    Babassu: (Orbignya martiana, O. oleifera, or O. speciosa), a/k/a Babacu, Coco de macaco, Aguassu. Babassu is a big palm tree about 20 meters high, native to Brazil which is extensively cultivated and presents a very important industrial and economical resource for the country. This oil is a rather stable, light yellow to almost white like water, clear oil which is employed in food, soap and detergency industries. Its color will vary from batch to batch. The oil is similar in properties and uses to coconut oil and is used increasingly as a substitute for it.

    Babassu oil is cold pressed from the kernel which contains about 72% lipids (in weight) and is ultra-refined w/o chemicals. Flour, animal feed, medicines and beverages can all be produced from the fruit, while the seeds contain oil useful for cooking and soap-making. Even the leaves provide thatch for houses and can be woven into mats for constructing house walls, while stems are used for timbers. Babassu oil does not readily become rancid. The oil may become a soft solid at room temperature (below 24 deg. F & 778 deg. C) but melts readily upon contact with the skin, under refrigeration it will turn completely solid. Suggested use levels: lotions & creams 3-5%, balms 3-10%, bar soaps 2-7%, hair conditioners 3-5%. SAP value: 247. INCI: Babassu (Orbignya oleifera) oil.

    Should've purchased a larger bottle

    Initially I used this babassu oil in my body butter mix and had good results. Now I'm thinking about adding it to my shampoo and body wash. I love that it doesn't have a scent; excellent for sensitive skin!
    Another winner

    This oil has a distinct soft scent.A great hair conditioner and body oil. A little goes a long way. This will be a stample in my products.
    Great Substitute for Coconut Oil

    Babassu oil can be used in place of Coconut oil. Provides great shine for hair. Absorbs well into skin but use sparingly. It is solid at room temperature.
    So pleased with this oil & use it every single day.

    I have short hair which I wash daily. I don't like bothering with conditioners and have found something even better--BABASSU OIL! All I use is about 1/4 tsp. (which instantly liquifies in your hands) and rub it through on my towel-dried hair. It makes my hair soft, shiny & manageable. It is not at all greasy as you might expect with other oils & makes my hair look nice & healthy. It also has a very mild, naturally clean fragrance. Thank you for making this product available at such a reasonable cost. I will definitely be buying more of this in the future.
    BEST Quality and Price!!!

    I found out about babassu oil as a non-comedogenic alternative to coconut oil for my shampoo. It works the same in my formulations but doesn't have the one bad effect on my scalp.
    Love Babassu!

    Great oil for lotions. Sinks into skin and feels light and not too greasy.

    Thanks for browsing thru this section which contains answers to many questions that are often asked of us. Here we explain where to locate CofA and SDS for a product, how we dispense and package our products, how products should be stored, basic terminology and the wait time for bulk products to ship from our warehouse. FYI: We're closed on Fridays.

    Certificate of Analysis (CofA) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS). We publish on our website those documents for most of our products, some products don't provide either because the product doesn't require it. In this same section where you're at now, look to the tab to the left titled Documents, click on it and that's where you'll find either document for the product you seek. If you do not find the document you require, please email us at so we can research further.

    BULK ITEMS: When a customer adds a bulk item to the cart, the customer’s immediately shown on the screen how many number of days should be allowed for the bulk product to arrive at our warehouse. If the bulk item happens to be in stock, we’ll ship sooner than the customer would expect. As we emerge from Covid, logistics operations are not yet back to normal, what used to arrive at our warehouse in 3 days now takes much longer. Should a vendor inform us the ordered product will take longer than what’s mentioned on our website we’ll email the customer with the latest information.


    EO = essential oil

    FO = fragrance oil



    Essential oils: in 1/32 oz. to 1/4 oz...amber glass vials with orifice reducers. ½ oz. to 2 amber glass bottles with white caps and Eurodroppers...3 to 4 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps and without orifice reducers...7 oz. in aluminum bottles...15 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps...10 & 25 lbs. in HDPE plastic containers with wide mouths although, occasionally, 25 lbs. may be dispensed in factory-issued metal containers with pouring spouts.

    28 lbs. of carrier oils and other liquids are dispensed in individual HDPE plastic gallon containers with handles, each holds the purchased net weight of liquid.

    30+ lbs. of carrier oils, other liquids, soft butters, Castile gel and other products are dispensed in plastic HDPE pails w/metal handles & pouring spouts in the lid; those products may remain inside the pails indefinitely when properly stored. After Covid, we reserve the right to use any packaging/dispensing container available to us and not mentioned above because it continues to be difficult many times to restock the same packaging container or material used in the past.

    NOTE: An EO may safely remain inside an aluminum container for up to 3 months, but if storing longer than 3 months the oil should be transferred to amber glass. Fragrances and carrier oils up to 8 lbs. may remain inside HDPE plastic bottles indefinitely. If the customer at any time feels more comfortable transferring a product to glass this should be done. ALL PRODUCTS ARE DISPENSED BY WEIGHT, THUS, SOME CONTAINERS MAY BE FILLED HIGHER THAN OTHERS DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT AND VISCOSITY OF EACH PRODUCT.

    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.

    HOW TO STORE: EOs, FOs and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Some EOs could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames. Keep all liquids and powders you purchase from Camden-Grey tightly capped and away from the reach of children, the elderly or infirm and pets. Refrigerating butters could adversely affect the consistency of the butter, please join our Forum if you need to learn how to handle, work with and store products.
