    Produced in Belem at the mouth of the Amazon River where it’s harvested by local farmers - Murumuru is a lot like coconut oil where the Murumuru butter comes from the white fat found in the nuts of this Amazonian palm tree. It’s a very sour fruit that’s usually consumed by animals as soon as it falls, but those who know it use it in cosmetic products.
