Babassu oil is filled with vitamin E, antioxidants and fatty acids that make it naturally hydrating as well as anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory. Comprised of lauric and myristic acids, this oil has a melting point close to the human body temperature, meaning that it usually melts on contact, just like coconut oil.
