Murumuru butter, extracted from the fruit seeds, is rich in lauric, myristic and oleic acids. It has moisturizing and
restoration properties for hair due to the high concentration of low molecular weight fatty acids.
It also enables the recovery of moisture and natural elasticity to the skin by strengthening the skin barrier,
especially in dry and mistreated skins
One of the harmful factors to the skin is dehydration. Besides the natural evaporation, some external factors
may influence on the dehydration of the skin or destruction of the protective barrier, such as low atmospheric
humidity, pollution, very low temperatures and the use of products abrasive to the skin, such as solvents,
detergents, soap in excess and some other chemicals. The degree of water loss depends on the intensity of
exposure to those factors.
Dehydrated skin presents a dry appearance, without firmness, elasticity or vigor. The use of moisturizing cosmetics
can prevent the loss of water in two ways: by forming a barrier against the superficial evaporation or hydrating the
stratum corneum (by water contained in these formulations or by absorption of atmospheric water).
In this context, Beraca presents the RAIN FOREST 03710 (REFINED MURUMURU BUTTER), with proven efficacy on
the preservation of skin hydration and decrease in transepidermal water loss by strengthening the skin barrier.
