Murumuru butter is a mouthful to say, but it’s a name you should get used to. This underdog skincare product is gaining popularity for its versatility and it’s compatibility with just about all skin types. Let’s take a look at what it can do for you.
What is Murumuru Butter?
This special skin butter is made from the fat of murumuru nuts, which grow on a type of palm tree. This nut is naturally high in vitamin A and packed with skin-healthy lauric acid.
What Are its Benefits?
Murumuru butter’s biggest draw is its ability to deeply hydrate your skin and lock in moisture. Because of its high fat content, it strengthens your skin's natural lipid barrier, which means less moisture escapes.
This also makes murumuru butter a great choice for folks with skin conditions that result from a damaged skin barrier--like eczema. It should go without saying, then, that this butter is an excellent choice for those of us with sensitive skin.
This non-irritating super-ingredient is also unique because it has a similar heavy, emollient-rich quality to other heavy oils and butters, like coconut oil and shea butter. However, unlike those ingredients, murumuru butter is less likely to clog pores. So it’s safe for occasional use, even if you’re acne prone.
Because murumuru butter is high in vitamin A, you can also expect it to be a heavy-hitter in your arsenal of anti-aging products. Vitamin A is famed for its ability to fight fine lines and restore skin elasticity. Combined with murmuru’s moisturizing properties, you have a recipe for a very youthful glow.
To top it all off, murumuru butter also has anti-inflammatory properties. Some people even use it to soothe minor skin injuries, but do so at your own risk.
How to Use MuruMuru Butter
Murumuru butter is easily absorbed and feels great going onto your skin. It’s waxier than it is greasy, meaning you won’t look like a glazed donut when you put it on.
Nearly anyone can benefit from using murumuru butter, but if you are acne prone, we recommend keeping it to occasional use only, since it is a heavy butter.
There are some indications that murumuru butter renders certain sunscreen ingredients ineffective. So make sure the butter is completely dry on your skin before layering on the SPF.
You can also add a little murumuru butter to your hair for extra strength and shine and less frizz.

Mila (pronounced 'mee-luh') is mother of three, wife, and founder of Wild Ice, an all-natural cold-preserved skincare line dedicated to bringing the best of care to women everywhere.
The Cyro-C serum is by far the best vitamin C serum I have ever used. I love skincare so much and you can tell this product is made with care. The smell is amazing and I get complimented almost daily about how my face looks glowing since I started using. Mila was so kind and knowledgeable. I will definitely be rebuying once I run out!
I have oily/combination skin, so I pump/mix both and then apply, otherwise it’s too oily and doesn’t absorb quickly. This works so well! It makes your skin smell great even hours after application. I only wish this trick for oily skin was on the instructions of bottle. I didn’t realize until I saw it on one of their insta stories. Great product otherwise!
I love the 4-step facial products. The routine is easy and simple and the results are amazing. This is one of the best product lines I have used on my face, and I can really see a difference in my skin. I first purchased two of the products at Market Days in Tallahassee. When I finished the products, I went back to what I was using previously. It was not long until I decided that Wild Ice is the perfect product line for me and my dry skin. I am hooked.
I recently found these products and amazing creator at our local farmers market and all I can say is WOW! I was instantly sold from the moment I applied the cold-kept cream to my skin. I'll absolutely be going back for more from her skincare line and watching allll of her informative videos on their social media page
This is absolute gold in a bottle that smells like fresh oranges. My skin is sensitive and I do have rosacea and it drinks Cryo-C up! My complexion has greatly improved and am so happy I made the splurge. This, along with the toner, are new repeat buys for my skin routine. I look forward to my skin routine AM & PM just because it feels and smells amazing!
This has improved my skin and is very refreshing. I have sensitive skin and rosacea and this has not caused any breakouts. I use this with Cryo-C and absolutely love it! Will definitely be a repeat buy to my skin routine.
I recently purchased the complete skin care package and I absolutely love it! I’m having a hard time deciding which product is my favorite. The cleanser makes my skin so soft and helps with my overall skin appearance, The serum brightens my skin, one of the best I’ve tried and the moisturizer! It has improved every single issue I’ve been concerned with. Love love love the entire collection! Thank you so much!
I just started with this to see how my skin took it before I invested in any more products. I have used it consistently for several weeks and WOW. My skin literally feels more healthy and looks it, too! And my husband is always telling me I smell good right after I put it on. :)
I found this product at the Rosemary Beach farmers market. It is amazing! Have been using it for 2 weeks and my skin feels wonderful. I have rosacea and use others products for it, but this adds to the regimen and soathes your face. Love that it is cold (if you put it in fridge) which is so calming in the summer!
