INCI: Garcinia Indica (Kokum) Butter
Rich in antioxidants and Vitamin E, Kokum butter is often used as a substitute for Cocoa Butter. It's derived from the fruit of India's native Kokum tree, and harbours antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Kokum butter is one of the hardest and most stable vegetable butters available. It is solid at room temperature but melts immediately when applied to the skin. It has a high fatty acid content, comprising of up to 80% of stearic-oleic-stearic (SOS) triglycerides. It is non-greasy, which makes it great as both a mosturiser and a scalp treatment. It is an excellent emollient and absorbs quickly into the skin, promoting elasticity and skin regeneration.
Traditionally, Kokum butter has been used traditionally to treat infections, digestive disorders, and even arthritis.
