until the correct packaging part/material is delivered to us. Please understand this and do not place an order if this paragraph presents a problem for you. In 20 years in business we've only had one instance where delivery to us of empty 35 lb. pails/lids was delayed a couple of days. (Rev. 6/19/18)
Murumuru Butter is obtained from the fruit of the Brazilian Amazon tree (Astrocaryum Murumuru). The large fruits are edible and valued for their flavor in South America. From its seeds a white butter is obtained. The butter brings a desirable shine to dry, damaged hair. Murumuru Butter is hard and solid at room temperature, but melts immediately on contact with the skin. The attributes of Murumuru have been likened to Lanolin (moisture binding properties).
Suggested uses: Creams, lotions, balms, make-up foundations and bar soaps. Use from 3% to 100% pure (as a butter-like balm). Efficacy: Prevents drying of the skin due to its humectant and moisture binding properties.
Appearance: Color may range from white to yellow, it’s a solid/hard fat. Odor: Almost odorless. SAP value: 240-310. Store in a cool place, tightly sealed, away from direct light and heat. Shelf life: One year. INCI: Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter.
NOTE - IMPORTANT: Our products are sold by weight. Depending on the texture and consistency of the butter its packaging will vary, some will be dispensed in plastic ziplock bags and others will be dispensed in jars or pails.
The time of year when vegetable/nut butters are transported may cause the butter to partially or fully melt as well as to partially or fully solidify. We do not add anything to our butters, we do not melt our butters. We have no control over the temperatures to which vegetable/nut butters are subjected while in transit to the customer nor do we have any control over how they will appear when they’re delivered to the customer.
We can offer two suggestions. (1) Do not order any of our butters at certain times of the year if you’re greatly concerned about how they will arrive at the destination. (2) Order and then allow the product to return to its original state by leaving it uncovered at room temperature for as long as may be required. By ‘uncovered’ we mean you should place a clean, breathable cloth over the opening of the container to allow the product to breathe while keeping out impurities and dust while the butter returns to its normal state.
We do not accept returns, all our sales are final. We will not accept a return because a raw material arrived melted or frozen at its destination.

made for hair
Murumuru has done an excellent job on my hair. it is hard but melts very easily. I made a whipped butter out it and I use it everyday to moisturize my hair and it is very effective. My hair is healthy and shiny.

hard to find cosmetic ingredient
Murumuru butter is very difficult to find and yet once you have incorporated it into your products, you will not want to be without it again. I had ordered only a small amount from CG trying to compare theirs to others I have tried and it is outstanding. One of the most effective harder butters in your lotion bars!
OUT OF STOCK ISSUES: If a customer orders a large quantity of a product and all of the product is not in stock when the order is entered into our system, once the new stock arrives we will ship separately whatever quantity we may owe the customer. Most of our restocking orders arrive at our warehouse 5-7 business days after we place a restocking order, sometimes sooner. Should the distiller or vendor inform us restocking will take longer than 7 business days, we’ll promptly notify the customer.
Please note that we do not allow order cancellations for any reason and we don’t allow removal/cancellations of products which become partially or completely out of stock after the customer places an order.
Raw materials/ingredients are dispensed by weight. Many customers ask how many ounces in a pound, there are 16 ounces in one pound. These are not fluid ounces, they are ounces by weight.
EO = essential oil
FO = fragrance oil
Our containers are filled with products to where our commercial digital scales indicate the container should be filled. Some containers will be filled to the top, some will not.
HOW OILS ARE DISPENSED: All our products are dispensed by weight. EO's in 8 oz. through 2 lbs. - amber plastic pharmaceutical-grade bottle. EO's in 5 and 10 lbs. - heavy duty plastic container w/pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the container at least 2 months. EO's in sizes of 25+ lbs. - industry-standard metal or plastic can with a pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the metal can indefinitely and up to 2 months in the plastic pail. It's our decision in which type of pail we dispense the product, metal cans are not readily available. CARRIER OILS - plastic bottles/pails depending on the size ordered, do not need to be transferred to glass unless you wish to do so. FO's - in plastic containers, contents do not need to be transferred to glass unless you wish to do so.
Essential oils in sizes from ½ oz. to 4 oz. are dispensed in amber glass bottles without orifice reducers or glass droppers. If we ever run out of amber glass bottles, we reserve the right to use any other glass bottle available at that time. The only sizes of EO's dispensed with orifice reducers are 1/32, 1/16, 1/8 and 1/4 oz. sizes. If you require bottles/vials with orifice reducers or Eurodroppers, we sell those separately.
HOW TO STORE: Upon receipt, EO's dispensed in plastic bottles MUST be transferred into amber glass bottles. EO's, FO's and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Many oils could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames. Refrigerating butters could adversely affect the consistency of the butter, please join our Forum if you need to learn how to handle and store products.
