Natural butters are universal in their abilities to better the health of our natural hair; they also have their own unique properties that give them varied assets. One of those properties is their fatty acids. Fatty acids are molecules that consist of long chains of lipid-carboxylic acids that can be found in fats, oils, and cell membranes. They come from animal and vegetable fats and oils and are created when fats are broken down. They are major sources of energy and most diets contain a great deal of them. Fatty acids are made up of good fats and are significant for our bodies. We love butters and one of the reasons is for their fatty acids but do you know what each fatty acid brings to your favorite butter? Shea, Tucuma, Mango, Kokum, Murumuru, Ucuuba, and Cocoa butter are the most popular natural butters we seem to never get enough of. This is what each of them can do for you.
