Beraca is the leading producer of ingredients from the brazilian biodiversity, sustainably harvested by local communities. Over the years, it has been studying the properties and efficacy of these products for the H&PC market.

Beraca´s recent research highlights the efficacy of Tucumã butter as a natural alternative to silicone. This ingredient is harvested from the Amazon by more than 90 local families, promoting strong socioeconomic development impact.

Non-hydrogenated, this lightweight and stable ingredient will bring a dry and non-greasy feel to the skin. Tests have proven the effectiveness of Beraca´s Tucumã butter for its unique sensorial properties in cosmetic formulations.
