Ingredient Spotlight: Cupuaçu

Ingredient Spotlight: Cupuaçu

Referred to as the rainforest’s shea butter, cupuaçu trees are common throughout the Amazon basin, growing in the jungles of northern Brazil.  The white pulp of cupuaçu is uniquely fragrant, described as a mix of chocolate and pineapple, and it is frequently used in desserts, juices and sweets.  The juice tastes primarily like a pear, with a hint of banana.  Commercial production of cupuaçu includes food supplements, pills, drinks, smoothies and sweets.

The pulp is also used in cosmetics products such as body lotions, as it is highly hydrating, similarly to cocoa butter.  When formulating the Sapien Women line, Surya Brasil co-founder Wanda Malhotra wanted to make sure this unique ingredient from her native Brazil was incorporated.
